Wow it’s December Already!
Wow it’s December already and Christmas is a blip away. The last few months have flown by, with client meetings around the country, international design tours and social events. We’ve had tonnes of new design work, which has kept the team flat chat.
When I sat down to write this update to you I found it great reflecting on what our team has been able to experience and achieve over these last few months. I am so grateful for all the amazing people who share this with us.
In September I went on a brilliant design trip to the South of France and Italy where I made some great new friends, got to catch up with lovely old friends in the Auvergne and fell in love with some absolutely fabulous pieces that I had to bring back to Australia.
Back in Oz, a few visits to Melbourne and Hamilton Island continuing the work on planning the renovations of apartments that were damaged by Cyclone Debbie.
One of our commercial design projects was put in the spotlight when it won the HIA-iLandscape Sunshine Coast / Wide Bay Housing Awards – Commercial Interior Design Project 2017. I love designing medical practices like this, which are usually cold and uninviting.
Our Melbourne Cup celebration was great with the Di Henshall Team taking out most of the day’s winnings. To all the Resident Hero boys ‘n’ gal we promise this was not rigged, we were just evening the score from last year. I think the fascinators had a lot to do with our luck!
Our Christmas Party would not be the same unless it was held at my place and included a traditional Christmas dinner, side dishes made with love by the team, then followed by pudding and the most amazing dessert compliments of Claudia’s husband Robbie. This was all worked off with a boogie on the dance floor, a few games of pool and loads of laughter.
We are well and truly settled into our new premises now and have had some clients pop in to take a look around. If you haven’t had the chance to visit us to see how we work, including how our cabinetry and custom furniture is created, please give us a call and we will give you the grand tour!
Thank you for your friendship and support this year, and I wish you and your family a magical Christmas and prosperous New Year.
Until next time,
