Darla Kurtz

Darla, a northeast Ohio native, founded a company called Bellisimo Designs in 2009 after working for more than 18 years in various trades within the design field.

Darla’s passion for design and excellence inspired the start of her business. Her design and consulting skills are fresh and unique and her commitment to quality work and customer service is unparalleled. All those virtues came to her from words instilled by her father: “If you’re going to do something, do it right or don’t do it at all.”

Darla’s work process is analytical and thorough and her ability to take a vision for a project and transform it into a reality will leave you amazingly inspired.
