Time Flies When You’re Having Fun
They say time flies when you’re having fun and my goodness half the year has passed by already and we aren’t quite sure where it’s gone. We have taken on various projects across different states and postcodes which will be keeping us busy throughout this last part of 2018. So, take a look at what has been going on in the lives of the Di Henshall Interior Design team.
The design team braved the cold and rainy weather and ventured down to Melbourne for the annual Denfair trade show – A place where designers get the warm and fuzzies finding new products and innovative ideas for our clients. Not a bad excuse to relish in the local fare either (Melbourne is a vegetarian’s dreamland)
Di’s trip to London and Amsterdam
Di had a very fast trip to the UK in May to attend the amazing Clerkenwell Design Week, where an entire suburb of inner-city London opens its collective design company doors to the design industry. Di clocked up 27,000 steps in one day, trudging through street after street of the latest innovative products. After a brief trip out of London to visit Hever Castle in Kent (childhood home of Anne Boleyn), Di took off to Amsterdam for a few days of fun with some very close friends. We all got to have some Dutch cheese when she got back – yes, she declared it! AND – one of our former designers, Claire, from Wales, caught up with Di in London (see second pic).
Why do you hire an interior designer?
Well, because interior designers are a magical bunch! Turning otherwise dark and tired spaces into light filled, invigorating spaces. Behold the allurement of good interior design below…
Feature in IN Noosa magazine
If you haven’t already, you should pop down to any good café or retail store in Noosa to pick up the latest issue of In Noosa magazine. We are featured across two pages in this issue, talking about one of our star New Zealand homes. I know that most of our wonderful clients and friends may be reading this newsletter 10,000kms away from Noosa, so if you would like us to send you a copy of the magazine all you have to do is ask and we will send you a copy. ?
Queensland Homes Feature
We’re trying not to repeat ourselves but we just really love this design project we completed in New Zealand last year. As it turns out, the magazine editors do too! The wonderful team at Queensland Homes has always kept an eye on our projects and have also published our latest New Zealand home in their last issue. Keep an eye on their next issue due in September where we have a local project featured this time.
We have been working on a couple of exciting projects in Brisbane which will be in a picture-perfect condition very shortly. By the next newsletter we will have some gorgeous photos to share with you on the projects.
Di is also about to embark on another architectural tour of northern Europe, so there’ll be more stories about that in our next newsletter to you.
Our repeat business remains at around 70%, which Di still finds amazing. She and all the team are so thankful and grateful for the support we get from our beloved clients, who have learned to trust our intuition and guidance with their businesses and homes.
Until next time,
Di Henshall & The Team
