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: When Cal Dillabaugh started Dillabaugh’s Flooring America in 1982 he did not have any aspirations to become anything more than a means to provide a living for him and his family. He founded the business based on the belief to “treat others as you yourself would want to be treated”. Starting a business out of a small showroom on a street corner in Nampa, Idaho, Cal knew that if he didn’t handle concerns quickly and efficiently, that the business would fail.

Business Description: The staging process evaluates the architecture of your home. Staging should only compliment but never distract a potential buyer from your home's architecture and amenities.
- Staged homes sell faster and at a higher price.
- Staged homes differentiate your home from others on the market.
- Staged homes help buyers 'visualize' how their furniture may 'fit' into the home you want to sell them.
- Staged homes appeal to more buyers which leads to more showings and more offers.
Staging is a small marketing investment to make when compared with the cost of a property sitting longer on the market or not selling at all. We can stage as little or as much as you want as full and partial staging are options to consider.
We own all of our furniture, art and accessories such that we're able to accommodate all types of homes. We participate in the Parade of Homes and Fall Collection.
Personal service, dedication to details, integrity and professionalism are all part of the first class service offered by Stirling Staging. We will work with you and will spend as much time as needed in order to showcase your home. The process will be simple and fun as we pride ourselves with exceeding your expectations.
Bids/proposals are always complimentary. We believe in 'Paying it Forward'

Business Description: Rob is an award winning interior designer with over 14 years of professional experience in the commercial and residential design industry. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Interior Planning and Design from the University of Idaho in 1995, as well as minors in both Art and Architecture. After receiving his degree, he went on to pass the NCIDQ (National Council for Interior Design Qualification) Exam to be designated a certified interior designer by national standards. Rob has also studied abroad in Rome, Italy through Penn State University’s Architecture program.

Rob most recently enjoyed the pleasure of representing the Lysi Bishop Real Estate Team for 2 ½ years in Harris Ranch. His background in the architectural and design industry were a perfect fit for new construction and especially for a quality builder like Boise Hunter Homes. After finishing out 2012 with almost $10 million in sales, Rob decided to establish Sower real estate to help people buy, sell, or invest in any real estate opportunity rather than being limited to new construction alone.
Rob lives in Boise and is happily married to his wife of over 13 years and enjoys spending time with his family. When he’s not busy at home, he can be found playing golf, reading, or getting involved with his church.
Recent Review: A and quot;greenand quot; remodeler we were thinking of hiring suggested that we needed an interior designer to accomplish our goals and recommended Sarah Cunningham of Desiderata Interiors as someone knowledgeable about environmentally sensitive design. Our introductory meeting ended up lasting 4 hours because we had so much fun discussing Sarah's many ideas. The time flew. Sarah heard the underlying issues we were trying to address, essentially making the house lighter and warmer, and suggested ways we had not considered. We are now winding up the project five months after that first meeting. We have greatly enjoyed working with Sarah, who is not only knowledgeable but friendly and fun. She ended up being the general contractor for the project and all of the sub-contractors have been of excellent quality. She accommodated our doing much of the painting to save costs. Sarah has been very responsive to us and worked all hours of the day and night to help us achieve our goals. She is dynamic, energetic, enthusiastic as well as creative. She kept the project moving in a timely way and paid attention to all the little details that can easily be overlooked.

She helped pull together a remodel quickly. She built a wall with storage with clever design that allowed for more storage in a media room. She found some really good bargains on area rugs that were very high quality. She is also excellent with choosing paint colors.

BInterior Re-Dzyn & Staging
We just purchased a house and wanted some ideas about what we might do to personalize our new home. Gale first visited us at our current home to see our furniture and art work and find out what we plan to bring to the new house. Then we all went to the new house so that Gale could see the layout and help to envision how to design our new home. She recommended painting the walls as the entire house is white. We also talked about changing the lighting, fixtures & cabinet hardware to better fit our taste. We also talked about new window treatments and she recommended one or two merchants. Generally, Gale starts with an initial consultation (1.5 hrs for $100) and then offers to assist in creating your new vision. After the initial consultation, she bills her time at $20/hr for more planning or shopping. We had planned to replace the window coverings and replace the closets, but her suggestion to paint the walls was very helpful. It took some time for Gale to get back to us with painters, and we had already had 4 people out for estimates and chosen The Painters. We may contact Gale again after we have moved in, but have not decided for sure.

Gale was fabulous, we have worked with her for almost a year. She has wonderful taste and feel for color, she was wonderful to work with. She made many special trips to suppliers to look for samples and provide us suggestions for our family room and kitchen. We highly recommend her for interior design work, you won't be disappointed.

Jessyca from Interior Intentions did an amazing job in a challenging environment. Our family was moving from Texas to Idaho and having a home built. She was patient, resourceful, and a pleasure to work with. She took the time to educate us on our options and didn't mind the fact that we had to do many things via email. Jessyca is very professional and we highly recommend her for all of your Interior Design needs.

ADAVID & SONS/DAVID WINTER PAINTING
We were recommended to Dave through a interior designer in Meridian, Idaho. We called him for an estimate and he was very timely in coming to our home and providing us with an estimate. Dave painted our home the next week while we were on vacation. We came home so happy and pleased with his work. We did decide to paint a few additional walls and he did these right away. He provided us with a bill and some extra tips that would benefit our home. Again, he was very timely, responsive to our phone calls and questions, and trustworthy. We will use him again and refer him to our friends and family.

ABRITE ELECTRIC CO
I have used Andy previously and I was so happy with his services that I contacted him again for this job. The house is recently purchased and there are some upgrades I wanted to have done. Andy is extremely responsive to my calls and questions. I live out of state and he works very well with my property manager. This last time I arranged to have the work done when I was visiting the house (vacation home) as I wanted to meet him. He is the consummate professional and very professional. He was very informative on what he was going to be doing and he did it with great efficiency. His prices are very reasonable and his work is excellent. He is my electrician of record now.
