Henrietta Spencer-Churchill is the elder daughter of the 11th Duke of Marlborough. She became interested in interior design at the age of 16, when she studied fine art and languages in Florence and Paris. In 1981 she set up her own design company, Woodstock Designs, making her name with fabric and wallpaper designs, many of which draw inspiration from the heritage of Blenheim Palace. She has written extensively for Collins & Brown, with titles including Classic Georgian Style, Classic Entertaining, Classic Fabrics and Classic Decorative Details.
