Icon Home Challenge Season 4 : Results & Fair Time!

2. I understand there are quite a number of you who are in the midst of looking for the ideal interior design or renovation company for your new house.

THINK ICON INTERIOR DESIGN.

Why?

I have been supporting them and promoting them for quite a while now, not just because they did my house nicely. Work etiquette, I really like them. I have seen how they work, and how they communicate with customers – they are passionate about what they do! And being passionate is something that you really need when you are an interior designer.

With Icon Interior Design’s team of fun, friendly and reliable of interior designers, you can be sure that there will be a fresh touch to your home.

And the one thing I truly love about Icon Interior Design is how truthful they are, especially where quotations are involved. No hidden costs or agenda, that’s for sure. Whatever you need to pay, they will tell you upfront.

Nowadays, homeowners have a strict budget that they need to work with for their house. Icon Interior Design understands this totally, and they will try their best to work around homeowners’ given budget instead of telling homeowners that everything is possible or “Everything also can do lar!”

HOW SO?

  1. They will ask homeowners the kind of concept or theme that they are looking at for their new house.
  2. They will ask homeowners for the budget they have set aside for their new house.
  3. They will come up with a detailed quotation for homeowners to consider.
  4. If the quotation given exceeds their budget, the ID will then discuss with the homeowners on the things that they can eliminate without compromising on the design of their house. Needs over wants, or wants over needs – they will leave it to the homeowners to decide.

 

In other words, if the budget is 20K, the IDs at Icon Interior Design will make sure that that budget is met at the end of the day, after a thorough discussion with the homeowners on certain things in the quotation that they can make do without.

It’s better this way, isn’t it?

BE REALISTIC.

Or as homeowners, would you rather the ID or contractor tell you that everything you want is possible, only to increase your budget slowly but surely during the renovation by adding on to the cost? So an initial budget of 20K might result in a 30K budget at the end of the renovation due to the add ons that were not disclosed during the quotation and first few discussions.

Makes sense?

ALL I AM SAYING IS, IT’S YOUR GAME ACTUALLY. 

Do not settle for a renovation that is unbelievably cheap or too good to be true because well, the reason is in this sentence itself – TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE.

NOW, I AM SURE YOU ARE RARING TO KNOW WHO IS THE WINNER FOR ICON HOME CHALLENGE SEASON 4!

Thank you everyone for the participation and votes. The final moments were pretty intense. In fact, they were so intense until I closed my eyes the moment I clicked END POLL.

To the other two finalists, I thank you too for your participation and please know that even though you did not clinch the top three spots, I was so much in love with your house the moment I set foot in it! And indeed, the truth is, you do not need a competition like this to determine how beautiful your house really is. What’s more important is how you have managed to turn it into a home for even more memories with your loved ones. That itself is a winner and beats anything else in the world.

Meanwhile, to the rest of you who are in the process of turning your house into a home, do consider Icon Interior Design and make yourselves free on 14 or 15 November 2015 because they will be having their biggest YEAR END FAIR!

Read my previous blog post (click HERE HERE HERE) for more details about the fair!

Otherwise, you can contact them for an appointment right away!

Bounce with me.

Yes, bounce.

(I will get to the bouncing part soon.)

But for now,

ich-3

I was ready to create a scene that day.

My day did not start off good. So it was only natural for me to be in a foul mood.

ich-4

See, 4 pm was my appointment with a bunch of guys, and I arrived at 4 pm sharp too. I was expecting some latecomers, truth be told. I was telling myself on my way there, “The latecomer will get one sinister remark from me!”

The moment I reached the venue, lo and behold!

I saw the rest of the guys already waiting for me at the entrance of the cafe.

ICH-5

I was (quietly) impressed lah.

I did not show it, obviously. Heh.

I detest people who chronically late because I am chronically early. Like, even If I know that I will be delayed by 5 minutes due to unavoidable reasons like bad hair day or eyeliner for right eye goes a different direction, I will inform the person waiting for me so that at least he/she knows that I am held up somewhere. Come on guys, that’s basic courtesy. I understand totally if you are busy because you have a very busy life. But if you are late for no apparent reason or late with reasons that you make up on the spot, then please let me know in future so that I can plan my events around you. No, I am not chastising you.

