Hello and welcome to Bella Traverse Design. I am so glad you are here! My name is Jamie Klecka, lead interior designer and owner, located in Muskegon, Mi. I started this company in 2008 as a Home Stager, while I was working on my Bachelor Degree in Interior Design. My company has evolved over the years into a boutique design firm specializing in renovations and all things Airbnb.
A few things about me-I’m feisty. I try to hide it during our initial consultation, but it always seems to come out…so you’ve been warned 🙂 I am very transparent and don’t sugar coat things. A lot of designers and contractors are afraid to talk about budgets. Not me! It’s impossible to run a renovation project successfully without discussing your budget. Big or small, we’ve all got one!
A renovation project can be (is) a stressful situation. I create a detailed design plan for you and your contractor. There is so much to know, decide and choose. A plan will keep you on track and on budget. Don’t have a contractor in mind? That’s ok! I have a team of contractor’s and subcontractors that treat your home like their own. Problems are always discovered once we open up the walls. If you’ve watched any shows on HGTV, you know what I mean! We will walk you through and explain what we found, and solutions we’ve come up with.
Airbnb’s are my passion! I love to design them, get them set up and ready for guests, listed online with professional photos, and co-hosted. My maintenance and turnover team are as committed as I am to making your short term rental as profitable as possible.
Senior Interior Designer
"Jamie was great through the whole process! I had just purchased a home and wanted to renovate it to have a coastal theme. I hired Jamie to help me select paint colors, furniture, and some accessories for the house. She listened to my vision and then made it happen. We were in contact throughout the process and she provided me with examples of ideas or furniture pieces so she could get the complete package right. She is so easy to work with and did everything (and more) that I had hoped for. She turned my buyer's remorse into a home I love!"
"Jamie was great to work with, and she did a great job! I would recommend Bella Traverse very highly. Jamie communicated to me throughout the process and everything was done exactly the way she said it would be......and it was done on schedule!"
"Bella Traverse Design was an integral part in redesigning my office. Jamie planned new colors, new floor plan, new window coverings and new accessories which greatly improved the look and feel of my accounting office. Bella Traverse Design handled the project as a whole with professionalism and an attitude toward pleasing the client."
"We hired Bella Traverse Design to stage our home that had been on the market for almost 2 years. We had an offer within 2 months of Jamie completing the staging. She presented her ideas in a quick and professional manner and made implementing her ideas very simple with well organized and detailed suggestions. She was timely and reliable and was very approachable with questions and concerns. Her communication was superb and there were no hidden costs or surprises. I plan on having her assist me in some future design projects."
"BellaTraverse design did an awesome job of getting my house ready for sale and staging the house after I applied the suggestions and paint colors which were recommended. The house sold in less than 4 weeks! Great job by Jamie. I have requested that she do her majic on my new house. The service and professionalism are first rate."
"She was exceptionally receptive to my feedback and revisions were completed on or ahead of schedule. A complete professional that I would hire again without hesitation."
"Jamie was very responsive and easy to work with. Once she got a feel of our expectations she was able to run with it and came up with some great designs."
