We would like to say Merry Christmas to everyone from all of us at Enoki! It has been a very busy and exciting year and we can't wait to see what 2013 has in store! To those of you we have worked with this year thank you for your support and we look forward to working with you again next year. We had a lot of fun designing christmas tea towels this year, based on the words that represent christmas for each of us as you can see below. We will be closing up shop today at midday and will be back on the 14th of January. Have a great Christmas! From the Enoki team Judd, Susanna, Alex, Lisa, Leigh and Amber xxoo

Judd, Susanna, Alex and Lisa attended the blessing of the new Teresa Moore Centre, home to the Cabra Dominican Sisters last weekend. It was a beautiful day and a beautiful ceremony. We have worked with the sisters on both their new interior and exterior signage together with the project architect Peter Moeck. Peter, as always was an outstanding team leader and collaborator and a lot of fun to work with! Below are Judd and Susanna enjoying the sunshine with Sister Enid.
We had a double win on thursday this week! We had a scrumptious lunch to celebrate Ambers birthday at Pizza E Mozzarella Bar in the city - if you haven't been before check it out - it was delicious! We were also celebrating Leigh's win of the footy tips - hence the embarrassing crown we made her wear! Our second win was at Bocce! Although we lost our last game, which was a three way tie-breaker, we were the overall winners of our time bracket with a shiny new trophy to prove it! Yey for Enokians!
We thought we would share some photographs with you of a gorgeous kitchen renovation we recently completed. The Heading kitchen is full of contemporary quirks intertwined with traditional detailing. The wall and ceiling panelling was given a slathering of white paint, brightening the space and pulling out existing features such as the timber window frames and beams. The black and white colour palette is complemented with a spark of mint green, subtly interjected with tile grout, power point backing plates and furniture. American Oak adds warmth, whilst the robust nature of Carrera marble provides a classic yet solid work top. Custom timber shelves were detailed right down to 'v' grooves for crockery display and black metal fixtures. We would also like to thank the lovely Bri Hammond for her photography of this project.
I was very excited this weekend to walk into Hot Chocolate, a homewares shop on the Parade Norwood and see our Broth Cushions on display throughout the store. They looked beautiful in amongst the other products and have apparently been doing very well! To see more of our broth cushions check out our website!
We have sadly come to the end of our murals project with Glen Osmond Primary School. It has been so much fun working with the kids in room nine and we think the murals look awesome! The kids each came up with their own environmental warrior then painted them into their environments of the city suburbs or bush. Here are some of the pics from the final products.
We have had a week full of live music this week! Leigh travelled to Melbourne earlier in the week to see Coldplay at Eddihad stadium supported by Temper Trap and Alex was lucky enough to see the beautiful Sigor Ros at Thebby Theatre on Thursday. We have picked one song from each for our song of the week. Enjoy!!
Most of the Enoki team attended the Laminex Group DIA SA Awards on Friday night and it was a great night! The venue was kept secret and we were told to meet at the rotunda in the city. We then floated around the Torrens on Popeye with champagne in hand before being led to the festival centre for the awards. We were lucky enough to be awarded with the Laminex Group Award 2012 for the common! Congrats to everybody else who went home with awards on the night, there was some truly inspiring work.
The graphics crew at Enoki went back to school again on friday to finish off the water tank murals at Glen Osmond Primary School. We once again split up into our groups 'city', 'suburbs' and 'forest' and it was time for the kids to paint the buildings and their characters onto the tanks. We began by drawing the buildings onto the maps in grey. Above is the city, complete with hospital, bakery and zoo! Next step was to draw the characters onto the map in chalk. As everybody rubbed off their character and redrew it atleast once, this was a great lesson in pacing ourselves and the drafting stages of artwork. Then came the paint, and the murals really came to life! Everybody had a great time adding their own personal touch to the murals, something they will be able to look back on for years to come. We had a bit of fun too!
Enoki played our round 2 bocce match at Hindmarsh square last week. We played against Bendigo Bank this time and although there was a bit of luck involved we won again! Go team! here's a few snaps of the fun below. It was Leigh's first game as a cold roller and she dominated! Looking forward to next week!
We were lucky enough recently to work on a very fun project for the award winning Barossa Cheese company in Angaston. Our lovely clients Victoria and Frances were looking for some unique, eye-catching signage for the side of their building, and we thought what better than what they are famous for - their cheese! A giant 3D block of cheese sits on its wrapper which also protrudes from the wall alongside the well-known stamp of the Barossa Cheese company. Next time you are down the Barossa way, be sure to drop in and say hi to Victoria and Frances and try some of their amazing cheese and wine or read a bit about the team and whats on offer on their website!
The Enokian Cold Rolls have just played and WON their first game of Bocce in the Life Be in it tournament! It was a great game against the SA health Health Hazards in Hindmarsh square in the city. The final score was seven to three scoring us two challenge points for the tournament. Lets see if we can stay on a winning streak next week!

This awesome furniture design online store also stocks the Cumulus floor lamp, Ben + Flo table, Bean stools and alphabet soup. They have also put together a great blog featuring exclusive offers on designer furniture and homewares. Definitely worth checking out!

We would like to say a very big WELCOME BACK to one of our Enokians Alex who has been off travelling around Europe for the last 3.5 months. We are very happy to have her back along with all the amazing inspiration she picked up along the way! Love the rest of the Enokians x
