Bella Rustica Style & Design offers interior and exterior design services defined by a subtle, often whimsical signature borne of a romance with both nature and Italy & life on my seaside island.
I have an expertise in re-modeling having re-modeled four of my own homes (and am presently re-modeling a fifth home). Each home has appeared in at least one national design magazine; see Press page.
I draw from a palette of warm, subtle earthy hues incorporating the strong beauty of textures and the patina of woods, leathers, and natural fabrics alongside interesting, often one of a kind architectural elements. Personal style should reflect our values and lifestyle, and in some form, our passions. Color, however, is easily incorporated via accents.
We want our homes and the objects we fill them with to feel lived in with stories to tell... This cannot be hurried or it simply becomes forced. The cost of this service is often less expensive than a single regretful impulse purchase and will assist in avoiding those experiences.
When we achieve that degree of comfort within ourselves it is not practiced but an additional reflection of our personal style extended into our homes.
If you like my style, I can help you achieve a similar look with your signature attached. Part of creativity is being influenced by others . . . Let's get started !