I guess these guys from Icon Interior Design know how I am like by now. So it is very hard for me to find fault with them most of the time because it is so obvious that they are very careful whenever I am involved and they know what exactly will tick me off all the time. I am treated like a fragile item. And mind you, one of them is the big boss, and he was there on time for the meeting yesterday!

 Once again, I have to thank my buddy Fauzi Anuar for the photos (except for Topaz!) and for agreeing to work with us despite the really short notice and super tight deadline.

The houses that we visited were indeed beautiful, but his photos (and great interior photography skills) will always add an extra umphhh to the houses, and make them strikingly beautiful!

Fauzi Anuar can be found HERE and HERE too! You can also view his other photography works (such as food photography) here. LOL.

 

Just to recap, here are the prizes that await the top three winners!

I will announce the results on November 10 2015!

VOTE WISELY.

You know what happens when you do not vote wisely, right?

Oh wait, before you vote, it is important to listen to the speech made by the finalists too, right?

(Lol this reminds me so much of GE2015)

Want to hear what the homeowners had to say? 

ICH-7

WAIT, WAIT!

Before I show you the video of each finalist, I need to add this very important disclaimer.

ich-8

And oh, nobody was drugged prior to the interview too.

BAHAHA!

Now, let us watch all the video interviews and get to know the wonderful homeowners even better.

FINALIST 1:

(They first met when they were working at Starbucks Coffee, you know?)

FINALIST 2:

(The homeowner offered us Ben & Jerry’s ice cream when we came!)

FINALIST 3:

(Want to know the best part? Nobody knows that they have moved house, so perhaps after reading this post, all their relatives and friends will know! LOL)

FINALIST 4:

(Their son is not scared of horror movies! Can you imagine it? During the photoshoot, they were all watching The Conjuring but their son was like checking his nails out instead. Apparently, he was just waiting for the scary part of the show.)

 

.

FINALIST 5:

(I swear their house looks really big for a BTO! I was really amazed by the size of their house!)

I would like to thank a new addition to the Icon Interior Design (behind the scenes) team, Zeenol! I remember looking for a videographer the other time for this project, and his ever so sweet girlfriend told me to check out Zeenol’s portfolio. I checked, I was awed, I PM-ed him, and the rest is history. Thank you for the dedication and patience, Zeenol! Thank you for also providing subtitles to all the videos! HAHA! You can check out Zeenol’s portfolio HERE! Oh yes, this guy can really sing, okayyyyy? Go check out all his song covers! My favourite will be this cover he did with his sweet girlfriend, Dania. Click HERE HERE HERE  to be mesmerized by this cute couple!

On a serious note, I would really like to thank the homeowners for their warm hospitality, the good food, and for agreeing to have themselves interviewed. I appreciate their spontaneity during the interview because I really wanted them to be themselves and say what they felt like saying. You guys were really amazing, so regardless of the results, MY BIG CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF YOU! Thank you so much for believing in me, my blog, and most importantly, ICON INTERIOR DESIGN! 

 

OKAY NOW, LET’S VOTE!

 

ich-15

 

This will be the third year I have been working together with Shafee and one year plus with Icon Interior Design.

Want me to explain why?

I just like how passionate these guys are about their work, and how truly humble they are despite their status. Whenever I have a discussion with them, it is hardly about “How much will we earn from the customer ah?” But more about “Let’s think of a nice and unique design, and reasonable renovation cost for this house.” They ALWAYS have the customers’ budget in mind. I like working with people with the right and positive attitude. Like, they know they are in the interior design line and their main job is to turn a house into a home. It’s not just about renovating a house fast just so that their commission will come in fast too.

For a start, I do not quite believe that customers are ALWAYS right. Now, I am a customer too but that does not mean that I can abuse my rights as one just because of that overrated saying, “Customers are always right.” What’s right is right regardless of who you are, and what’s wrong will always be wrong. That’s a fact. But these days, I see a lot of customers who like to abuse their rights and degrade the one at the receiving end just because they are PAYING.

