Bella Décor and Design ... Providing function and beauty to your home, wardrobe, and professional environments.
My name is Anne Frances Mills; I am creative, resourceful, independent, detailed orientated, passionate, curious, and intuitive. I possess a great love for beautiful things, and for the art of beautifying. Other people have described me as artistic, stylish, enthusiastic, hardworking, engaging, mystical, elegant, and impassioned.
As a designer, I take great pride in understanding my customers' requirements. My approach involves getting to know my clients on a personal level to identify and define their style preferences in order to create purposeful, beautiful, well-designed spaces.
My passions include: Decor/Design, Re-purposing, Fashion, Food & Wine, Traveling, Shopping, Yoga, Reading, Horseback Riding, Boxer Dogs (I have two, Bella & Bosco) Nature, Music, Inner Peace, The Ocean, Laughter, Joy, Love, and all of God’s Wonderful Blessings and Miracles.
Bella Décor and Design offers a wide range of interior decorating and design solutions to meet both residential and commercial needs in and surrounding the Tidewater, VA area. My company also offers image/wardrobe consulting specializing in men's fashion. Having a life-long passion for design and fashion, as well as obtaining professional training from QC Design School, I am committed to creating pleasing and well thought-out spaces, as well as wardrobe consulting services with great emphasis on attention to detail, exceptional client services and open and honest communication.
Bella, my charming boxer, was the inspiration for the name of my business. Bella in Italian (my ethnic heritage) means “Beautiful”. It is my personal mission to make each client’s project “Molto Bella” (Very Beautiful)!
I genuinely enjoy working with people. I find great pleasure in creating stylish interiors, and male wardrobe consulting services, tailored to suit individual tastes that are not only beautiful and functional, but also pleasing to the mind, body and spirit. My philosophy to being a successful designer and wardrobe consultant is listening and understanding my clients’ desires. I believe this is fundamental to the process of producing meaningful, personalized solutions. To me, a home and a wardrobe are the ultimate reflections of personality, and interiors and fashion echo unique individuality.
Having worked 15 years in the Information Technology field as a Project Manager and Account Manager, I have proven expertise in strategic planning, interpersonal communication skills, attention to detail, project management, coordination of vendors & contractors, production deadlines, budget adherence and most importantly, exceeding customer’s expectations. The business skills and best practices I have acquired over the years, in conjunction with my creative proficiencies, have enabled me to gain a competitive edge in the décor/design and fashion professions.
