“I want to make sure my designs are always stylish because it shows my expertise and sets me apart. However, I don't want to go overboard,” said Kimhok, adding that the main point of interior design is the process of shaping the space and creating a certain mood.

Kimhok said in order to come up with a good design, first he sketches many different concepts and combines them to get the best option.Then he plays with colours and material swatches. Sometimes, he does research to get inspiration and up-to-date materials.

In interior design, light and colour play an important role to give a good vibe to a place. Kimhok said: “Colours and lights help the space a lot. I would normally go to light and soft colours to help the room look clean and spacious.”

Wallpaper can also add personality and serenity to a room. Kimhok said he would normally use simple wallpaper rather than textured wallpaper.

When talking about an interior design style, we should always think outside the box. The creative designer should possess creativity. Kimhok said: “Being inspired and being a copy-cat are two different things. As long as you come up with your own design, it is always unique.”