The reason why some customers end up getting into a dispute with the renovation company they engage is because they quite often ask for the impossible. Like for instance, they do not want to proceed with the progressive payment just because they see a little glitch or defect and they will start making demands like, “I will not pay until you settle this defect.” But you do understand that it is not the same worker who is doing the entire renovations works for your house right? The ID will engage several contractors who are in charge of different sections or works i.e. tilers, plumbers, electricians, carpenters and more. So if you refuse to proceed with the progressive payment just because of a slight defect that is made by the tiler for instance, then the entire renovation works will have to stop. Meaning electrical works cannot carry on. Carpentry cannot go on. Painting cannot go on. One work needs to be completed before another work can start. Cannot do all at one time, one.

Did you know that?

Now, this is how almost ALL renovation firms work – you don’t continue with your payment, they cannot continue with their work too. Why? The workers would not want to come knowing that there will be a delay in their daily wage. I mean, who then is going to pay their workers? Who then will pay for the subsequent materials needed?

Now I am saying the above with reference to my personal experience. I had a very bad experience with one renovation company right before my wedding. The contractor was undeniably very rude from the moment renovation works started and did not want to continue with the renovation works because my dad did not want to pay the progressive payment. Why? Well, my perfectionist dad saw defects and did not like the workmanship. We even went to CASE. But we eventually had to pay the renovation company in order to get the renovation work completed because as explained by CASE, defects are usually attended to once the renovations works are completed. And in my case, I had a deadline. My wedding was just a week away! So if I really wanted to stick to being difficult, I would not gain anything from it either.

DISCLAIMER TIME BEFORE YOU START ASSUMING THAT I AM ONE SIDED.

Now, of course not ALL renovation companies are reliable and yes, there have been instances where the renovation companies went MISSING or did not complete the renovation works after payment was made. I have read about them. I am sure you have too.

THEY DO EXIST. 

Sorry to say but those renovation companies who like to go missing after the contract is signed are usually the ones who will promise the customers the cheapest quotation and basically, promise them the world.

WHY YOU WANT THE CHEAPEST WHEN YOU ARE NOT EVEN SURE OF THE COMPANY’S PROFILE OR THE QUALITY OF THE MATERIALS USED? 

If you want my advice, go for quality first but stick to something within your budget. Budget is of utmost importance. Quality can last you for as long as you are staying in the same house without much maintenance or repair work required.

Which will save you more money in the long run?

This is the reason why you need to engage a highly recommended renovation/interior design company. I recommend what, so if I recommend wrongly, you can always email me and feedback to me. I will find a way out for you, definitely. Everything can always be resolved in a nice manner. See, at least there is assurance on my part.

 Here’s the thing.

ICH-6

…and I am always at Downtown East E-Hub too, you know? LOL.

Besides, all the customers that come from my blog will be categorized as ETRANGLE CUSTOMERS. You know what that means? That means, “Must handle with extra care because they come from Diah and if we don’t get the job done properly, they will go to Diah. And if we make Diah angry, all hell breaks loose.”

BAHAHAHA.

That’s how special my readers are.

(And that’s how special I am too.)

LOL.

Icon Interior Design is very professional in the sense that should there be some defects that homeowners notice during the renovation, they prefer to let the renovation works carry on (to prevent delay in the timeline already provided) and they will rectify all defects at one go once the renovation work is done. That’s how they do it. So if homeowners keep delaying the entire process by refusing to pay the progressive payment for instance, is it reasonable for them to blame it solely on the interior design company if the deadline cannot be met?

Just think about it.

And at the end of the day, these guys from Icon Interior Design are my very good friends. These are the same people I hang out with. These are the ones I invite over for lunch. I have so much faith in them and their work. I know they will never disappoint me. Disappointing my readers is as good as disappointing me. You can ask the guys from Icon Interior Design, especially Shafee. I will get angry and demand an explanation from them regardless of who was at fault.

With that, I present to you…

ich-17

ich-14

Uhuh.

It is only fair. Icon Interior Design always design based on what homeowners want right? Something safe. Something that looks decent enough for the in-laws who will come to visit every now and then. Something that is not too over the top.

