Amanda Guinness

Amanda’s mother Julia Blunt started JBI in 1977 and so she has grown up surrounded by pattern books and design ideas. Her love of design was fuelled by extensive travel, as well as living in Paris for 4 years, where she was inspired by the classic French aesthetic. Amanda joined her mother at JBI in 1987 in order to share her passion for designing different houses and spaces with our clients. She achieved Honours after studying at KLC School of Design. Amanda is a friendly, energetic team player who loves sharing her extensive knowledge and bouncing ideas and concepts off colleagues and clients alike.
