Bidadari Cliffside Estate interior design

It gives us great pleasure to confirm our very enjoyable and impressive association with Design Solutions.

Lloyd Hassencahl and his two wonderful Associates, Lily Sita and Rani Trevelyan made the challenging task of designing and building our beautiful Bidadari Cliffside Estate in Nusa Dua, Bali, a fabulous and enjoyable adventure in Design, Materials, and Architecture.

A daunting task when we live in Australia and our partners in the Villa (and close friends) live in the USA. We set out to run the project by remote-control which was heading in the wrong direction until Lloyd and his team took over and worked their magic to create something very special for us in our much loved island paradise.

As we enjoyed the experience and the great result Design Solutions achieved, we talked to Lloyd about the planned renovations to our house in Sydney. Again, even though in another country, Lloyd and his Associates did a brilliant job working with us on design, finishes, tiles, doors, furniture, soft furnishings, curtains, and custom designed light fittings (spectacularly designed by Lloyd).

Everything is now complete in Sydney and we have the most fabulous result thanks to Design Solutions involvement in the whole renovation process. We couldn't be more delighted with our Bali and Sydney homes and our association with Design Solutions and would enthusiastically recommend them to anybody considering their multi-talented services.

Design Solutions is a "one of a kind" design firm that has traveled the globe with me over the past 10 years. They have been at my side in Bali, Hong Kong, Guam, and the United States, always with a sense of inspiration and humor. Lloyd and Team are now family, and the secret ingredient ensuring everywhere I travel becomes my home. They capture the unique elements of each environment and culture where I live, and collectively blend all of these experiences into a lifetime of memories.

Design Solutions was a pleasure to work with. From the very start of our collaboration until even after the project was completed, they were caring, helping and accommodating. The quality of their design work is self-explanatory from the results of the projects at Mozaic Ubud, Mozaic Beachclub, and Spice by Chris Salans. It would be a pleasure for me to work with them again at any time.

Our villa in Ubud was tattered and badly in need of a makeover. An extended search led us to Design Solutions, and the match could not have been better. They were able to adapt the design to satisfy our tastes and also do justice to the beautiful buildings and setting. Design Solutions was professional throughout the process, and we ended up with a home that is better than we dreamed it might have been. We recommend them with no hesitation.

Design Solutions proved to be our perfect solution in helping to build our dream home in Bali. Lloyd Hassencahl and his team provided invaluable insight and direction on the "Dos and Don'ts" of building an island home and offered both technical know-how and interior design vision on everything from furniture design to accessorizing. The result was everything and more than we could have ever hoped for--- all with complete collaboration and a smile. Through the years, we have continued to call on their advice and expertise in all things regarding our life long love of Bali and the place we now call home.

LLoyd Hassencahl is intuitive, warm, vastly talented----and what an incredible team he's assembled. LLoyd and Design Solutions approached every corner (and there were many!) of our homes as carefully and tastefully as if they were their own....but with our, the owners', sensibilities kept ever in mind. Seldom have I met a Designer who provided, and then so beautifully enhanced, such a perfectly mirrored image of his clients' personal aesthetics and needs. Bravo!

I have had the absolute pleasure of working with Lloyd from Design Solutions for many interior design projects, and I must say, his services exceeded my expectations every time. Lloyd's exceptional talent, keen eye for detail, & unparalleled sense of space, taste, style, and luxury truly set him apart as an extraordinary interior designer.

From the very beginning, Lloyd makes the entire design process an effortless & enjoyable experience. He takes the time to understand our vision, preferences, and requirements, and skillfully translated them into a breathtaking reality. His ability to blend functionality with aesthetics is nothing short of remarkable.

Lloyd's creativity knows no bounds. His innovative ideas & unique design concepts breathed life into every corner of every project. He pays meticulous attention to every element, from selecting the perfect color schemes & textures to curating exquisite pieces of furniture and decor.

Throughout the project, Lloyd demonstrates a high level of professionalism & dedication. He keeps us well-informed at every stage, ensuring that the project progressed smoothly & within the agreed timeline and budget. His commitment to delivering excellence is truly commendable.

What impresses me the most was Lloyd's ability to strike a balance between opulence & comfort. He creates an ambiance that not only exudes luxury but also feels warm and inviting, resulting in beautifully designed spaces.

I can confidently say that Lloyd is not just an interior designer but also an artist who has the rare ability to transform ordinary spaces into extraordinary works of art. His passion for design shines through in every detail, and it is evident that he genuinely cares about the satisfaction of his clients.

I am grateful to Lloyd and his team at Design Solutions. If you are looking for a truly exceptional interior designer in Bali, I wholeheartedly recommend Design Solutions.
