OUR PROCESS

How we do it

LISTENING

Key to the success of any project is ensuring that the interiors are an authentic reflection of our client’s requirements and aspirations. During the brief stage, we take the time to learn about how the client wishes to use the property, their personal style, lifestyle and aspirations. We will build a picture of the project through a site visit or floor plans and photographs as well as ensure that we understand all factors such as time scale, budget, and any structural or administrative requirements. Following this thorough briefing stage, we will send a proposal to the client, outlining the brief as we understand it, with an estimated budget for our associated design and renovations fee.

Planning &
3d RENDERING

Interpreting the detailed brief, we will present the concept designs, consisting of 3D designs and floor plans illustrating the proposed furniture layouts and any structural changes that may be required, and mood board presentations containing samples of proposed finishes as well as imagery of suggested furniture and joinery concepts. This is a very collaborative stage and we invite our clients to give as much feedback as possible to ensure we are on the right page.

MATERIAL
SELECTION

Having approved all of the concept designs, we progress to the design development and detail design stage. All final bespoke furniture, joinery and interior design drawings will be presented, along with all final finishes and curated art accessories for clients to approve. At this stage we will also present a fully itemised breakdown of costs in line with the agreed budget.

fABRICATION &
RENOVATION

Above and beyond designing and renovating the homes of our clients, we provide an interior styling service where we add in the finishing touches to their homes. In this stage, our designers bring our clients all around Singapore and even online to source out furniture, cushions, unique handles and decorations that will suit their new homes. This adds greatly to the design of the home as it gives the welcoming atmosphere our clients love. This is a service that can be engaged without the first 4 stages, for clients who are either renting an apartment or have already renovated their homes previously but would require a remodeling and space management.

Completion

At the final stage of our process is completion, where you will discover it's where we build your story into your home and you are ready to view the transformation it has taken based on the very first step when you shared your vision and requirements with us.

OUR DESIGN STORIES

What we did

Minimalist

An entrepreneur in his 30s "Alan" wanted to create the ideal minimalist home to suit his lifestyle, by creating a clutter-free yet functional home away from his busy schedules.

We accomplished this by installing a white glossy flooring from inside to out to provide a minimalistic feel, and by keeping the [furniture minimal colors]. A stunning dark backdrop is a great contrast to the white flooring, providing an accent that catches the eye immediately upon entering the house.

All cabinetry, including the walk-in cabinet, is made at our in-house facility in Singapore.

Scandinavian-MUJI

A young family wanted to create a Scandinavian-MUJI home to suit their preference in having a calming and neutral energy around.

With the beautiful wooden flooring extending throughout the home, its simplicity, charm and laid-back ‘hygge’-ness is immediately pleasing to the eyes and mind.

The Design Story team first proposed a soothing colour palette, filled with plenty of neutral, muted tones. This is complemented by the use of light wood textures. As this is a new family unit, the team also included a lot of storage solutions to help the growing family with their storage needs.

Dear Design Story,

After seeing many ID firms some of which were referred to by friends, we had almost decided on one when we met Frank Lim. Subsequently when we visited their showroom cum factory, we were impressed by the way the designs are communicated and resolved in real-time and that gave us a confident boast that the carpentry are not out-sourced hence, there will be quality controlled.

We wish to thank your company for the practicality and aesthetically pleasing designs and the lead times for planning and implementation was very short as well but they still delivered on time. Their follow-up after sales service is very prompt as well when we needed some adjustments for our shelving and door which they attended to immediately.

We are happy that we selected your company to do our home renovation and would gladly recommend to our friends as well. Thank you once again for the great work!

Yours Sincerely,
Mr & Mrs Lim, Forestville
To Management of Design Story,

I am writing to express my appreciation and special thanks to Frank Lim, Principal Designer of Design Story Pte Ltd. He was the interior designer for my Condo at Punggol which was completed not only on a tight schedule given to him and the quality of works are not compromise as well.

In fact, before I met Frank to get more options and designs for my new house, I had already sign up a package with another ID firm but I changed my mind after meeting him and I was even willing to forgo my desposit with the other firm.

Throughout the discussions and meetings, Frank demonstrated his knowledge and his ability to conceptualize ideas that alighn to what I had in mind. And when the work commence, he was always quick to response to my queries on the renovation and handed well to my hard-to-please attitude and meticulous behaviour. I was also impressed with his efficiency and the way he handed rectification works after completion which suits my convenient timing.

I have no qualms to refer him to my corporate and social circle. Once again, I would like to thank Frank Lim and Design Story for the job well done to my new home.

Yours Sincerely,
Claire Teo, Trellis Tower
Although Design Story came highly recommended, I still decided to research other designers. After meeting some others and obtaining quotes, I knew Design Story was the best fit. Even though his quotation was not the cheapest, I felt comfortable with Frank’s knowledge and suggestions and the final outcome has been nothing but compliments and I will not hesitate to refer Design Story to my family, relatives and friends.

To the management of Design Story

I would like to extend my appreciation to my ID Mr Frank Lim for his prompt follow up, design and management of the renovation work for my apartment in Dakota that was completed in April 2017

I remembered during our first meeting, Frank was being informed by me of the tight timeline that I have to complete the renovation for the apartment.

A seasoned ID, he worked out the timeline required for the renovation works and accepted the job confidently which none of the other ID are willing to give me the promise for the handover date.

During the renovation, he has provided very practical advices and amended some of the ideas that I have set out initially so that the layout of the house will be more practical for my daily use.

I am very pleased especially when the job was completed and the apartment was handover to me a few days before the deadline was set with no variation required.

After sales service was excellent with prompt response when I seek his assistance after the renovation was completed

In fact, I have recommended him to my circle of friends but I believed his professional service deserved to be noted.

Thank you!
Jasmine Tan, Dakota Crescent
