Unfortunately, there are fewer Artisan Companies left in the Midwest that specialize in Decorative Finishes.

The popularity of Wallpaper and the White/Gray/Black color trends limited the demand for Unique Art, applied by hand to walls and ceilings, resulting in many talented Artisan Businesses closing.

Founded in 2005, Bella Faux Finishes has been fortunate to stay busy through the years. We have a large Art Portfolio that features a wide variety of… “Color, Texture & Effect” samples.

Today, Think Bella is the Midwest leader in the application of Venetian Plaster, Italian Finishes, Decorative Finishes, Faux Finishes and Column Marbling. We have been invited to share our Art on so many unique Homes & Businesses, large and small, throughout the Midwest and Beyond…

Since 2005, Bella has been the leader in the application of imported  “Italian Venetian Plaster”. Through the years, Bella has been invited to share our Art on so many projects. Most recently Scottsdale, Arizona.  If you have a unique project and would like to share some ideas, we would love to meet with you.”

Our specialty is the historic application of Venetian Plaster imported from Italy. We have refined this technique with a “proprietary method” of applying each layer of plaster, resulting in a silky smooth, cool to the touch, final marble finish that truly looks and feels like a marble wall. No wax is needed to create this stunning effect. Note – We do apply a wax if the finish will need a higher level of protection from, high traffic, moisture or other possible elements.”
