"Thank you for creating the home of our dreams!
Kudos to the dedicated D’ Marvel Scale team! The past two months had been intense, but your hard work has certainly paid off. Our humble abode has turned out even better than what we envisioned it to be, and has been receiving numerous compliments from our friends and relatives.
We appreciate your consultative approach, ie. taking effort to understand our lifestyle needs and incorporating relevant elements in your design. Despite the small area of our apartment, we have successfully incorporated space-maximizing ideas. We love the “minimalistic, yet functional” outcome!
Also, your ability to deliver within a tight timeline has impressed us. Such reliability is a rare asset in the industry! Thank you for highlighting issues to us promptly, along with suggestions to resolve them. Your project management skills had facilitated the smooth progress of our renovation.
We would definitely recommend D’ Marvel Scale!
Looking forward to seeing more masterpieces!"

The D'Marvel Scale Team have been detailed, patient and dedicated to all our design and renovation needs. Due to our tight schedule, they even finished almost two weeks ahead of the deadline. Would highly recommend them for all design and renovation works. Thanks guys for the great job done at my new place!
- Kim, home owner
Thank you for finishing the project ahead of schedule. We were really impressed!
We will definitely refer you to our friends.
Wishing you all a great year in 2016!

From first visit to our old abode to understand what we want, to the handover, Derrick and his team had been very accommodative, meticulous, on time and professional.
Han Rong is very patience with our many changes and provide close follow up. Kumar solved many of our last minute headaches. We received progress photos from Han Rong constantly without asking, and saved us many trips of coordinating with other vendors and deliveries too. Many thanks to Derrick for spending time with us looking for furniture, furnishing, lighting etc to go with the design.With our busy schedules and demand, we can't imagine what will happen without a committed team from D'Marvel Scale.
A big THANK YOU team D'Marvel Scale from the bottom of our hearts!
- The Wongs, home owners
Derrick and Hanrong of D' Marvel Scale have provided us excellent service at all points, from the conceptualisation of the design, to the renovations itself, and even beyond the taking over of the flat. From the beginning, they were able to provide a design which suited our tastes and preferences for interior décor – classy but functional – and were able to advise on all details ranging from colours to placement of electrical points. They were extremely receptive to feedback, dealing with our unusual requests (eg having no television and sofa, allowing the living room to be dominated by a bookcase and doubling up as a study room etc) and providing options when we were unsure of how to proceed. They conducted regular meetings with us and were willing to redraw both the plans and the 3D designs to accommodate our latest changes and requests. They also took time out to bring us shopping for lighting, kitchen and bathroom fixtures.
When the renovation started, Derrick and Hanrong worked closely with us to ensure that all the details were looked into, providing frequent site updates and consulting us on various details. At one point, they were even willing to redo an entire tiled wall when the design was not pleasing to us. They were responsive to our frequent enquiries via Whatsapp and provided useful information about dimensions and suitability of the furniture and appliance purchases we were making. They also helped coordinate the delivery of the appliances, the turning on of gas, electricity and water supply, and even worked with the contractors doing the Home Improvement Programme (HIP) upgrading of the HDB flat. The quality of work turned out to be excellent, and our 20+ year old flat looked good as new.
After the completion of the renovation and the handover, Derrick and Hanrong remained responsive to our queries.
Derrick and Hanrong at D' Marvel Scale have made the difficult, complex and tiring project of home renovation and interior design a painless, enjoyable and memorable one. They are highly recommended for the quality of their work and the excellence of their service.

