Bonder & Beardsley Designs
City: Glendal, az."The guys were very helpful in taking what I had already done with my color selection in the kitchen and chose complementing colors for the dining and living rooms. The painter they hired was great and did a fabulous job in a timely fashion. Love the wood floors, red chair and drapes - great accents for what I already had.

RingSide Pub & Grub
My friends and I stopped in after finding this place online. This place is boxing theme which I think is cool. They should show a boxing movie once a Week. Wednesday and call it like Winner Wednesday or Thumpin' Thursday or Fightin' Fridays. The drinks are a good price. The food is great! I recommend the knockout if you are in the mood for a burger. I bought this like family size Corona. The quality is great for the price. The owner was nice enough to chat with us off and on. She is funny, lovely and she cooks too! Marry me! *Cough* I mean have a merry ol' time here. She is putting together great events. Please list all your events so I can check it out. Oh and do you do Taco Tuesday? I live right down the street and is only slightly out of my route home. I forgot to mention this on the Facebook review but you could totally do boxing video games too! The ringside gals are in bikini's. If you have anything against nice ladies in bikini's this place might not be for you.

Elephant Bar
We've enjoyed the Elephant Bar and Grill in Peoria occasionally, and we're VERY glad we found the one in No. Phoenix now. I especially like the wok dishes ( too many good choices though) Menu is extensive, a global menu theme leaves choices for everyone. During peak hours it can get busy but they have plentiful staff to keep things moving, and the food is worth it!

I recently moved to Phoenix and had a hard time finding a therapist with office hours that accommodate my schedule. Dr. Milner has been very flexible and has made it easy for me to schedule appointments. She's been amazing...professional, caring, helpful and easy to talk to. I highly recommend her.

The Shoe Shop
I brought in an old pair of boots and a pair of heels that I wanted to wear for Christmas - he got them done in the same day and my boots never have looked better! I would definitely recommend him to anyone and especially if you put things off like I do and needed them done in a hurry.

The Fillmore Vig
Too trendy a resturant. Deplorable parking situation. The food was about what one would expect.. that is to say average. The service was excellent though! All in all the adage of, "You get what you pay for" is Not true here. Over priced to be sure.

Over Easy
Had a mid-week late breakfast at Over Easy. Great service, nice ambiance, and interesting menu items that were not your traditional diner fare. Large portions for a good value with high-end ingredients. The "Over Easy" was delicious!

Valle Luna Mexican Food & Cantina
I love this restaurant. We go there almost once a week. Great happy hour prices. Great service! Damien the bartender always offers great drinks and laughs. The tacos, mexican pizza and grilled honey hot wings are our favorites for happy hour.

We celebrated my niece's engagement with brunch here. A great spot for brunch, lunch or dinner, with a bar if you're looking for drinks to accompany your meal. Their Bloody Mary bar is fantastic! Sunday football was on the TVs, too.
Tips & Advices
Interior designers can generally work on every type of room, but one should not assume that all of them can work on every type of space. More complicated projects--for example those in buildings with historic preservation strictures, or those that are going for sustainability certifications--will be suited to interior designers with specific expertise. Also, interior designers that have experience in a certain type of project may not want to take on projects that are outside their expertise. For example, an interior designer who has only worked on commercial projects may not want to do a small private home.
Every interior designer has their own style, but some designers are more versatile than others. Some really do specialize in functionality and code compliance, whereas others are more focused on aesthetics. Interior decorators are completely focused on visual impact, and therefore should be reviewed and selected based on how well their style is a match for the client’s tastes.
Full-service interior design starts with an assessment of a site and the client’s long-term needs for that space. It encompasses concept design, floor plans and lighting plans, providing project specifications to contractors, supervising  contractor negotiations and installations, applying for permits, and shopping for all the materials and pieces for the project. On top of this, there are the “decorator” deliverables, i.e. creating the aesthetic of the space, selecting wall colors/covers and furniture pieces, purchasing products and installing them.
An interior designer may come into a development project very early on, working with the developer and architect from the pre-construction phase. They may be the one to design floor plans, decide where to place interior walls, and supervise contractors that are installing elements of the build. They often work on commercial projects, although many of them work on residential projects. Interior designers can “switch hats” and do interior decoration, which means they are only focused on the aesthetic elements and visual components of a residence.
An interior designer or interior decorator should ask a potential client what the scope of the project is, what the projected budget is, what payment structure the client wants, and what the timeline for the project is. Also, they should be asking whether the client has any samples of other projects they like, and would like to use as a guideline. They could also ask what the client’s budget for furniture/accessories/art is, since that in many cases is a separate amount from the budget for the designer’s labor. If an interior designer is being interviewed early into a new build or a renovation project, they might ask questions to determine whether they can collaborate with architects and contractors from early on, to execute their vision for the space. If that is not in line with a client’s wishes, the client can then say that the project scope is for interior design only.
