Hi my name is Heather and I am so thrilled that you decided to stop by Heather’s Bella Casas! I started this blog because my experience with buying and fixing up my first house. It was very fulfilling and made me realize I had a passion for Interior Decorating and Staging. Here I want to share that with you. I love everything about Interiors, staging, organization, gardening, cooking, and just family life in general. As a true home body I love to surround myself with beautiful, cozy, comfort, functional decoration, and delicious snacks from my garden.
I live in a small apartment just outside of Washington, DC. and I love decorating and organizing it alongside my amazing Husband Bobby and our Cat Sassafrass. A hobby of mine is finding local artists and incorporating their individual, unique, style into my small, quirky space. Sometimes, it can be challenging because I love a piece of art so much. So, I just have to have it and then find a way to incorporate it into my decor. It is a challenge that I really enjoy. I feel that your home should be a representation of you and your unique tastes.
In addition to all of that, I enjoy preparing homes for resale. Back in 2012, I bought a fixer upper for $325,000 just outside of the Washington DC area. That’s right, $325K got me a project. After a huge learning curve and a lot of work, it sold for $395,000 just three years later. It wasn’t even on the market for 24 hours before I got a full price offer! My house didn’t even make it to it’s own open house!!!
After working on that project, I knew this is what I wanted to do. So, I decided I had to find a way to put myself out there and share my passion with the world. That is how Heather’s Bella Casas was born. It is All Things about Life, Home, Interiors, and Family.
