The first time I watched an iMovie made by my then seven year old daughter, I was amazed. How can a seven year old make a trailer for a movie? I wanted her to make me one for Bella Vie Interiors.
So this morning, after months of watching her iMovies about pugs, cats and unicorns, I suggested she make one about Bella Vie Interiors. I showed her my website and answered a few questions and away she went. She even knew the client names for each project. Amazing what she's remembered from conversations about my work.
I think I might hire her... what do you think?
A unique project with pared back, industrial interiors and finishes that look like they belong on a building site make a statement in this Canberra AirBNB.
Builders D3 Projects approached Bella Vie Interiors to design and document the industrial style kitchens, bathrooms and bedroom storage for this very unique property in Canberra. The client's brief was to create a pared back, industrial interior with a finishes that looked raw and unfinished.
The client was very hands on with the selection of fixtures and fittings and had a clear vision from the outset. Bella Vie Interiors designed custom joinery from black ply and timber with simple drilled holes to the fronts instead of handles. The raw timber look tile makes a dramatic statement in the wet areas. Brace board, corrugated iron and concrete are used extensively throughout to create the desired aged, industrial aesthetic.
The builders worked very closely with the client to ensure every detail met their vision to create a unique interior to suit their needs.

A minimalist interior designed by Bella Vie Interiors, complements the crisp, clean exterior of this new Passive house in Googong.
Situated in the self-contained township of Googong, this Passive House makes a bold statement with its monochromatic colour scheme and a skillion roof soaring high into the sky. Its glazed facade designed to capture the winter sun, warming highly polished concrete floors and basking the living areas with sunlight during the cooler months.
Triple glazed windows with zipscreen external shade blinds, allow seamless integration between indoors and outdoors, providing privacy, blocking UV rays and keeping insects out.
Bella Vie Interiors created a minimalist interior scheme to suit the client's brief for a home with clean lines and a neutral colour palette.
A black linear custom pendant hangs over a simple concrete kitchen island. Dark, minimalist bathrooms create a dramatic contrast to the crisp white walls throughout the living areas and bedrooms.
With the building works completed, the client can now move into a new home, enjoying the benefits of living in a Passive House as Winter approaches.
