Recent Review: Arcbazar offers a very unique service. I was looking for some interior design ideas for a new home. There are many interior designer's that offer consultation services. They provide color options, ideas for furniture etc. Whats cool about arcbazar, however, is that it works based on a competition that you create on their website. Instead of getting one designer providing you one concept, you get multiple submissions from different interior designers. I created a competition to provide interior design ideas for my family room/kitchen area. I ended up getting 13 different design ideas. What I was impressed with was the quality of some of the submissions. Many of the designers submitted full color 3 dimensional layouts that made it a lot easier to visualize the design. They also provided a list of furniture, paint and accessory options. Overall I was very pleased with the results. Just be aware that you have to be reasonable about your award amount. You cant enter something like $50 and ask for a full interior design of your whole house. When creating your competition the website will give you a suggested award amount. This suggested award is based on the square feet of the area you wish to design. My only gripe with the service was their website. It's a bit rough around the edges and at times their site was very slow. Sometimes it could be frustrating to use. The only reason I didnt give the service all A's.

Business Description: Duchess Decorating & Designs is a sole proprietorship business. I work out of my home so I do not have overhead cost, thereby saving you money. Any work that I recommend in the design presentation such as painting, custom sewing, window treatment and carpet installation, carpentry work,or construction will be subcontracted out and the cost for these contractors' work will be included in the design bid price.
Some retailers offer designers discounts on their purchases so I will pass the discounts to my customers.
My decorating experience includes weddings and holiday especially Christmas) decorating also.
Please note that hiring a decorator to do your Christmas decorating for you can save you time and energy during the holiday rush and you get an elegant, professional, custom look for your home or business and you get to cross one more thing off your list of things to do for the holidays. And don't forget, if you want a WOW factor for your special wedding day, I'd love to design and install your wedding ceremony and reception decorations.

Reviews in Grant to Design an Interior Lighting Plan
I can't recommend Tim/Home Tech more highly. Tim was friendly, precise in his work, and always did was he said he would. Also, if you are interested in help choosing colors for a room (my wife and I are hopeless), his daughter is part way through her degree in interior design, and was a huge help at a very reasonable rate.

ANorth Alabama Builders
Excellent craftsmanship, attention to detail, creative design ideas, and dependability are hallmarks of North Alabama Builders. The crew of Ben, Jared, and Mason were polite, respectful, and went beyond the call of duty and performed jobs other than the ones they were strictly contracted to complete. We are 100% satisfied with every aspect of the job(s) they did and recommend them highly. If you need home repairs/remodeling, North Alabama Builders should be your first (and last) call!

ASusan Gregg Wallpaper & Painting
I was very pleased with Susan's work. The cost was very reasonable, and she was very responsive (returned my calls, showed up the next day to give me an estimate), and provided design ideas regarding the tile around my tub, which looks great. The painting was very good and very thorough; unlike some painters, she removed lights, towel bars, outlet covers, etc., instead of just painting around them. I thought I was just getting a painter, but I really believe she can tackle most of my home projects (e.g., wall tile, crown molding, etc.). She also has a very good design eye. I plan to use her next month for similar work in my other two bathrooms.

ADawn D Totty Designs
Dawn promptly arrived at our appt. time. She was very organized and we immediately got to work. She did not waste any of our time. She took notes on my likes and dislikes as well as my decorating "style". She listened to everything I had to say as far as my likes and dislikes and was never pushy. I was initially nervous about working with an interior designer, but she immediately made me feel at ease. She is very warm and very likable and I felt at ease with her immediately. She has a GREAT KNOWLEDGE of design and the current trends and I look forward to working with her in the future as my project will be a lengthy one. The color choices she recommended were PERFECT!! She was here for around 5 hours and I paid a 75.00 travel fee as she lives in Chattanooga and I am in Madison. It was MONEY WELL SPENT!! I VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND DAWN D. TOTTY DESIGNS for your design and decorating needs.

Hired Patrick to tighten the hot wire strand on existing field fence. Did a half a** job. Requested SEVERAL times for him to complete the job. He did not. It is still not tightened and therefore the fence is not hot. Job not completed. He did build a new section of field fence for me and installed a gate and did a good job at a fair price. He did not, however, properly stretch the fencing and several weeks later he came back out to tighten the fence. He only tightened the top portion, which left the middle and bottom sagging. My horses have since broken the fence in several areas. He was supposed to install new hot wire on this new section and despite being onsite a couple more times, he has not started this job. For some reason he also has not finished stretching the new section of fencing correctly. He preferred to start other jobs, always stating that he would do the fence later in the day....or the next day....or the next week.... Job not completed. He also started but did not finish a dog fence. I explained where I wanted the T posts and how many to use, and he did not follow the plan. My dog fence is still not finished. The T posts he put in are spaced too far apart and the fencing is not tight. Job not completed. He quoted me a price to install several interior lights and fans but when he actually came to do the work, he wanted twice as much. The end price was still a very fair price so I paid it. He did not finish installing the lights and after THREE weeks I still do not have a bathroom light installed as he removed the vanity light that was there and has not been back out to complete the job. Job not completed. On the day he installed the lights, his vehicle broke down and he borrowed a tool from me to help him get home. It is now at least three weeks since that occurred and despite three phone calls and one email, he has not returned my tool much less finished tightening the original hot wire, stretching the new section of fence, installing the hot wire on the new section of fence, installing the bathroom light, or the dog fence. I paid Patrick at the end of each day, the amount he asked for. Patrick is polite and professional --- once he is onsite. He does not return phone calls, does not show up as planned, and has left me wondering if/when he will finish the multiple jobs he has started for me. I assume not. He evidently has no intention of returning my tool either. I will not hire Patrick again nor will I recommend him.
