professional INTERIOR Designers

At Bella Vie Interiors we understand that renovating and redecorating your home or investment property can sometimes be daunting.

We understand that this may be the first time you’ve considered getting your home professionally styled and you’re concerned about making mistakes that could lower the desirability of the home. 

When you work with Bella Vie Interiors there’s no need to worry. We guide each of our clients, step by step, through a seamless process to ultimately create their dream home.

Our Passion - Elevate the Potential of Your Home

Our clients run the gamut of multi-residential and duplex builders to first time home renovators. And from those who already have complete architectural drawn plans but need assistance with their interior spaces, to those who are just starting the process.

But regardless of the purpose or stage of the project, our passion is always clear—to help enhance the lives of those families and individuals who will call the space home. We do that by helping realise the greatest potential of each home and by designing a space that allows those in it to experience their best life.

Lisa Alward - Bella Vie Interiors Owner

Lisa Alward - Founder & Interior Designer

Lisa was destined to be an interior designer. She has worked in the fashion, beauty and real estate industries—all careers focused on the beautiful things in life.

Her path to becoming an interior design consultant formally began in London when her youngest daughter was a baby. The beautiful life change of becoming a mum helped her see that it was also time for a career change. She needed to do something that she’d always had a passion for. And that was creating beauty.

For Lisa, Bella Vie Interiors has always been about creating a ‘beautiful life’. The business name was borne from an idea in her twenties and driven by her desire to create a beautiful life. ‘Bella’ inspired by a love of Italy and ‘Vie’ by a love of France.

Lisa loves a challenge and sets lofty goals. Early on in her career, she was determined to win a design award even though she’d only been in business just a few months. Thanks to a beautiful home and a beautiful client that we worked with and our amazing team, of course, this dream became a reality in 2017.

Lisa is a qualified interior designer with a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) Interior Design and a Diploma in Commercial Arts (Interior Design & Decoration). She’s also a member of the Design Institute of Australia and KBDI (Kitchen & Bathroom Designers Institute). Her most important role is, however, as mum to four children and one cheeky cavoodle. She’s also married to a man who’s shown her more of this beautiful world than she ever thought she’d see.

Introducing my new book… Beautiful Life

In this book, I’ll help lead you through the process of building your own ‘beautiful life’ – in a way that’s meaningful for you. I focus on practical solutions as well as pleasing aesthetics, in room-specific chapters that give expert advice for couples, families and empty nesters. I believe it’s these transitions through the stages of life that impact the way we use our homes.

MANLY HOUSE – PROJECT REVEAL

With ocean views and a relaxed lifestyle, it’s easy to see why our clients were attracted to this spacious Manly home. Having recently moved to Queensland this family knew they wanted to create a light and airy, modern farmhouse style home in their new coastal location. While the location was great, the double story home was dated and lacking in style.