It was a pleasure having Derrick Lim and D’Marvel Scale work on my old family
home. He had previously renovated our five-room HDB flat and my wife and I
were very pleased with the outcome so naturally we asked Derrick to help us
bring an old walk-up apartment from the 1960s to the 21 st century.
We appreciate his team’s hard work and were very impressed with the outcome.
It was quite a tremendous task as the apartment has not been worked on or
renovated since the 1970s. Most of the original furnishings had to be removed
and the electrical wiring had to be reworked. But he and his team managed to retain the retro or vintage look by using some of the original fixtures such as the
window grills and gate as wall ornaments.
The result was a wonderful modern apartment with a personal and retro touch.
We have great confidence in D’Marvel Scale and would offer our recommendation without reservation.
- Melvin Yong, Home owner
"We approached D'Marvel Scale in July 2014 to renovate our apartment in time for us to move in by end August 2014. Despite an extremely tight deadline, D'Marvel Scale managed to complete the renovations on time. The results were awesome - we are extremely happy with the thoughtful solutions that the team came up with and the quality of the workmanship. They pay great attention to detail and would always follow-up promptly on any queries or requests that we may have during the project and after its completion. Every step of the project - from the initial consultation to the handover after project completion - was handled well by the team of professionals.
We found D'Marvel Scale to be most reliable, responsive and trustworthy. They are truly a rare gem in the industry and working with them was a dream. We would not hesitate to recommend them to our friends and family!"

"We are pleased with your professionalism on all aspects of the renovations. We were also satisfied with the costs quotations as we found it reasonable and well within budget.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank D'Marvel Scale team for their efforts.
We hope that you will continue to keep up the good work and strive for further service excellence so that we can continue recommending your company to our clients, friends and family.
- Mr Aw, Cheer Way Properties
Thanks for the wonderful photos.
Likewise, to this day, we feel that we have had worked with a gem in the ID industry. It's had been wonderful journey with Wow ! along the way. Your eyes to details, coupled with a strong project manager makes this worked journey worthwhile.
Like you say, every home is a piece of art, and we couldn't agree more. You have made every homeowner proud of the end-product at the end of the journey with you and your team.
Your concept and model of having as close to 100% of the detailed on paper has derived fantastic results with minimal intervention between both parties.
If we were to have decided again for an ID, we believe, without doubt, that it would still be you and company. Thus, we would strongly recommend friends who would be keen on getting a beautiful home set up.
Thanks again, and God Bless!
Roy and Elaine Kwang
I used to grumble about contractors for not meeting my expectations. D’ Marvel Scale is an exception. Hassle-free and accountable. Ingenius design and quality of workmanship. If you wish to reverse your fate and have an excellent experience to see through a renovation of a commercial property, do consider D’ Marvel Scale. I certainly had no regrets.
- Samuel, Principal & Director of Curriculum Studies / IP English & General Paper lecturer, Indigo Group
Renovation works at my place was a breeze with D' Marvel Scale ... from suggestion of ideas to actual works to follow up.
Derrick's design is practical yet nice. Derrick is very very meticulous in his design, takes into account every aspect of aesthetics and practicality ... almost obsessed to perfection on alignment, space utilisation, lighting, colour coordination, etc, etc ... (pleasantly surprised and impressed that even the colour of a small base for washing machine is... matched nicely!).
During work period, detailed photos were taken and sent to us promptly ... works were always on schedule as planned. Hence, we did not and never felt the need to visit our place during that period (that's what I meant by "a breeze").
Response time was commendable ... the team responded to every call and message almost immediately. And every comment and request we made were remembered in detail and put into the works.
5 stars and thumbs up for the team - Derrick, Wilson and Kumar.
- Mdm Chong, Home owner
We are writing a short note to tell you how much pleasure we are experiencing in our home and also to thank you for making such a significant contribution to that pleasure. Before we got to know your company, my wife had sourced for other reputable ID Companies and your Company has never crossed our mind that we will have a working relationship as Interior Designer cum Project Management. Thinking back, we think it was one of the wisest decisions to have involved you as our Lead Interior Designer in the building of our new home from the very beginning of the planning stages. Your ideas, great taste, ad attention to details turned our house into a warm, well-appointed and functional place to live in. The project team exhibited a knowledge of materials and space and architecture that was very important for our thought process about how the space would ultimately feel to us. We appreciate the fact that you spent so much time on the details of our requirement for condo-live I unit concept and more storage space with practical and easy access functions.
We also appreciate your attitude toward our decision to use linear patterned tiles in the living room corridor area despite your advice for a mosaic patterned concept. You respected decision we felt strongly about just as we respected your ideas and choices. When we had problems with the “living room tiles finish”, shower enclosure with concealed sanitary and water pipework and common bathroom door position, you worked very hard to solve the difficulty ad we felt a very strong
commitment on your part to satisfy us. You enjoyed challenges and saw the project through all its phases. You have magically transformed our public apartment and we can’t imagine anyone having a better experience than we have had with you and your team.

