Spring has sprung with a newly designed BellaTrends — now featuring an outstanding project showcasing design features to inspire change in your home or business.
Thanks to your very appreciated support, Bella Designs was awarded “Best of Houzz 2018” in Service. This is our second “Best of Houzz” Service award and we couldn’t be prouder. Click the link to see the award-winning projects.
Now, let’s get started with this issue’s featured project. The photos below reflect how furniture and accessories are the finishing touch of any project. Colors, styles and the use of mixed materials create a luxurious space.
It was a pleasure working with these clients and CairnsCraft Design & Remodel to transform the master bathroom into a light and airy spa-like retreat. Dark cabinets were removed and replaced with a gorgeous lighter cabinet with legs, dark tiles were replaced with light marble-style tiles, and the built-in tub was replaced with an elegant freestanding tub.
Incorporate these tips into your design efforts to awaken your senses:

1.Plants and Flowers

Add plants and flowers to bring in nature and awaken your sense of smell.


Be creative with small decorative tables to add interest and awaken your sense of sight.

3. Colorful Art

Choose colorful art to evoke an emotional response.

4. Sconces

Employ decorative lit sconces to add a feeling of warmth.

5. Rug

Use a rug for texture and awaken your sense of touch.

Diane’s take:
Accessories are the icing on the cake. While you certainly can have a functional space without them, using accessories allows you to bring creative joy to any space you decorate.
