Melissa and Nancy welcome you to their creative collaboration. They created Belle Vie after realizing they shared the same passion in life of remodeling, designing, decorating, creating and styling. They wanted their passion of helping people's visions come to life to become a real business. A business they would love working at every day. A business that made them a team.

They now guide clients in the Bay Area through the creative process of remodeling or building a home. They will be with you every step of the way from the flooring to the roof selections, essentially from the ground up.

If you have purchased a home in the Bay Area they are also able to guide you through decorating your home with furnishings and accessories to transform it into “home”. They also welcome the opportunity to update your current home to give it a whole new life.

They look back now and wonder why they waited so long to create Belle Vie. It is in their DNA to create. In the back of their minds they had always known it, others had known it and maybe they needed their hearts to tell them and that is when they knew it was time. This is their time and they can’t wait to spend it with you!

Melissa Cahoon

Melissa has been transforming spaces for as long as she can remember. She has had a long-time passion for design – from mood boards for her childhood room, to designing her first apartment and places for friends in her young adolescent years, and following into her later adult life as she moved into new homes and built spaces for both herself and her larger network. Melissa teamed up with Nancy in early 2016, and prides herself on pulling spaces together using both old and new pieces for a cohesive look. Together, Melissa & Nancy’s goal is to help their clients achieve the best version of their overall vision by building spaces that are timeless, comfortable, and enjoyable for years to come.
