“To get the proportion “right” for every project and make people’s everyday life better.”
6years ago my hubby and I chanced upon Derrick when we wanted to design our matrimonial home. We wanted modern luxury as the theme just for the 2 of us. Derrick’s proposal and his professionalism blew us away even on the first few meetings. Our house was eventually featured in Home & Decor Designer Showcase 2011. The quality was excellent and carpentry remains good even until today.
In 2015 we went back to Derrick to have our new condo designed. This time we already have 2 kids and asked for a modern tropical theme that is kid’s friendly. He & his team nailed it (again)! Their professionalism, dedication, attention to detail and patience were everything we asked for to create our dream home.
A big THANK you to Derrick and his team not just for the pleasant design & reno experience, but also for the friendship & after-sales service throughout the years. U guys made Kelvin & I look forward to designing and moving to another new house again (if we can afford! Haha )
Renovation works at my place was a breeze with Derrick… from the suggestion of ideas to actual works to follow up.
Derrick’s design is practical yet nice. Derrick is very, very meticulous in his design, takes into account every aspect of aesthetics and practicality … almost obsessed to perfection on alignment, space utilisation, lighting, colour coordination, etc, etc … (pleasantly surprised and impressed that even the colour of a small base for the washing machine is… matched nicely!).
During the work period, detailed photos were taken and sent to us promptly … works were always on schedule as planned. Hence, we did not and never felt the need to visit our place during that period (that’s what I meant by “a breeze”).
Response time was commendable … the team responded to every call and message almost immediately. And every comment and request we made was remembered in detail and put into the works.
5 stars and thumbs up
We decided to go with Derrick as his design philosophy & style endear most to our hearts as well as very positive feedback from our friend who has engaged him before.
The project was challenging with numerous unexpected events but Derrick and his wonderful and experienced team demonstrated full commitment and delivered the perfect home that he has earlier conceptualized and envisaged.
As such we would like to express our heartfelt thanks to Derrick. The highly responsible team and their sincerity to “treat every project as their own house” etched a deep impression in us, and we will not hesitate to refer Derrick and his team to our friends to create their dream homes.
It was a pleasure having Derrick Lim work on my old family home. He had previously renovated our five-room HDB flat and my wife and I were very pleased with the outcome so naturally, we asked Derrick to help us bring an old walk-up apartment from the 1960s to the 21 st century.
We appreciate his team’s hard work and were very impressed with the outcome. It was quite a tremendous task as the apartment has not been worked on or renovated since the 1970s. Most of the original furnishings had to be removed and the electrical wiring had to be reworked. But he and his team managed to retain the retro or vintage look by using some of the original fixtures such as the window grills and gate as wall ornaments.
The result was a wonderful modern apartment with a personal and retro touch. We have great confidence in Derrick and would offer our recommendation without reservation.
