It is the writer who might catch the imagination of people, and plant a seed that will flower and come to fruition – Isaac Asimov
It is said often, good stories require good authors, but what defines a good author? Imagination, creativity, fluent storyline that makes sense and the ability to bring the audience into the story itself to feel like they belong, yet most of the people have overlooked the last one which at the same time can be the most essential element to be a good author.
We, the designers a.k.a Authors. We don’t just sit around & draw, we create an extraordinary story for every space.

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).

I came upon Authors’ portfolio while looking for interior designers on an app. I really liked their design style and was immediately set up for an appointment with Garrett. He was one of the main reason we decided to go with Authors as he was sincere and responsive throughout. He always answered our questions no matter how trivial and was honest when explaining to us the costing and renovation process. Even though we are first time homeowners, we were at ease during the process as Garrett was always there to attend to our needs.
In the end, the finished result was amazing, both in terms of the overall design and workmanship. They were also very responsive with the patching up of some minor defects after completion. We are very satisfied that we went with Authors and Garrett for our renovation. Good job and thank you Garrett and Authors, all the best!

We want to give a big shout out to our designer Jun for the fantastic job he did for us. It was a very positive experience working with him during the whole renovation process. From start to finish, he was very responsive in terms of communication and always kept us updated on the progress. We were also impressed with his creativity when it comes to design as he was able to find clever solutions to our needs. Ultimately, what really sets him apart for us compared to some of the other IDs we approached was his professionalism and sense of accountability. As with most renovations, there were some minor hiccups and Jun was always on hand to rectify and amend when needed and made sure that we were satisfied with the outcome. Jun is also very practical and suggested options for us to help save costs and keep to our budget limits. We really appreciate his advices as well as styling and furnishing recommendations. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed working with Jun and Authors and are very happy with the end result. We cannot recommend him enough for his work, thank you Jun!

We had a great time working with Garrett. With such a small sq ft in our house, he was the only designer among the couple we had identified that maximised the space so much in the proposal that we knew he was the right one for us. Throughout the process, he was patient and very accommodating to our requests and really made the house come together so nicely. While we have seen his bigger projects getting good reviews online, our house also shows that he can do well in modern smaller homes. We definitely recommend him and I am sure you would not have regrets engaging him. Overall a nice guy and well researched in this field of design!

During the design phase, Garret has been very patience in hearing our concern/feedback. He followed up very closely with the renovation progress and will update us promptly and reply fast to our questions. After sales service is good too. Thanks! Kuddos!
