30 Years in Design
Well the year is quickly coming to an end and we are baffled at the thought. It hasn’t been a regular year here at Di Henshall Interior design though, it has actually been rather special. This year marks 30 years in business as Di Henshall Interior Design!! A remarkable achievement if we do say so ourselves. If you know us at all, we certainly didn’t keep it low key. The week started off with two newspaper articles, followed by a surprise party for Di and then wrapped up with a weekend trip to Melbourne! It has been a whirl wind of good wishes and champagne as we celebrated a mammoth achievement for Di.

It was only a week before the 30th birthday celebration that we were at the HIA Awards night where we took home the award for Best Kitchen Design. If you remember from our previous newsletter, it was the kitchen that we transformed from a dark and tired space into a bright and functional kitchen for our clients. Pictured below is the award winning kitchen along with Di and our wonderful clients.

Di’s Architectural Tour
Well, Di’s been busy collecting worldly ideas again, this time throughout Scandinavia as she set off on a guided architectural tour. A purposeful trip for Di to experience and learn about architects and designers across northern Europe. Di was one of the first people in years allowed in to see Jørn Utzon’s home in Denmark. A privilege like no other to designers and the like. (If you don’t know who he is – think Sydney Opera house!) Totally in her element, we were worried about not getting her back! Fortunately, she is back in the office and sharing her wonderful ideas for future jobs.
The same beautiful home that won Best Kitchen Design also featured in this issue of Queensland Homes. It goes into detail about the clients’ brief and how we achieved a modern European take on a weary 80s home in Noosaville. You can grab yourself a copy in newsagents or just give us a bell and we will fix you up with a copy.
With Christmas and New Year fast approaching, we wish you all the best for this silly season and will check in with you next year.
Until next time,
Di Henshall & The Team
