About us


In the vibrant spring of 2023, a vision was realized as Belle Vie emerged on the scene, destined to reshape the way people experience home living by romancing the ordinary. Founded by Carmen Barnes, a passionate enthusiast of all things French and Italian, Belle Vie aimed to make the charm and elegance of European living accessible to everyone, transcending geographical boundaries and cultural barriers.

Carmen Barnes, a woman of creative spirit and relentless determination, had always been captivated by the allure of European living. From the cobbled streets of old-world villages to the lush vineyards of Tuscany, she found herself drawn to the intricate patterns, the warm colors, and the timeless designs that exuded a sense of nostalgia and comfort.

Carmen's own travels through the charming landscapes of Europe fueled her desire to bring this enchanting lifestyle to homes around the world. Belle Vie was born out of Carmen's desire to bring that warmth and character into every home, regardless of its location. Armed with a strong commitment to quality and an eye for detail, Carmen set out to curate a collection that encapsulated the essence of French and Italian provincial lifestyles. From the inviting pastel hues reminiscent of Mediterranean landscapes to the intricate patterns that told stories of tradition, each piece selected for Belle Vie's offerings carried a fragment of Europe's rich history.

With a clear vision and an unwavering passion, Carmen set out to create Belle Vie—a company that would redefine interior design by making European aesthetics accessible to a wider audience. Guided by her commitment to quality, authenticity, and a deep respect for the traditions that gave birth to these styles, Carmen sought to curate a collection that would embody the essence of European living.

In every Belle Vie creation, the heart of European living continues to thrive, reminding us all that beauty, history, and the warmth of a well-designed home know no boundaries.
