Reigniting the renovation spark for Sydney homeowners

No matter the scale of the vision, any renovation is an incredibly exciting and challenging undertaking. So it was our pleasure to welcome some 50 guests, all of whom are either planning or already in the throes of a renovation, to our latest design destination, Hive by Laminex in Alexandria, NSW, for our wildly successful ‘A Date with Design’ afternoon.

Led by design sage Lisa Green, editor of Australian House & Garden magazine, and Laminex’s own design marketing manager, Catherine Valente, the event used our experts’ passion for great design as a means of injecting a fresh dose of inspiration and enthusiasm into our guests’ own renovation journeys.

With Lisa sharing insights from her recent visit to Milan’s Furniture Fair, Catherine lent her expert advice, shedding light on how best to translate the latest design trends into concepts fit for their own homes and budgets.

And this personalised approach paid off. Those who, at the start of the event, had felt they were stuck in a design rut were completely reinvigorated by the time they left Hive; buzzing with the creative confidence to embark on the next phase of their project.

Guests also walked away from Catherine’s masterclass with a new take on Laminex products. While many hadn’t previously made the connection between Laminex and great design, interacting with our technology, products and design consultants showed everyone just how Hive could help them achieve their design dreams.

State-of-the art visualisers allowed guests to not only find their own individual style, but also bring it to life in a customised digital space. And as the event came to a close and the prize draw was announced, Lisa Walsh won the chance to take her Laminex experience a stage further, with a free Premium Design Service consultation valued at $495.

Congratulations to Lisa, and a huge thanks to our speakers and all our attendees for making ‘A Date with Design’ such an inspiration-fuelled afternoon.
