Di Henshall

I recently came across this designer as I was researching and thought I would share her with you.
Di Henshall is a UK qualified Interior designer who has established her business in Noosa QLD Australia since 1988. She has won many awards particularly in bathroom and kitchen design.
What first caught my attention was the bold use of patterns in this bedroom combined with a very simple layout and bedding.
I love the Chandeliers and the mix of patterns if the wall paper and the chair upholstery. I really like how she has balanced the patterns with very unfussy furniture and table settings.
I am liking the repetition of the curve from the wall paper in the side table and of course I love the flowers.
Here are some more pictures of Di's work that caught my eye.
If you want to see more of Di's work you can visit her website here.
Have a great day!

  8. What a talented designer I really loved her work, Thank you for sharing this with us. I love the way some people are able to mix patterns like that & keep it looking so clean & fresh. I especially enjoyed the dining room in the second pic, I lkie the idea of a mirror wall for the chandelier to glisten off. Thanks Nellie
