I loved the way the Elemento team combined vintage together with some lovely new pieces. We come home to space where we can all be comfortable…. Each of my kids had very specific ideas about their bedrooms, and Elemento pleased us all

I wanted a complete bespoke fit out for my new apartment, including a built in bar in the place of an existing corner study! The designer form Elemento took into consideration all my needs and requests for a modern, elegant look that was both homely and practical. My concerns regarding my back issue were taken into consideration with all the bespoke furniture made. I am very pleased with the outcome and the look that has been achieved. I left most of the colour & fabric decisions to the designer in charge and she gave me her opinion on what she thought I would like and what would look good. The whole apartment looks fantastic and I highly recommend this interior design company and the designer.

My Tiara apartment has done very well to attract attention for people who would like to come to Dubai on holiday. Kris and Julie did a great job in providing us with an apartment that provides a luxury lifestyle that visitors seek. I am very happy that the décor suits so many different tastes.

I was very happy with the completed result. Kris and Julie turned this project around in a short space of time and completed it within budget all whilst adding the “Wow” factor

I have been fortunate to be able to use the services of the renown and accomplished Elemento Design Team. I have used this Team before and they have never let me down. I have complete trust in their ability to deliver to my entire satisfaction. In fact, they seem to know me and my needs better than I do myself.

I must say that I do not have “artistic flair” and I find it very difficult to conceptualize and envisage the end product. The Elemento Design Team do take time to explain to me in detail the style, products, materials, colors, textures etc they plan to use in each room; however, I find this difficult to appreciate fully. This is why “trust” is so critically important. The end result is pleasing to me and exceeds that which I had imagined.

I ask myself “How is it that the Elemento Design Team are able to repeatedly deliver beyond expectation?”. It is simple: their team members have excellent complimentary skills and experience; and they work together effectively with excellent co-ordination and communications.

Julie has excellent design skills and is able to conceptualize and expertly advise where I can “cut corners” to minimize costs and is robust to highlight politely where it would be a mistake to do so. Kris is a marvel with great project management skills and knowledge of available technology and “systems” (HiFi, WiFi, routers, gadgets etc) that are key to ensuring everything is functional and “just right”. Lastly, but not least, is Francis who has the unenviable task of ensuring “vision” is transformed into “reality”. He has rare ability to ensure that those entrusted to carry out the “chores” (painting, plumbing, plastering, electrical, deliveries etc) do so in an efficient and conscientious manner. He has zen-like patience that enables him to remain focused and achieve the extremely high and exacting standards that he sets for himself. This allows me to keep relaxed – confident in the knowledge that everything will turn out “just right”.

As is evident, I am pleased with, and grateful to, the Elemento Design Team.
