La Bella Vie Interiors Roswell, GA

An Interview with of Vikki Werbalowsky of La Bella Vie Interiors

Interior designer Vikki Werbalowsky has been leading la bella vie (the beautiful life) since opening for business under the same name more than a dozen years ago. After gathering inspiration from across the globe by her many years of travel, she decided to bring home the culture of artistry to the Atlanta area by creating Roswell, Georgia’s most celebrated full service design studio. At REstyleSOURCE, we celebrate local businesses every single day but are especially excited to highlight one of our favorites just in time for this year’s Small Business Saturday on November 28th….a great reminder of the faces and hearts behind each business as you SHOP LOCAL! If your own space is in need of a “beautiful life” upgrade, we suggest consulting with the team at La Bella Vie. REstyleSOURCE checked in with Vicki for more of her background, inspiration, and of course, beautiful photos from previous design projects and from inside this stunning showroom!

When did you open your store? I opened my store in Roswell in the spring of 2002.

How did you get started in the business? I have been in design since birth and an entrepreneur since I was 18 years old. It just seemed natural to open a store that incorporates both of my passions.

What do you love about owning the shop? I love having the ability to initiate change immediately. Your business will speak to you, and if you listen to it you will be able to move in the natural direction of the consumer.

What do you find to be the most challenging part of the business? The most challenging part of the business is simply keeping up with it. I often find myself trying to catch up. The ebb and flow is impossible to predict at complete accuracy so you really have to let go of total perfection and just enjoy the process.

Do you have any favorite pieces in the store right now? Having exposure to so many beautiful things it is hard to nail down a favorite piece as they are ever-changing!

LBVVikki’s Entertaining Tips

“I love to entertain! I set my intention on my guests’ comfort as my first priority and everything seems to fall into place from there. I like my gatherings to have an organic feel to them: not too fussy, but simply beautiful with lots of laughter. I am very particular about the quality of the experience. So, I pay close attention to flow, lighting, and music.”

What inspires you? Great design and creative beauty inspires me! I love when I see ordinary things reimagined into something beautiful.Creativity brings me such joy that I can’t imagine a life without it! It is as important to me as the air I breathe. I am surrounded by creative beautiful people and it is just how I like it. It is more important to me who you are in the world and your passion for service then your résumé.

What sets your business apart from online shopping? There is a feeling in our store that could never be felt in an on line only presence. You can touch and feel the fabrics and enjoy the camaraderie and the family style atmosphere.Everyone on our staff is well versed in the products we represent and can help you with your design decisions.
