Lady Henrietta Spencer-Churchill is the daughter of the 11th Duke of Marlborough, whose family home is Blenheim Palace. Her interest in interior design began in the Baroque grandeur of Blenheim and the other great houses in which she and her family live, and on leaving school she pursued this interest by studying fine art in Florence and Paris. Her formal studies were completed in England at the world-famous Inchbald School of Design.
Lady Hernietta now runs the highly successful interior design company, Woodstock Designs, and undertakes commissions worldwide. Her fabric and wallpaper collections, marketed as Spencer-Churchill Designs Ltd, are sold through leading interior design stores, as well as in her own outlets in London and Woodstock, England, and through Grey Watkins in America. She is a past President of the British national chapter of the International Society of Interior Designers (ISID) and is an active member of the unified International Interior Design Association (IIDA).
