“Kelly came highly recommended by my friend when I wanted to renovate my place and I definitely made the right decision of engaging her help. Right from the start, Kelly’s professionalism and easygoing personality warm up to me, she is attentive to my needs, understood my requirements and starting from conceptualization to finishing my place, the whole process was smooth sailing with the results I want. She has exquisite taste and was able to inject great and practical ideas into my project.
She also seeks a balance between cost and quality which I place a lot of importance into. Throughout the entire phase of the renovation, she was so assuring and responsible that I totally trusted her team to do their jobs that I need not worry nor need to visit to supervise the site! That was only made possible with the good and concise communication we constantly had with each other. I love how my place was done! Even after the renovation, Kelly is still very prompt in addressing my queries and help me whenever I need her assistance, and I totally appreciate that. Thank you Kelly for such a fuss free and wonderful experience!”
Hsu Wan, Owner, Singapore
“It was a pleasant experience with Kelly for our house at Gramercy Park Singapore. She guided us step by step and without fail, organized meeting to update design and site matters weekly via video call. She prepared all the furniture and furnishing research for us and when we arrived in SG, she patiently brought us around for the shopping, advising us on the choices which makes our selection very easy. We love our home like never before!”
