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.

Cheryl did a great job of listening to my wish list and designing a lighting plan that was not only effective but beautiful. I feel the products are priced competitively and the service is great!!

CHamm's Home Interiors
I have a lot of great design ideas for my mid-century modern home, but I turned to Hamm's because I had never put in a kitchen before, and I thought that their expertise was what I needed. The plans, which took two months to get, were nothing amazing or exciting--I was very unimpressed. (and prefer what I came up with at Menard's) The only surprising part was the prices, which were high!!! A 'retro' countertop would cost me $798, vs. $150 for a plain fomica one at Menard's. Which brings up a sore point with me--she called my whole project 'retro' and doesn't seem to know mid century modern--which I view as a huge deficit (and shocking!), for an interior designer. Her presentation to me, of my project in their store was not very professional either--I think she viewed my project as a small job that she probably wouldn't get anyway, and as a result--she sure won't!

ADone Done Services
The company owner, Pat, was very responsive to all our requests for information, design ideas, layout and estimate for our large remodeling project. He was professional and quick to contact us throughout the entire process. He even invited us to his own home for examples of work and design ideas he has done. When we balked at the initial cost of the estimate of $35,000, Pat worked diligently with us to find a solution and bring the costs down further. We could not have asked for better service. We greatly appreciate the detailed estimates given. So why did we not choose Done Done Services for our project? It came down to a finding a different contractor who simply "got" our design aesthetics and overall feel for what we wanted accomplished better. We would absolutely contact Done Done Services for other projects in the future.

If I could give James Brown an A+, I would. My husband and I are thrilled with the fireplace mantle that he designed to our specifications, built and installed for us. We had never liked the mantle that was original to the house, but wanted one that was wider and better suited to the furnishings and the uses to which we put our family room. After we left a message for James, he contacted us to set up an appointment and look over the project. We discussed reusing an alternate mantle but the modifications that would need to be made didn't make sense. We then discussed how we planned to use the new mantle and some design ideas, but we were completely relying on James to figure how to build and mount it to a solid brick wall. James stopped in a few days later with some moulding samples that we could use to decide on proportions and size and we shared ideas to come up with a final design. We did not have any specific timetable but James suggested the whole process could take about a month, which was fine with us. After that meeting James went to work on the construction job and did stop in a time or two to check on stain colors and measurements, etc. At the end of a month, the new mantle was ready to install. He understood our wishes and ideas and designed and constructed EXACTLY what we wanted! I am only sorry that we waited so long to make this change because it has really made a difference in the room! I believe James will be posting a photo of the installed job, and we would just like to say that it's even better in when seen in person. I highly recommend him and in fact, we have already talked with him about some other projects we would like him to tackle. Ihope we will be seeing him shortly to start work on those!
