About us

Bellevida Design (formerly Brightleaf Residential) began in 1999. Designing homes in North Carolina and Virginia, before settling in Tampa Bay in 2015.

As Tampa Bay’s premier design firm, our unique design process is unmatched. Our design development and permit-ready construction documents will help you successfully move through the various stages of your project. We will show you every square inch of your newly designed space virtually, in full-color and 360-degree views. Once the design and plans are complete, we’ll work with your contractor to make sure your home-building experience is as worry-free as possible!

One-of-a-kind Design

Each of our designs are 100% unique, no two are alike. We start from a blank drawing board for every project. Bellevida will make sure the aesthetic considerations meld with the structural requirements of the project and that the space is both livable and aesthetically pleasing.

Unlimited Revisions

In the 20 years we’ve been designing homes, we’ve never been able to design the home of someone’s dreams in 3 tries. We offer unlimited revisions because we want to be able to explore every possibility for your space and eliminate the ones that just don’t make sense. Better to figure out there’s a design element you don’t like while we’re working virtually, instead of once construction begins!


New to all this? Not to worry! We are here to help and answer any questions you may have. Our team has been in the home design and construction industry for decades, we can answer any questions you have about the possibilities for your home and location. We provide renovation feasibility analysis, an assessment of the home, as well as provide insight into the home’s potential. We also understand all of the codes, zoning, and restrictions that can come along with building in Florida. Let us help you navigate through the process more easily!

There is no waiting: We offer free consultations and same-day proposals. Once you move forward with Bellevida, we guarantee to get you on the schedule within 2 weeks. Once we get started, we work at your pace. We can move from design development into documentation phase in as little as 30 days.
