When we first purchased a new house, a main consideration was whether to work with an interior designer or not. The main reason was the budget. After researching and interviewing various interior designers and we finally found Alan Choong and Yenney of Redland Design. They understood our needs and made us comfortable enough that we trusted them to take upon the task while we are in another state due to MCO. Alan and his team has excellent taste and resources. He knows where to find the right products and materials. And what more, he even travelled all the way from Ipoh to Perlis, just to let us compare the colour and materials he found for the cabinet door. The subcontractors he works with are professional too. Unfortunately, due to travel restriction for the past few months, only the kitchen is fully renovated. They also did a great job for the master bedroom, dining area and the living room. Can’t wait to show you all once it is completely done. Alan is a truly gifted interior designer who has helped us realize our aspirations and has exceeded all of our expectations while at the same time helping us stay on budget. We truly could not have accomplished this without Alan’s help. Overall we are extremely pleased with the service and expertise provided. Thank you Alan, Yenney, and Redland Design.

I had an amazing experience working with Issac, Elaine, Justin and their team in designing the spaces in our new home. They took the time to really listen to our ideas and talk to us about our vision for our new home. They also took into consideration our lifestyle needs, personalities and budget in their design. What I liked best about the design was that it was both practical and homey without compromising on the aesthetics of our new home. I was very happy with how they consulted us at each step of the construction to see how we would like the details executed. The results were beyond our imagination and the I am well satisfied with the quality of the finished home. They went the extra mile to deliver on time during the very difficult conditions under MCO. I would definitely recommend their services to friends and family in the future.

Great communication with detailed service. Never run away from question and problems. Over the MCO period, team has fulfilled their abilities to give us the project competition on time with no doubt quality. Of course the service charge is well deserved. In the meanwhile, if can shorten the discussion period will be better. And maybe if we can find out more developer defect before we start the project, will be better for the cooperation experience. Overall, GI design is a great team, and we definitely will come back for them again.

Nick and his Pocket Square team are absolutely amazing and I am fully satisfied with their work for my new house. As an establish design and build contractor, PS knows what is best to their client and Nick as the company founder himself, play a very important part to ensure his team to complete this project according to timeline and at the same time, making sure that workmanship is up to the standard. When I hired Nick to be my Interior Designer, Nick took some of my design inputs and with his expertise, he materialised it into reality of my dream house. I wont hesitate ro recommend PS to my friends and contacts that are looking for designer and builder for their homes.

Very satisfied with the renovation result. The design was thoroughly done and reviewed to ensure customer expectations are met. The ID listened and have no issue to tweak the design to ensure satisfaction. The job delivery went a bit beyond plan but within the limit (1 week beyond original plan). The finishing touch was exactly as seen on the 3D drawing. Will consider this ID again for any renovation work in the future.
