Now based in Tyler, TX, Leslie Jenkins by Jenkins Interiors offers the client a truly singular design experience ranging from architectural consulting and space planning to project design, interior design and decorating.
Jenkins graduated from the University of Nebraska with a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design and a minor in Art History. Her desire to incorporate all areas of design led to a job with a Houston architecture firm. That training and experience prepared Leslie for a future career as an independent designer. Leslie resides in both Dallas & Tyler with her husband and two sons.
Sixteen years ago, Leslie made a move to Dallas, where she brought together her architecture background and her unique design style to start her own interior design business — Jenkins Interiors. Leslie’s talent and reputation for creating stylish-but-livable spaces with a fresh distinction quickly put her business into the spotlight.
One thing that truly sets Leslie apart from the rest is her passion for authentic European pieces. Jenkins personally travels to Europe several times throughout the year to hand select hidden treasures for her clients and her shops. In addition, she and her colleagues travel to the LA, New York and Atlanta markets in order to provide more unique furnishings than what is available at the local or regional marketplace.
Custom-made home furnishings, contemporary and mid-century furniture, European antiques, accessories from around the globe, artwork from featured artists (including Leslie’s own work) can be found in each of her shops: Blue Print in Dallas and Blue Print Too in Tyler.
Leslie Jenkins’ rich background in interior design and art history and her passion for European influences enable her to transform every space into an oasis for her clientele. She is best loved for her ability to create functional, sophisticated spaces, and she travels frequently to Europe in search of unique, one-of-a-kind pieces. Her talent and knowledge offer a fresh, timeless flair to every design. From architectural consulting and space planning to full-scale residential interior design, her firm has offered clients a truly singular design experience for more than two decades. Her distinctive portfolio features a broad spectrum of styles and a wide variety of projects, including transitional-style weekend retreats, modern high-rise flats, and glamorous, traditional homes.
Jenkins’ designs represent the perfect juxtaposition of bespoke furnishings, contemporary and mid-century designs, hand-selected antiques, artwork, and one-of-a-kind pieces from around the world.
When you step into a space designed by Leslie Jenkins, you instantly feel at home. Her European influence transforms a room into an oasis away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
