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.

Recent Review: Amazing team of an architect, interior designer, and general contractor with great taste! The project went very smoothly with minimal headaches. These guys are taking the pain out of dealing with contractors and subs and they are very cost conscious. I would recommend and use them over and over again.

Carrie at Visual harmony has been great to work with. I have very specific ideas of home interiors for which I am looking and Carrie has helped me source the pieces. She is responsive and provides a variety of ideas/options within the direction I have provided. Work continues on-going.

Where do I start! I am so happy I found a trustworthy and reliable contractor in Walnut Creek. Our house was basically a complete rebuild from a 1941 bungalow. We expanded the existing footprint by more than double and also added a detached garage. S&L was the absolute best! We bought the house in February but were not able to complete the drawings/permit process until a whopping 7 months later-- by which time a substantial amount of our resources were used up by paying rent + mortgage+ storage. The contractor we had planned to use could not fit us into his schedule so we were in a bind-- I found Jacob and contacted him immediately. Everyone he has on his team was courteous, responsible, and just very good at what they do. the craftsmanship that went into our house was much better than many of the new construction track homes we have seen. I only wish we found him sooner--since his business also does the architectural drawings-- we probably could have gotten into our house several months earlier. As I was very nervous about making changes to my home, the team at S&L Remodeling and Design made me feel comfortable and excited with the new renovations. The process was quicker than expected and I now have a beautiful kitchen and bathroom space!

She came very highly rated by Angie's List. She was very personable and responsive to our discussions. She offered a lot of good ideas and did what we asked as far as the design plans and alternate furniture layouts. We didn't really adopt her plan mostly because there were some technical difficulties in her suggestions, but she did give us some good ideas for things we might consider for the future. We probably spent more per hour than we should have for as much work as we got done. We probably should have been more focused in our time with her in getting what we wanted. My only disappointment was that we didn't adopt her recommendations, but that's not her fault.

She made a room design for the living room. She purchased appropriately sized furntiture for a room with very unusual dimensions. I'm very happy with her work. She gave me three choices within my price range and the furniture fit the uniquely sized room perfectly. She is very professional and prompt. There is no project too small. She will always take the time to go over intricate details. I needed a bathroom stool and I don't have the time for little decisions and she found three choices and it looks perfect. Although she is based in San Francisco, she readily travels to the east bay area.

She helped me choose paint colors and carpet for the entire condo. It is very frustrating and she gave me a few options and colors to choose from that she recommended. She also gave me three area rug samples to choose from for my living room. They were all great suggestions and the rooms looks great. I interviewed four designers before I met her and it was a pleasure to experience her enthusiasm and attention to detail. She is very fun to work.

It was great working with Cindy on our vacation home project. The property is in another state so she had to visualize what we wanted by looking at photos or the builder’s webpage resources. Cindy has access to a wide variety of furnishings and fabric choices whose quality far exceeds that of readymade goods. We are very pleased with the results.

Carrie Yoshida and I have worked together on several projects. She is a generous designer who really has the clients best interest in mind. As a flooring vendor of hers I have had the privilege of watching her work close with her clients through simple or complex projects. I appreciate how much she cares about the finished product making her clients happy. Would definitely recommend her!

Carrie helped with making changes to our home for resale. I threw a lot at her at once, with wanting some help with EVERY room. I thought she would be overwhelmed, but she offered some great suggestions for changes to several rooms. Carrie was also very conscious of our budget, which I really appreciated.
