“At HM Oliver, style is created and there are forcible efforts to move away from trends,” says Principle Amabel Chan. “Our design philosophy encourages risk-taking on the homeowner’s part and the willingness to incorporate unusual and unexpected elements.”

There’s usually no better vehicle for inspiration for a designer than visiting another country. Often times, international voyages provide them with a feast of ideas to bring back to the drawing room when planning their next remodel or maybe it rouses ideas for items to be on the lookout for on their next buying trip.
HM Oliver’s own Amabel Chan is no stranger to this concept of travel-inspired design. She took a trip to France last year and came back with tones of great ideas, as noted in our last post, “Get Inspired.”
