This streamlined service is a compaction of our standard interior styling work. Valued at S$900, 'Design in a Day' aims to offer quick and affordable styling that will optimise your space while bringing a clear design vision to your home. This service is best for those looking to refresh a targeted area of their home or to sample our services before committing to a full makeover.

The Design Process
We begin the process with a consultation where we understand the client's style and what they're looking after. This consult is done at the selected space to address important aspects of the makeover such as the functionality of the room and to view existing pieces we can work with. Similar to our standard service, our stylists will then develop a makeover plan incorporating functionality, aestheticism, existing furniture pieces, and spatial flow. Unlike our standard service however, stylists will only shop for furniture pieces and soft furnishings in our retail showrooms.

The client then comes into our showroom(s) to shop the look with our stylist before heading back for the installation. The entire process spans six hours and can be completed anywhere within 1 day to 3 days, depending on your convenience. Please note that the $900 does not include the prices of any products purchased for the makeover.
