I offer customised home styling and room makeover services to clients in Singapore and E-design services to clients in the UK. Whether you're looking to refresh a space in your home, repurpose a room, or redesign your entire home, I can help. Every project is unique and depending on your specific requirements I structure an optimal mix of services for you.
This is what I get asked to do most often. Clients approach me because a room in their home has started feeling dated or just doesn't work for their current needs. Based on detailed discussions I work up mood boards to help my clients visualise how their space can be transformed with a new colour palette, furniture or accessories. I pay particular attention to ensuring a final room design that is both aesthetic and practical.
Designing homes isn't only about creating Pinterest-worthy spaces. First and foremost it is about figuring out how you and your family live and defining the best use of your space. A well-purposed room is one with the right pieces in the right proportion to the activities the room is used for. I use both 2D and 3D tools to help you define the best layouts for your space to ensure it goes well beyond just looking beautiful.
Inventive sourcing ensures that your home looks different from anyone else's and yet does not cost the earth. This requires the right balance between bespoke and off the shelf. Sometimes a vintage piece can add just the touch of glamour or quirkiness a space needs. Or a bit of clever DIY can give you a feature unique to your home. I aim to source the right pieces at the right price to fit sensible budgets.
My styling skills are what set me apart from other designers. When I see a space I can visualise what elements can add a little gold dust to take it from nice to extraordinary. Be it an asymmetrical arrangement of art, statement lighting, quirky mixing of styles in furniture, or an unexpected use of colour and pattern. It is consistently what draws people to my instagram account or gets people commenting on my home or those of my clients.
How I work
Every project kicks off with a free consultation of between 30-60 minutes, usually on the phone or on Zoom. I use this time to understand what you need help with and what you would like to achieve for your space. I would ask clients to send me photos of their home in advance of this consultation. Based on this I will come back with a design proposal including a project plan broken down into modules of time needed for space planning, design, sourcing and styling. Projects can be a single room makeover, usually 8-12 hours, or an extensive home revamp running into 70-80 hours.
I charge an hourly design fee of SGD100 or £60/hr depending on location.
