I just realized today that this year marks my tenth year in the interior design line! And 2012 also marks the 8th year anniversary of KNQ Associates. How time flies by when you're having fun!
I have been very interested in interior design since my college days, even though I opted for a different university course eventually. By some chance encounter - and great luck, I suppose - I landed up in this industry, doing what I love most. And it's here that I met many friends, clients (who in turn became my friends), colleagues and of course, my current business partners Kusnin and Jwen.
One of my favorite projects during this period has got to be this condominium show flat project - these screen shots are grabbed from a local drama which used the unit as a set - which I undertook during my tenure in my previous company 10 long years ago. Sure, I can't call myself a matured designer back then, but this is the very first project which I, being someone without any formal training, was given the liberty to decide on the whole scheme, the furniture, the fittings and accessories to create the look I envisaged for the developer. Before that, I never knew shopping and dealing with numerous suppliers (not so good ones included) could actually be fun, ha!
When KUS and I first started our own business, things are not always smooth-sailing. But fortunately, those hard times are far and few between. We absolutely enjoyed ourselves with our Home Rejuvenation Programme, which we rolled out to help home owners recreate a new look for their current homes without having to move out or go through the stress of a typical renovation.
Lastly, I say a big thank you to all the clients (you know who you are) who have given us tremendous support throughout these years. Yes, keep those referrals coming - we appreciate your good words about us!
