Jamie Cochran

Principal | Senior Designer

Bella Traverse Design first launched in 2007 providing home staging services to home sellers and real estate professionals in Muskegon, Holland and Grand Rapids MI. The results were fast, profitable sales. She was working on her Bachelor Degree in Interior Design, with a minor in Architecture while running her staging business.

Soon after graduating, Jamie began to specialize in interior design. She partnered with home contractors, stagers and other design professionals, including kitchen and bath showrooms around the world to provide their clients and DIY homeowners with a visual design plan prior to their next design or reno project.

Her design projects include residential plans of all sizes within a variety of spectrums (kitchen, bath, formal living rooms, master bedrooms, entertainment rooms, outdoor living areas), as well as commercial projects such as a brew pub in Vermont, a medical supply company in St. Louis, and a Mexican Restaurant in Ohio.

Jamie especially loves working with local MI clients, providing full service interior design to homeowners who want to love their space.She is also a sought after e-designer, for clients outside of the West Michigan area, allowing her design partners (stagers, showrooms, and contractors) to add this packaged service to their offerings around the world.
