"I can highly recommend Karin Rysgaard from Cocoon Styling! I recently had my dining chairs reupholstered, excellent workmanship and the colour Karin recommended is very complementary to my colour palette. Karin also helped me with choosing coordinating cushions and a rug to add warmth to my home. My project is not complete yet as I still need a few furnishings for my home, but the best thing with working with Karin is not only her lovely energising personality but she is always available to answer any questions...even when she is away"
"I just wanted to share that I had a great experience with Karin Rysgaard from Cocoon Styling. My living room looked like a dorm room for the under 5 set, complete with magic marker on the back of the couch and unmatched everything. Karin helped me pick out new fabric and reupholster my couch and chair. She also ordered custom pillows and helped me pick out accessories that pulled the whole room together."
"I bought some very good quality second hand dining chairs, but they desperately needed reupholstering. Karin had some great suggestions to compliment the color with existing carpets. The results were gorgeous, picked a blue color that blends well, much more interesting/inviting than plain old white chairs,and I would have never thought of that color choice on my own! She's also very organized, responsive and cost conscious. So pleased with my 'new' chairs!"
"We moved into a new place earlier this year and I asked Karin to help us do up our living room. We had an initial consultation for 2 hours where we came up with a conceptual design for the space. We moved around some existing pieces and settled on a general layout that we had not even considered. It makes the room look more open and spacious. Keeping our budget and style in mind Karin then suggested some potential pieces or types of pieces we should look for. There was no pressure to buy anything and during the entire process she was very responsive and available for questions or opinions. After getting all the big pieces we had a second session to work on accessorizing the place. I can truly say it was a pleasure working with her. She was very professional and I am extremely happy with the way our living room has turned out."
"Fabulation has worked with Karin on a number of projects and her style is clearly why each of her projects are so beautifully executed. She is extremely professional, and from a business perspective, very accurate with you on the time and budget it takes for her to complete her projects. It allows for us to build Cocoon into our business services. The key to Cocoon is the beauty it creates."

"Cocoon Styling transformed our dark, musty restaurant area into a light, refreshing and romantic haven. Offering our diners the upscale surroundings which they would expect from an Orient Express hotel. The choice of colours used to refurbish our existing furniture and fixtures, the revamped landscaping, personal toches and small details used by Karin impacted greatly. This has been noticed by return guests and local diners frequenting the restaurant. Subtle differences, yet loud enough to hear our guests say "wow, this is a beautiful venue". A observation never uttered before. We are more than happy with the outcome and would recommend Cocoon Styling to anyone who wants a quick fix, or a completely new design concept."

"I highly recommend Karin's interior design consultation service. Spending 2 hours in my home with her, where she gave recommendations on how I might better use and arrange furniture and art I already own, and suggestions for potential pieces to purchase and update, was so incredibly helpful. Karin's knowledge, good 'eye', and openness made this consultation some of the best money I've spent in a long time (and she's very reasonable!) My home now has a fresh new feel, and I'm still adding more of Karin's suggestions as I continue to re-arrange and re-organize. Thanks again, Karin!
A huge thank you for making our gallery space come to life and filled with great energy. You nailed immediately the spirit of our gallery space and delivered an experience that we know our corporate and private clients will want to be part of. You are the ultimate space uplifter! Merci beaucoup!"
"Karin is so down to earth and practical and easy to work with. She has great ideas and is a master of getting things executed quickly & as agreed - on time, on Budget. I love that she takes into consideration what you already have and how to work with that as a building block. And then weaves her magic. We have been very happy with the several jobs she has done for us and would highly recommend her."
"I recently moved to Singapore and when my shipment arrived I found myself totally flummoxed as to how to put my new home together, having moved from a house on two floors to an open-plan apartment. Thanks, Karin Rysgaard, for helping me organize and set everything up, using the furniture I already had without making me buy loads of expensive new stuff. Also for respecting my own personal style, rather than simply imposing your own. My new apartment is finally feeling like home!"
"After living in Singapore for 7 years, I wanted a Sentosa lifestyle that would truly capture what I loved about living in the tropical South East Asia. For me, the centrality of Singapore (and Sentosa) allows me to combine a regional work role in Asia, whilst capturing the tropical lifestyle I love. I wanted the outdoors with boating, kayaking, running, biking, & swimming, whilst still being able to retreat to a private patio at home for a morning coffee or twilight champagne overlooking the boats on the waterways. That was the brief I shared with Karin of Cocoon. Having carefully selected a ground floor apartment, overlooking palm trees, boats on a private canal, Karin transformed a blank canvas condo with cold white walls, floors and ceilings into my dream home.
My home is a reflection of the warmth and lightness of exotic, tropical paradise in Sri Lanka & Bali, accented with treasures of my travels & tropical orchards that I love. My home truly reflects all my passions and interests, thanks to Karin’s amazing ability to understand what is important to me and transform, bespoke style, my existing furniture & new condo, into a loving home that authentically reflects my life.
I am very happily “Cocooned”!"
"Lovely place! truely a lifestyle experience while learning something great. You can start looking around your home and make recycle possible almost to all. Bring your creativity side out of you. Sophie is truly fun and attentive to your learning experience. Highly recommend"
"What an amazing discovery this painting that we use without sanding, atelier provided by Sophie that teaches us how to transform an old-fashioned furniture into a super-trendy furniture, and all in a very friendly atmosphere."
"Just spend the morning re-energising an old IKEA footstool under the careful guidance of Sophie. Had a fab time doing it in a positive and encouraging environment while learning about different paints, waxes, brushes, techniques, etc. Feeling more confident and totally motivated now to try bigger and more interesting pieces"