But how about we challenge these guys (and you too!) to come up with something that is out of the norm for your house design?

It can be a Frozen bedroom for your little girl, or a Captain America bedroom for your boy, or a Harry Potter study room, or a Victorian master bedroom, or a graffiti filled bathroom!

IT DOES NOT HAVE TO BE THE ENTIRE HOUSE!

Have a talk with your chosen ID from Icon Interior Design! It is possible to do something fun while sticking to your budget at the same time!

The house with the most Unique design will win a…

Grand Prize of $3000 (electrical appliances voucher) !

CONGRATULATIONS TO THE WINNERS FOR #ICONHOMEPROJECT SEASON 2!

 

Thank you so much for being such gracious hosts when I went over to visit you! Truly appreciate it. (:

 

I WANT TO VISIT MORE HOUSES.

But until when?

I do not know whether this will be good news or bad but the next season of #ICONHOMEPROJECT will also be the final season.

Yeah, final one. I mean, what were you expecting?

Twenty seasons of #IconHomeProject?

All good things must come to an end eventually.

ALL.

FINAL CHANCE TO PARTICIPATE!

 

For the final season, the following prizes await all of you who sign or have signed up with Icon Interior Design:

 

FIRST PRIZE:

SGD 2000 electrical appliances voucher

 

SECOND PRIZE:

SGD 1500 electrical appliances voucher

 

THIRD PRIZE:

SGD 1000 electrical appliances voucher

 

I would not mind winning 1st, 2nd or 3rd man in this case!

 

*praying hard my house would qualify for Season 3*

 

HOW TO QUALIFY?

 

SIGN UP WITH ICON INTERIOR DESIGN, OF COURSE.

 

What are the perks of signing up with Icon Interior Design?

 

You really want me to get down to business right now?

 

Okay let’s do it!

 

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………

 

SYAWAL RENOVATION FAIR. 

THAT’S RIGHT!

 

Icon Interior Design will be having their Syawal Renovation Fair with lots of green packets to give away this time round!

HARI RAYA, MAH?

syawal-2

 

NOT ENOUGH.

 

LET ME REVEAL THE TEN GREEN PACKETS YOU STAND TO RECEIVE WHEN YOU SIGN UP WITH THEM!

123-1

 

YES TEN!

(I managed to coerce the boss of Icon Interior Design into giving more this time round!)

DO NOT FORGET TO THANK ME ONCE YOU RECEIVE YOUR GREEN PACKETS, OKAY? 😀

 

GREEN PACKET #1: IN YOUR FACE!

Show Icon Interior Design the following photo of mine, give them a few seconds to roll their eyes in disgust, and then enjoy SGD100 OFF your total renovation cost.

( Seriously, is my face only worth $100 off? Damn.)

 syawal-4

 

Anyway.

SHOW THEM MY $100 FACE!

SHOW THEM!

SHOW THEM!

And only by showing my face above will you also get to enjoy the REMAINING NINE GREEN PACKETS.

 

GREEN PACKET #2: DIP IT LOW!

For every SGD10,000 sign up with Icon Interior Design, you will be entitled to a Lucky Dip in which you will DEFINITELY WIN A SGD50 VOUCHER/GIFT CARD FROM either:

 

  1. IKEA

 

  1. COURTS

 

  1. CAPITALAND

 

This also means that if your total sign up is worth $40,000, you will get to enjoy the Lucky Dip four times! Say, if your sign up is worth SGD38000, might as well round it off to $40,000 in order to get four of the $50 vouchers. I mean, you can always review and revise your contract once renovation commences. Just a tip, but please do not tell them I told you. LOL.

 

GREEN PACKET #3: TIME TO GET LUCKY!

If you sign up during the Syawal Renovation Fair AND get your renovation done in time for Season 3 of #IconHomeProject, you will be eligible for their LUCKY DRAW as well!

 

1st prize: SGD500 CASH

2nd prize: SGD300 CASH

3rd prize: SGD200 CASH

 

I will announce the lucky winners when I announce the winners for #IconHomeProject Season 3!

 

GREEN PACKET #4: SHIOK AH!

Just by showing up at the Syawal Renovation Fair, Icon Interior Design will give you a bottle of SuperShiok Sambal as their doorgift!

