elements2The highest international award for interior design was bestowed upon Elements of Byron resort last Friday when they won Best Hotel Design at the Society of British Interior Design International Design Awards. Entries were received from 43 countries and Elements of Byron was the only Australasian finalist selected by the technical panel of judges in this category. Resort owner Peggy Flannery and interior designer Rowena Cornwell attended the pre-ceremony function at the House of Lords followed by the Awards Ceremony at London’s Dorchester Hotel.

Peggy Flannery cited intense collaboration as contributing to the award and thanked Rowena Cornwell, artists including Noel Hart, Suvira McDonald and Jules Hunt and suppliers including Murwillumbah’s Quattro Design.

NSW minister for trade, tourism and major events Stuart Ayres congratulated Elements of Byron on winning the prestigious international award for Best Hotel Design. ‘The north coast and northern rivers continue to lead the state for visitor nights and visitor expenditure and it’s easy to see why with accommodation options like Elements of Byron redefining the Australian beach holiday’, said Mr Ayres.

‘The modern Australian beach architecture and unique natural surroundings of this exceptional Byron Bay property are highly deserving and will no doubt generate further international attention’.
