Lady Henrietta is the eldest daughter of the 11th Duke of Marlborough whose family home is Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire. She studied at the Inchbald School of Design before forming her own highly successful interior design company, Woodstock Designs, in 1981 undertaking commissions worldwide. Woodstock Designs are specialists in residential design from renovation of period properties to new build houses and experts in incorporating current trends and technology whilst respecting the historic character and architecture. Lady Henrietta joined the BIID in 1981.

On Wednesday 11 June, Lady Henrietta will take her audience on a journey through a stunning selection of historic homes in both England and the United States to reveal the best of architectural and furnishing details from the last three hundred years. Based around her book The Life of the House, How Rooms Evolve, her talk will explore ideas on updating these spaces for modern times. Following the presentation, there will be an exclusive drinks reception for BIID members, where they can meet with other designers in a relaxed and informal setting.