Then, you can break fast with the SuperShiok Sambal and get addicted to it.

 

GREEN PACKET #5: Time to BLUM!

RECEIVE FREE UPGRADE TO BLUM SYSTEM WORTH $200

All you need to do to enjoy the FREE UPGRADE will be the following:

  1. Take a selfie of yourself (with or without the ID) during the Syawal Renovation Fair at Icon Interior Design with a caption “WE SIGNED UP WITH ICON INTERIOR DESIGN!”
  2. Share the photo in your own Facebook post and tag me (Diah Mastura Roslan)
  3. LIKE ICON INTERIOR DESIGN FB PAGE!

 

GREEN PACKET #6: Not a crackPOT!

For every sign up with Icon Interior Design, you will receive a branded stainless steel cookware set! I have these pots too and my parents so loving them! I love it when I score brownie points with my parents because that just means they will cook even more good food for me!

If you do not need the cookware set, you can skip Green Packet #6 and proceed to Green Packet #7!

syawal-5

 

GREEN PACKET #7: Born with a silver spoon!

Besides the branded cookware set, you can opt for a branded stainless steel cutlery set instead, just by signing up with Icon Interior Design during the Syawal Renovation Fair! I have them too! HAHA! Everything also I want!

syawal-7

 

BE WARNED GUYS, THEY ARE LEFT WITH ONLY A FEW OF THE COOKWARE AND CUTLERY SETS. SO FIRST TO SIGN, FIRST TO RECEIVE. WHILE STOCKS LAST.

I ACTUALLY WANTED TO BRING HOME MORE BUT THEY WERE LIKE,

“OI! ENOUGH LAH! LATER NOT ENOUGH FOR THE CUSTOMERS WHO SIGN UP.”

 

GREEN PACKET #8: What a great idea!

You will receive a complimentary booklet, which is a compilation of some of the most awesome projects done by Icon Interior Design this far.

syawal-8

 

 

Expect to see Xiaxue’s house.

And mine tooooooo!

syawal-6 

 

 *chuckles*

GREEN PACKET #9: Pre-packed Cement?

You will get to enjoy free absorption of mandatory pre-packed cement for BTO standard and Resale Flats involving masonry works.

 Terms and conditions apply.

 

GREEN PACKET #10: Your turn to shine!

LASTLY,

YOU WILL QUALIFY FOR THE FINAL SEASON OF #ICONHOMEPROJECT! 

If you mention you come from Etrangle and sign up during the Syawal Fair, you are automatically one of the contestants for #IconHomeProject Season Final Season, provided you get your renovation done in time for Season 3 of the challenge. If you intend to only renovate your house next year, then too bad so sad. LOL. Other than that, you will still get to enjoy the rest of the green packets mentioned in this post.

What are the prizes that await you this time round for #IconHomeProject Season 3, once again? Better than Seasons 1 and 2, of course.

—————————————————————————-

FIRST PRIZE:

SGD 2000 electrical appliances voucher

 

SECOND PRIZE:

SGD 1500 electrical appliances voucher

 

THIRD PRIZE:

SGD 1000 electrical appliances voucher

—————————————————————————-

If you ask me how to increase your chances of winning the #IconHomeProject, I will say you should listen a bit more to what your interior designer suggests. I have seen how the wrong choice of colours or furnishing (due to the persistence of the customers) totally ruined the entire concept of the house. When I asked the IDs how come some of the houses did not turn out as great, they told me sadly, “What to do? The owner insisted. They are the paying master, after all. We can only suggest.”

 

SO LISTEN MORE TO YOUR ID OKAY? THEN THEY WILL DESIGN YOUR HOUSE AS NICE AS THE FOLLOWING HOUSES, IF NOT NICER.

ICON-HOUSE2

 

TEN GREEN PACKETS IN ALL?

(Okay fine, technically it is nine green packets.)

THIS IS EVEN BETTER THAN THE CNY FAIR, NEVERTHELESS!

(And I thought that one was already so good!)

THANK YOU THANK YOU!

 

Let me also spend some time to thank the following people who have made #IconHomeProject Season 2 a bigger success than the first one.

