We always welcome feedback as it allows us to continue to exceed our clients' expectations.

We are pleased to share what some of our clients have had to say with you ...
Lisa at Bella Vie Interiors made my dream kitchen a reality!

We had been looking to renovate our kitchen, en-suite and laundry for a couple of years and I knew we needed a designer to help us.

I had been hesitant to move forward as I thought a designer would push their design style and not take our budget into consideration.

When I met Lisa I knew straight away that she would listen to my thoughts and ideas. She designed a kitchen that not only suited our needs but it also matched and enhanced our house (parts of which were already renovated) and it was all within our budget.

I find renovating very stressful and talking to builders can be overwhelming when unsure about all the terminology.

Lisa’s extensive experience in the building industry really became evident when she met with my builder on numerous occasions and helped me to decipher what was being discussed.

I avoided making some incorrect and costly decisions as a result of her input! I am eternally grateful for Lisa’s input in every design decision we had to make.

I LOVE my new kitchen, en-suite and laundry. The flow of the kitchen has improved dramatically and I love all of the features.

We will be renovating again in the future and I will not do it without Lisa’s services in the future.

Lisa Alward designed my new kitchen and I am utterly delighted with the result.

Lisa is highly knowledgeable as to the available components of a new kitchen and what will and won't work. This, coupled with her enthusiasm in sharing her skills and knowledge make her a delight to work with.

Lisa went above and beyond the call of duty in meeting with me at tile and fabric shops, often at short notice, and at no extra charge.

My new kitchen is stylish, user friendly and in keeping with my own personal taste. I highly recommend Lisa to others who are seeking the assistance of an interior designer.

I had the pleasure of working closely with Lisa on a bathroom renovation. I loved that Lisa listened to what I wanted and then challenged me to step out of my comfort zone and try different tile colours and design ideas. The end design captured the look and feel I wanted to achieve perfectly.

Lisa was involved in every step in the project from design to completion. When issues or questions arose during the build Lisa stepped in and dealt with them promptly and professionally. This made the whole process stress-free.

The end result is a beautiful, functional, bathroom that complements the architectural period of our home. I feel grateful to have had her help.

Lisa did a wonderful job designing my new kitchen, laundry, mudroom and bathroom. She worked with my existing ideas and style preferences to design a beautiful yet functional space. Lisa problem-solved some of the trickier aspects of the renovation, coming up with practical solutions that improved flow and function in the area.

The end result is a beautiful space that has improved and added value to my house and makes managing family life so much easier. Lisa is easy to work with and completed the plans quickly and to a high degree of detail so I could envisage the transformation. I would highly recommend Lisa's services.

Lisa is a wonderful designer to work with. I had some fairly well-formed ideas that guided the look and feel of the project but Lisa was the one who made it all come together, who tweaked my ideas and suggested sources, tradesmen and options that made the final product a far more cohesive and polished one.

She was patient with our indecisive periods and supportive when we moved quickly.

She is personable and was a delight to have in our home. I would not hesitate to recommend her to others.

Lisa was a joy to work with when we bought our new house and needed direction on furniture and rug purchases, window dressings, paint selection and construction of an outdoor kitchen.

Her ideas were very much in tune with our needs and we have been delighted with the finished result.

She was able to work with her contacts to provide furniture designed especially for our needs (in the bedroom, living and family rooms and hallway) as well as selecting pieces from well-respected dealers and everything works together beautifully.

Lisa was also responsible for the design and installation of our outdoor kitchen and we have been very satisfied with the finished product.

In all dealings, Lisa has been highly professional and very easy to work with.

Nothing was a trouble, and her bright and bubbly personality made the process very pleasant.

I have no hesitation in recommending Bella Vie Interiors to anyone looking for a first class interior designer.

Lisa's experience and extensive industry contacts proved invaluable for updating our home and new extension. Her keen eye for detail and immediate understanding of our brief, budget and lifestyle made the design process immensely rewarding and far less overwhelming. The combination of Lisa's approachable nature, professional & industry experience seamlessly achieved the high-quality look we were trying to achieve. Belle Vie Interiors was an absolute pleasure to work with and highly recommend them for your next interior design project.

We have been engaged with Bella Vie Interiors for our own House in Canberra and found Lisa great. She provided valuable and quality advice to make us think and look at the things from different prospective. The end results are amazing, exactly what we wanted and the process was so smooth. Lisa's professionalism was so great that we hired her again for few more projects which we were building for our clients and they found her advice valuable and trustworthy. I will highly recommend Bella Vie Interiors to anyone who is looking for any Interior Designing Services. We miss her here in Canberra. Hope you will come back one day.

There are not enough beautiful words to express our gratitude and appreciation for your design that allowed the extraordinary transformation from a little poky kitchen to our now magnificent gourmet kitchen. We just LOVE it!

We consulted Lisa from Bella Vie interiors in the hope of replacing our small one-person kitchen with something that was more functional and allow both my husband and I could cook together. We wanted something contemporary, fresh and unique to an everyday day kitchen. Lisa worked with us to design a beautiful kitchen that met all of our requirements and more! Lisa was professional; she listened to our thoughts and needs during the design process.

When the kitchen was installed and we were finishing up the styling of the open plan kitchen, lounge and dining area we consulted Lisa to match up the cabinet colours to the glass splash-back and a feature wall. Just a quick phone call to Lisa and literally in a few minutes she came back with a perfect solution, colour name, how much to buy and from where.

Lisa is a talented professional and excellent at her job. Her expertise, focus, and creativity make her an enormous asset on any project but especially on our kitchen area. Her work ethic is impeccable and she has an outstanding ability to bring all the elements to a good result. She is a great pleasure to work with. Her attention to detail and breadth of experience allows you to relax and be confident in a high quality result.

We highly recommend Lisa and Bella Vie Interiors to everyone who is planning a new home or renovation. The new kitchen has simply transformed our house and we get so many positive comments about it from visitors. We love it!!!

Thank you so much Lisa!

Lisa Alward has been instrumental in the development of our new kitchen.

After buying our 1970s house we were eager to remove all the brown! Although we had many ideas, Lisa helped us to tailor our enthusiasm into a neutral style that is we just adored.

The new kitchen has dramatically increased the value of our property. I would strongly encourage you to use Lisa of Bella Vie Interiors.

'Find Your Feet'
After finally deciding to put a new kitchen in, we were overwhelmed with the decisions and ensuring the final product would be one we would be happy with. Lisa from Bella Vie Interiors came to our rescue.

Originally we were going to simply update the bench tops and doors / drawers etc, keeping the same floor plan but with Lisa's help we have a totally new design. The entire house has now changed. She selected colours and designs after listening to our priorities.

The kitchen looks fantastic. She has added many features I would not have even thought of.

Lisa was always available to answer questions and discuss options and invested the time needed to ensure we were happy with the final result.

When considering the investment of a new kitchen, it is a no brainer to use Lisa to ensure you get your dream kitchen.

The only problem is - now I want her advice on everything!

We engaged Lisa's services to assist us in designing joinery for our family room. We are thrilled with the final concepts she has drafted for us.

She listened carefully to our ideas and practical and functional needs as a large family and the final design incorporates function and style.

We thoroughly recommend the service of Bella Vie Interiors.
