Coming from an architectural background and being exposed to a range of different design scales from master planning to furniture design, interior design is the only area that strikes a chord with me as this is most intimate level of human interaction where each space is crafted to an individual's needs. Interior design should be timeless and comfortable, creating a place where you can express your innermost self instead of an endless pursuit of popular design themes.
A good interior design encompasses systematic steps. It first starts with the planning phase, coming up with a personalised concept based on an understanding of your lifestyle and needs. This first stoke of brush is critical because it conceives the soul to your space. This is followed by detailing, with the selection of material palettes to add texture and richness to the design. The final phase is styling, projecting the finishing touch with your choice of furnishings to the entire interior.
Hope to embark with you on the journey to crafting your dream interior. I am available for both in-person and online consultations.
“A BIG thank you to Dreammetal for transforming our dated house into a contemporary dream home. The impressive design from the inside out truly captured who we are and how far we have come. It is indeed a blessing to be able to work with Raymond whom we have engaged as the architect and interior designer for this A&A project. From the conceptual design planning to the selection of materials, he has demonstrated his professionalism, great sense of aesthetics and meticulous attention to details. What really impressed us was also his patience, responsiveness and extra miles services. During the renovations, many challenges surfaced because of site issues and constrains, he was able to provide us with valid and timely solutions. Even at this post renovation stage, he is still willing to assist us in minor queries. Once again our heartfelt thanks to Raymond for what he has done for us throughout the project. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for value for money in creative design and quality services.”
-Melinda Kuang, Bloxhome Drive
"Thank you for the services rendered in interior design for my home at St Patrick's Residences.
This is my 3rd renovation, and thus I had a pretty good expectation of what i would be getting from IDs. But certainly, the both of you have gone beyond what was even my basic expectations. Things like changing my lights for me at the suppliers when they don't fit, going all out to choose special mosaic for my wall and going to different shops to get specific grouting to bring out the mosaic. It really made a difference to my home because all these minor details are what makes the interior design pop!
Overall, I would certainly employ your services once again for my future home and that is possibly the best testimonial one can give. In my opinion, there are many choices of IDs out there, but to find someone reliable, dependable and committed to deliver as promised is really difficult. So for that, kudos to you and hope Dreammetal continues to fluorish!"
-- Jonathan Tan, St. Patrick's Residences
"What attracted me to engage Dreammetal is their clear demonstration of experience and ability to create more usable space incorporating class. Being independent from the contractor, Dreammetal possesses strong communication skills, amiable and professional work ethics which are critical factors of a successful project delivery with the contractor.
I've gone through a few renovation projects for my homes and Dreammetal had the best attention to details, strong design acumen and punctuality to the dot. I almost always overrule designs from my previous designers but surprisingly with Dreammetal that was not a necessary process, for those few I'm glad they were able to persuade me to stick with it or I would have certainly regretted not doing so.
No prize for guessing I'm engaging them to design my next renovation. Thanks Raymond and Cheryl."
-- David Pek, Sin Ming Plaza
"Dreammetal transformed our drab apartment to a totally fab place for our family of 4. I was especially impressed with their professionalism and they delivered on their promises in style and on time. They were mindful of our requirements and our budget contraints and presented us with a design plan that was stylish and chic yet practical. We would absolutely love to work with them again and would wholeheartedly recommend them to our circle of friends."
-- Aley, Flora Drive
"Thanks for an amazing journey and being professional in understanding our needs and wants. Your drawings and informal sketches helped to solve little problems and even helping us to choose tiles, lights and fabric. We are happy with our new home, brighter, spacious, functional and beautiful. Most of all we are happy with our stunning bathrooms and Jessica's harp studio. We have more than enough space for our luggage and barang barang and our kitchen works. Our first experience with wallpaper is also positive and thanks for even advising on sofa colors and picture framing. Thanks so much."
-- Karen, Summerhill
"Hi Raymond, I know this is a little late. I would like to say that I am extremely pleased with your work on Riveredge. Everyday I am at home admiring the designs that you did for me. I will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone in my extended family who may need your services.Thank you for a job well done!"
