A Visit to Bella Home
We love telling community stories about local businesses. So we stopped by BELLA HOME in the heart of Ridgefield to check out their gorgeous boutique. It's filled with home goods, accessories and children gifts.
When we took a tour of the Bella Home, we spoke with the owner, Nicole Interlandi, who gave us some holiday gift ideas and answered a few fun questions, including the one everyone wants to know... Who designs your gorgeous windows?!
1: What are some of your best holiday gifts for under $50.00?
We have great gifting pieces for everyone in the family under $50. Whether it is a Frasier Fir candle for your best friend, a pair of fun earrings for your mom, stylish but fun socks for the men in your life, or a new stuffed animal for the kiddos. This year we especially have some great stocking stuffers that anyone from grandparents to teenagers would like!
For the girls: A cozy sweater candle paired with body wash infused buffer
For the guys: Golf socks comes with the golf mug and some sports trivia to test the whole family’s knowledge
For the kids: Reindeer stuffy and the hottest new Tonie “The Grinch” *Full array of Tonie boxes and figures available only at Bella Home locally
For the host: Hand painted Ridgefield ornament (by Annie Caravelli) and 06877 wine glass
2: Who designs your gorgeous windows?
I design the windows but I have a lot of help executing them! My sister, Lisa, is usually climbing around in there as I am pointing and directing on just the right placement. It is fun to do though, to come up with a theme and then bring it to life.
3: How long have you owned BELLA HOME?
I have owned Bella Home for 2 years now along with my sister who is a partner. But Bella Home in some ways has always been part of the family. I actually worked at Bella Home during it’s first 2 years being open when I was in College and home in Ridgefield for the summers. My mom went on to help out in the store, when I went off to NYC to start a career in Media. We got to know Robin Weber, who bought the store from the first owners, as a close family friend over the years. And then in 2020 upon moving back to Ridgefield due to Covid, Robin and I started talking and it was just the right timing for both of us to transition our lives. As Robin has said, “it felt like a Hallmark Movie story with a happy ending for everyone”.
And we agree - Bella Home looks like it's straight out of a Hallmark movie! When you start your holiday shopping, be sure to visit this local shop.
