Peace of mind. Any interior designer (ID) can tell you about colour theory, any ID can tell you about light theory, any ID can do scheduling and project management. However, Joanne was above and beyond that, she gives us peace of mind, which is what every client wants. In addition, she was such a joy to be around with. When we met Joanne, she was honest and upfront about the realities of renovation and did not try to smoke us like other IDs. If you are looking for IDs who will promise you the sky for the price of peanut, you will not find it in Joanne; (because the IDs are probably cutting corners somewhere). She is realistic, practical, and wise with her many years of experience in this line. This was exceptionally evident when we observed the way she interacted with the lighting shops, toilet accessories shops, electricians, aircon people, painters and carpenters when they came to do their works. They interacted with her and each other with such good rapport because of Joanne. Our renovation began a few days before Circuit Breaker and resumed almost immediately the moment it was legal to do so. Joanne took care of all the paperwork, SafeEntry, liaising with MoM, BCA, Contractors, and even our neighbours. When our neighbours would be unreasonable during our renovation and complain to HDB, Joanne would fly down from wherever she was to speak to our neighbours and explain the situation to them. She made us feel special and went above and beyond what we expect a normal interior designer would do. In all our interactions, we know that Joanne has our interests in her heart. We highly recommend Joanne to anyone looking for quality work and peace of mind. However, if you are looking to squeeze an ID for Cheap, Fast, and Good, please look elsewhere. Joanne is not the cheapest in the market, but once you sign with her, you can trust that she follows through with what she promises. Joanne has moved from beginning our interior designer to an acquaintance and now a friend. We hope you will enjoy your renovation journey as much as we did with Joanne
TLDR: Ask for Joanne from Interior Lab for peace of mind. Pay for what you get. God bless.
