My wife and I honestly cannot thank Tayllen enough for giving us our dream home. From start to end, we were in awe at Tayllen's work ethics and experience (she really knows her stuff). She is creative, honest and one of the most hardworking persons we have ever met. When we first met Tayllen, we briefly described the theme that we wanted and gave her the space to create something for us. Despite us not articulating the theme as well as we would like, Tayllen immediately understood what we wanted and drew up a mood board that got us really excited. It was what we wanted and more! She then came up with very professional 3D drawings that were down to most minute of details (measurements, lights, electrical points, potential furniture) and looked realistic (it could be mistaken for a photo!). Everything was accurate, which later led to a very smooth execution. After the reno, we chanced upon some 3D drawings done by others and were horrified. We were even more thankful for Tayllen after. The process of engaging her firm was also very smooth. All costs were stated up front wherever possible. Payment schedules were properly drawn up and administratively, everything was very smooth. We did not have to pay for what we didn't want and there were no "unexpected" mishaps or unforeseen additional costs imposed on us. Then came the execution of the renovation. Tayllen made frequent trips to our house to ensure all works are done properly and supervising the electrician, carpenters and painters. She kept us updated and even gives happy surprises :) She has a keen eye for defects and flaws so she knows what needs to be fixed. Tayllen also never seems to stop working. When we have questions about the reno or furniture, she always replies at the quickest time possible even on weekends. She was always there when we needed her and we cannot thank her enough for her help. Due to COVID-19, our project had to stop midway because of the circuit breaker. Tayllen and her team also lost a number of key resources because of country restrictions and supply chain disruptions. But no matter what was thrown at her team, they managed to find solutions to every problem which eventually led to the resumption of our project as soon as BCA provided the approvals. We would also highlight that Tayllen was prompt in submitting the necessary paperwork to BCA for the resumption of our renovation works and coordinated the same with the various teams (electrician, carpenters, painters, haulage, cleaners). Due to Tayllen's excellent project management with the various teams, we obtained our BCA approval rather quickly and our project completed within 1 month after we obtained the approval. Working with Tayllen was honestly one of the best decisions we made. It was an enjoyable and fuss free experience, and very worth the money spent. If you want a trustworthy ID, we can definitely say Authors especially Tayllen is the one you should engage (if you can wait for your turn on her waiting list).

We had the good fortune of having Elaine as our ID for our house. We could say many good things about her, such as her patience, her eye for detail and her aesthetic sense, her trouble-shooting amid the restrictions of Covid-19, and her prompt responses whenever we needed something changed or done. But one thing that really stood out for us was how she was dedicated to making sure everything was done right. We had some lights installed, and due to a slight miscommunication, the contractors installed three large, single, switches in a row into our bedroom. They had already re-done it once because they didn't quite work properly, and my wife and I were OK with just leaving them, even though they didn't look that great. But Elaine would have none of it, even though we told her she could leave it. She took one look at the wall and said "No, I can't take how this looks." Then she got the contractors to come back and fix it one more time. So if you are fortunate enough to get Elaine on your project, know that your house is in the good hands of a competent and diligent ID.

Had a great experience with Garrett, he is a great ambassador of Authors. He took the time to listen to my ideas, asked me probing questions in order to narrow it down to the style I wanted. Mood boards were employed. Initially I was going more for a scandi minimalist design, but then I had a change of heart when i realised a monotone theme suited me more - he took it all in his stride and managed to turnaround the 3d render. Garrett was really helpful in offering tips and tricks like not to go for a full matte laminate for cupboards because it will make the space look too dark. He also kindly accompanied me to select tiles, lights and bathroom fittings. He was also always on hand and super responsive over calls/texts when I had ideas to run by him. Perhaps a tiny disappointment would be a slight delay in the reno duration, part of which was down to manpower and supplies issues during covid. He does his best at everything, I'd definitely recommend him/Authors for anyone out there looking for a professional to design their home.

I had my renovation done with Jun. We were first time home owners, clueless about everything and anything. Jun made the renovation process a breeze, he tried to understand our needs and openly shared his ideas with us. He was honest with his suggestions and strong attention to details, which was one of the main reasons why we went with Authors. Jun had very creative ideas for our house and was able to grasp our concept well. He helped to arrange for all the deliveries and liaised with vendors for installations. Making it a breeze for me and my husband while we are both busy at work. We trusted him completely and felt assured that we have him around to settle all these arrangements. Jun went out of his way to helped us and even came down to assist us with assembling our ikea furnitures. Without Jun’s help, I think my poor husband will take three days instead of three hours to assemble it all! We have been living in our new home for close to a month and there is no place I rather be at! Thanks Jun and Authors for giving us such a lovely home to return to everyday!
