Hi Lola,
nicely done, looks great! how i wish my house can look like this :) May I know what brand of paint u use for the living room and the color code? brownish color rite? :) tq.

Hi Maiz!

Great to know you appreciate my work. I like to use Nippon paints, not for any specific reasons except that the company and their dealers make our work so much more easier and fun! Nippon has a colour CD for designers to use and also gave me a list of the thousands of colours (most of the colours are not even on their colour chart in the shops) that they are able to produce - so far no other paint company offers us that much support in our work. This type of strong support makes our work FUN!

For this home, I used a combination of Classic Neutrals and Sparling Greens range, the basic colours of which are in their catalogue. Some colours are chosen from their colour chart displayed in Nippon dealer shops and some others are from a separate chart that dealers sometimes make available upon special request.

I should not reveal the exact paint codes as I'm sure my client wouldn't want everyone's house to look like his.

Hi, I like your design. How much you will charge if you ask you to just design it (drawing + print out only)?

At the moment I'm not taking any design commission work, because Meridian work is more than enough to keep me busy.

Just a friendly tip if you are engaging a freelancer... You must first of all identify your budget and materials to use. Otherwise the designer will design using materials that is outside of your budget. Also, the more complex the design, the more expensive the cost of renovation.
