About Us

Bella’s Gone Home is a family-run business founded in 2017 by Bella. Following her diagnosis with Parkinson’s which forced her to give up her career as a lawyer, Bella followed a family trajectory (her brother Charlie is founder of homeware brand Loaf) by turning a passion for property renovation and sourcing art and eclectic home furnishings - into a successful interior design and homeware retail business. The company has since expanded to include Bella’s husband Ian, daughter Orla and a small but expanding team of interior designers and stylists. Bella’s Gone Home is focused on creating relaxed, unprecious homes full of beautiful things. The team put their hearts and souls into sourcing art; furnishings and architectural antiques recycling and reusing wherever they can. They look for quality and craftsmanship with the knowledge that if something has already lasted 100 years it will probably withstand an army of kids, animals and badly behaved adults. They believe that a home should be filled with beautiful things that you can feel good about; it should smell gorgeous and have great music, and that their clients just have to add the people.

What services do you provide?

Interior Design, Consulting and Staging

How would you describe your style?

"Our style is driven by colour and inspiration often starts with a painting or the colours from a piece of vintage fabric. Our idea of heaven is a day at the Salvage Fair; we have a warehouse brimming with antique Delft tiles; copper sinks; French doors with etched glass - which we combine with contemporary fabrics and artwork. Our style is contemporary but cosy and focused on the reality of our client's actual lives. All our products are either recycled or if new they are ethically sourced. We believe that you should love your home and everything in it should be high-quality, unique, and built to last a lifetime. This is exactly what we deliver at Bella’s Gone Home."

Please describe a recently completed project or tell us about the bespoke service that you offer

"A recent project which we loved working on was for a couple of empty-nesters from outside London who had bought a 2 bedroom maisonette in Notting Hill to have some fun at weekends and holidays. Our brief was to update the interiors so that they had a contemporary Portobello feel and create a roof terrace that was low maintenance; beautiful and cool; we were given the keys and got on with it.  We put together a new colour scheme - sourced furniture and art; bidding online at art auctions across the globe to find beautiful artworks at competitive prices that meant something to the owners. We sourced a beautiful picture of the ski slopes, where the homeowner skied as a child, by celebrated Italian photographer Massimo Vitalli which hangs alongside vintage French paintings and antiqued mirrors. We sourced materials; furniture and flooring and recruited celebrated garden designers (and long time collaborators) Boyd and Grey;  (Lucy Boyd was the head gardener at celebrated Petersham Nurseries) to create a fun low maintenance space."