"With reference to your interior fitting out of my unit at The Waterina - works of which involved raised platform in master bedroom, sliding glazed door with side glass panel to the kitchen, shelved cupboards in living room, hangers cum shelves in the household shelter and interior painting to walls, I found its end result is good and satisfactory.
The team at D'Marvel Scale have been accommodating during the process of the interior works and have also exercised due care and diligence for the whole works.
I would recommend your company for any other similar interior works."
- Hazel. T, home owner
"Thank you D'Marvel Scale Team for managing my apartment design and renovation. My family is pleased with the results and relatives who have visited my place have nothing but compliments for the concept and workmanship.
It has been a fast paced project from when I first contacted you on 25 Mar 2014. The Planning and detail discussion process were very useful and enabled us to develop some creative design solutions together. The fact that we were able to complete on schedule is quite an achievement, considering that I’m based oversea and we work in different times zones."
- Eric, home owner
Spa Foods is delighted to have D'Marvel Scale conceptualise its flagship stall at Takashimaya Singapore B2 Foodhall.
They understood our needs and cleverly maximised a small space to facilitate retail sales whilst retaining a lovely store front. Despite very tight timelines and strict guidelines, the team professionally delivered our project in good time with good finishes.
- Lynette Loh, Director - Spa Foods
6years ago my hubby and I chanced upon Derrick's ID company when we wanted to design our matrimonial home. We wanted modern luxury as the theme just for the 2 of us. Derrick's proposal and his professionalism blew us away even on the first few meetings. Our house was eventually featured in Home & Decor Designer Showcase 2011. The quality was excellent and carpentry remains good even until today.
In 2015 we went back to Derrick to have our new condo designed. This time we already have 2 kids, and asked for a modern tropical theme that is kid's friendly. He & his team nailed it (again)! Their professionalism, dedication, attention to details and patience were everything we asked for to create our dream home.
A big THANK you to Derrick, Kumar and his team not just for the pleasant design & reno experience, but also for the friendship & after sales service throughout the years. U guys made Kelvin & I look forward to designing and moving to another new house again (if we can afford! Haha )
- Kelvin & WanQing, home owners
It was a wonderful experience for us working with the team from D' Marvel Scale. The professionalism exhibited is par excellence and made the renovation process an easy and fun experience for as well.
Their design and remodeling work has drawn praises from friends and relatives and the team has managed to work-in our needs really well. Thanks a lot for the wonderful job done at our place.
- Aloysius & Elsie, home owners
First and foremost, we must thank Derrick and his team for transforming our 'retirement' home to a 'Villa', not forgetting also our friend, Roy Kwang & his wife Elaine for recommending us to them.
From the day we engaged them with the designing up to the completion of the renovation, it was a wonderful and stress less experience for me and my wife. They have shown professionalism, and also a responsible, efficient and trustworthy ID in managing the project.
Due to the unusual 4.7m high ceiling, we were very pleased with the Loft and stairways of the Master bedroom which was meticulously designed to suit our 'age' and yet optimizing the space we have.
We felt like staying in a Resort Villa and our friends and relatives shared the same sentiment.
Derrick, we were a bit apprehensive initially about the design and color scheme for our son's bed room. However it proved to be uncalled for. You were able to understand our young man's requirements and the concept and ideas for his bed room was very well thought. When asked for some of his feedbacks, my son's answer was 'Refer to Derrick'. That showed how much trust and confidence he had in you.
We must also congratulate you for having Wilson who did very well on the project management at site. I had a total peace of mind even when I was out-stationed for 3 weeks as there were no hiccup and the renovation work went accordingly as planned during my absence.
Wilson was always at site and he would sent me photos at every renovation phase to update us the status of the work that's carried out. Any clarifications required were also made promptly.
Once again thank you, Derrick for making such a difference to our new home at Watertown.
We will not hesitate to recommend you for any Interior Design and Renovation work.
All the best to you and your team.
