When decorating (or redecorating) calls for a professional, you’ll want one of Shanghai’s best. Here are three top interior decorators.
Hot Dog Décor
Founded by Asian designer Peter Lam, Hot Dog Décor offers traditional decorating services as well as decorating help towards the purpose of selling or leasing. Lam also provides shopping assistance for those looking for creative input to decorate on their own. With expertise in commercial (retail, restaurant, creative office) and residential (villa, lane house and apartment) design, Lam creates homey and elegant spaces that are each unique to their owner and feel organic.
By mixing different styles and elements together, Lam creates spaces that burst with personality, paying great attention to detail. If you are looking for a professional who will treat your project as his or her own, Lam is without a doubt your designer. Clients praise his imagination, understanding and network of connections—and he is able to find whatever clients need in a short time for a fair price. Lam’s past work includes The Villa, a chic women’s fashion boutique in the former French Concession.
