Lisa helped organise my holiday home's interior design up along the coasts. We had our property built and developed by another team in Queensland whilst Bella Vie designed all the interiors, from kitchen to bedrooms. The process was seamless, from design, visualisation and construction. Lisa had organised all the communications between her designers and the contractors. We ultimately left the project in her hands with our set budget. She ensured the entire project was well within our assgined budget and the final outcome of our BNB rental holiday home was absolutely stunning. We can certainly see the results from the work she's done. Her services were simply, amazing!

Lisa has helped me with two projects (and hopefully a third soon!) I have found her to be a fantastic combination of personable and professional. She instinctively understood what I needed along with what I was trying to achieve. We are really pleased with the outcome. She worked within our budget and no doubt saved us from some costly mistakes had we attempted to do it ourselves. I have no hesitation with recommending Lisa and her team.

We used Lisa and her team to design a a full interior renovation for our house in Ashgrove. We knew what we liked but were struggling to turn our ideas into reality. Lisa providing us with exactly the look and the options we were searching for. She was able to channel our aesthetic perfectly as well put forward suggestions that we hadn't yet considered. Everything went perfectly and we can't be happier with the result. Communication and consultation was fantastic and the drawings provided gave us a great indication of what the final result would be. When we do this again, Bella Vie will be the first place we call.

I engaged with Bella Vie to do the interior design on a large renovation of our character Queenslander. Although I know what I like, I had no idea how blend together the more modern timeless elements while showing respect to the original details that make a Queenslander so beautiful. Lisa is incredibly good at drawing out all the information she needs from you. Our initial meeting felt like a conversation with a friend but I realised later that she had subtly asked such detailed questions that there was virtually no details we didn’t cover. Lisa and her team absolutely nailed it. They were always incredibly efficient, thoughtful and friendly, talked me through their reasons for different choices and happily changed details I was less sure of. I would happily recommend Bella Vie and look forward to working with them again.

We hired Lisa and the team at Bella Vie to design our new kitchen, en-suite and walk in robe joinery. From the moment we met Lisa she understood our vision and aesthetic (despite us not quite knowing how to put it into words ourselves). Lisa was able to translate this vision into a design we loved from the moment we saw it. Capturing all the special touches, along with being highly functional. If you want a designer that understands you and can translate that it to a beautiful and functional space, you can’t look past Bella Vie.

Lisa and the Bella Vie team provided amazing support in helping us “fix” some space and layout issues with our old Queenslander. They came up with a great design and 3D render, and helped with the selection of colours, finishes, materials, flooring and the lot! Highly recommended for all those older inner -city Brisbane homes!

Lisa took the time to understand our needs, priorities and budget to design a fabulous space for our initial upstairs renovation. And we have again engaged Lisa to design our downstairs space. Having someone we could trust and someone that delivered made our renovation stress free and a thoroughly enjoyable experience! Impeccable design style and eye for detail. A pleasure to work with - and would recommend in a heartbeat!

Why Work With Bella Vie Interiors?

When you’ve chosen to work with Bella Vie Interiors, you’ve chosen to work with a professional, one of the best in field. Therefore, you can be certain you’ll be in the most capable hands to get your interior decoration service requirements.

The Design Process

We provide clarity, confidence, and creativity as we walk you through each step of your interior decoration process for an easy and enjoyable experience.

The first step is to schedule a complimentary discovery call. This gives you the chance to get an understanding of how we work, and who we are, while we get to know you and the scope of your project.

Knowing the next steps will help put your mind at ease and build your confidence that our service is the right fit for you and your project.


Once we decide to work together we have our first formal consult. A 2 hour Design Consultation where we talk about what you do and don’t love about your space, how you live, and importantly, how you want to live.

Design Consultation Fee: $660

At this stage on-site measurements and photos are taken, and a final design assessment is made to form the client brief.

During the design phase we gather and refine ideas to develop a unique design concept for your home. This is when the bulk of the creative thinking, detailed documenting and costing for your project takes place. We present you with final design drawings, specifications and estimates taking your project a step closer to being a reality. This is charged at a fixed cost, determined by your scope and requirements. 

Following approval of the designs, we move into the Execute Phase. Design fees are charged slightly differently here, as an ongoing rate. This stage includes;

  • Liaising with all trades and suppliers on the design, timeline and budget
  • Procurement of all finishes, materials, fittings, furniture and soft furnishings
  • Regular site visits to oversee any build works
  • Co-ordinating the delivery of all items
  • A final reveal at the very end when all the furniture is in place
  • Managing any defects or damage
  • Providing you with all the relevant care, warranty and maintenance info for each product specified

Finally, on installation day, the design becomes a reality. Now you can simply begin enjoying a space that is truly you.