 

#1: THANKS Blog Readers!

First up, I would like to thank my readers who engaged Icon Interior Design and put their trust in them! I guess you should already know by now that I do not fancy promoting something that I do not believe in.

One of my readers told me this the other time, which tickled me.

“I like to refer to your blog for anything. But my friends sometimes think that whatever you blog about or promote is too good to be true. It’s like you are trying to cover up the bad (or back) side of the company or product.”

OH MY GOSH.

Fair enough if some of my readers have this impression of me.

But may I explain myself now, please? I think I have this so many times before but never mind, since I am turning into an auntie, might as well repeat the same old thing again and again.

You see ah, I do not promote just because I am paid or sponsored to do so. If that particular product or company does not catch my attention or does not impress me as a consumer, I would not even blog about it at all, no matter how much I am offered to do so. Besides, which client would want to pay me for saying something negative about them, right? LOL.

So trust me when you read my blog because whatever you read is not something made up. If I like it or I believe in it, I will blog about it wholeheartedly. If I don’t, I will not even mention it. It is really as simple as that.

CAN?

 

On a side note, your experience in home renovation and my experience in home renovation may differ because of our different personalities, communication styles, threshold level, and expectations. But other than that, the IDs from Icon Interior Design that I have been working with (namely Wayne, Shafee and Hamed) are nice chaps, and are more than 100% committed and experienced in their field of work. They are definitely not the sort with the “Aiyah just do anyhow as long as we get paid!” mentality. This also explains why we are good friends on normal days. If they were frauds or cheats in the first place, I would not even mix around with them because my mum told me not to mix with bad company.

When we are talking business, we can turn into the worst enemies ever. Fauzi Anuar can vouch for this because he has seen how I argued with those guys just to get my point across. He kept shaking his head while photographing the houses. On another side note, thank you so much to my buddy Fauzi Anuar for the beautiful photos which often end up looking as good as 3D photos. He is a perfectionist, so cannot blame him for always delivering nothing but the best.

#2: THANKS Icon Interior Design!

I have to really thank the guys from Icon Interior Design for always listening to my ideas and suggestions first before they suggest their ideas because well, I believe I know my readers better. But what I am trying to say here is, it is very rare to have the boss listening attentively to you and agreeing to your suggestions 99% of the time, right?

And which boss would entertain your nonsense and do a Dubsmash for you?

YES HE DID ONE FOR ME. BUT HE DOES NOT ALLOW ME TO SHARE IT WITH YOU. 

HAHAHAHAHAHA!

So thank you Wayne, Shafee and Hamed for entertaining my nonsense, which is really not nonsense actually, most of the time. I just like to conceal my ingenious ideas with baloney. LOL.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………

 

After reading this post, you can proceed to make an appointment with Icon Interior Design, but you got to most importantly inform them that you come from my blog.

Nowadays, with so many renovation companies out there in the market, you are really spoilt for choice, aren’t you? I was like you too, but I guess at the end of the day, you have to trust your instincts and choose the renovation company based on:

 

  1. How comfortable you are with the interior designer attending to you.

 

  1. How experienced the interior designer is in his line of work.

 

  1. How realistic and practical the interior designer is in providing ideas and the solutions for your new house.

 

  1. Your budget.

 

At the end of the day, it is not advisable to go for the cheapest rates because cheap does not ensure quality (not in renovation at least), especially if you are looking to stay in that house for a long period of time. Some renovation companies can afford to give you the cheapest rates at the expense of compromising the workmanship and quality of the materials used. That said, you do not have to go for a high-end company as well as you need to consider your budget.

AND WOULDN’T YOU WANT TO SEE THE 3D DRAWING OF YOUR FUTURE HOUSE FIRST BEFORE YOU PROCEED WITH THE RENOVATION WORKS?

 

THE DESIGNERS AT ICON INTERIOR DESIGN WILL DO IT FOR YOU FOR FREE.

 

Contact them today at 9431 4921 to book an appointment and to find out more!

 

OKAY I AM DONE.

Have a blessed Ramadan, my Muslim readers.

That said, I will behave exceptionally well.
