Bruno, Stacy Jansen’s beautiful English Bulldog takes his job as master greeter completely seriously at Bella Roba Boutique that is comfortably situated at 104 North Hale Street in Wheaton, Illinois. Bruno is as unique as the store’s concept. His darling under-bite smile tends to draw the customers into this high-style environment filled with luxurious clothing, artisan jewelry, antiques, custom painted and upholstered furniture, décor, gifts and some one-of-a-kind found items for the collector seeking such prizes.
Artist and owner, Stacy Jansen in conjunction with Mary Augustyn, design consultant, completely transformed the 1930’s restored building. The goods that they stock within are sourced locally and internationally. Each item is meticulously considered for its quality and beauty.
Previously the building housed children’s shoes. Now it is considered to be the most beautiful new building in Wheaton. It has custom-designed “Juliette” balconies, European shutters and fluttering awnings. From the moment you step into the store, you know you have entered an actual artistic wonderland!
Stacy Jansen conceptualizes art like no other. She is a renowned jewelry designer that works with precious and semi-precious stones. Each piece is crafted by her own hands. This extraordinarily talented woman also paints. She features her work on bold, modern canvases displayed throughout the interior of the store.
Other unique items thoughtfully chosen for sale include Italian cashmere sweaters, French, hand-poured candles, furniture crafted from walnut, old iron and marble, antique books and steamer trunks, and a bounty of other treasures. Jansen selects only the most environmentally conscious solutions when considering her merchandise. Bruno agrees with all of Stacy’s selections. He pours over the designs as she carefully places them for sale around him.
Stacy also has two other helpers in her beautiful store. A smaller helper in the form of her Yorkshire Terrier and Stacy Jansen #2. The two women met, could not believe the irony of the situation, and are working together toward one purpose: offering their shoppers “Beautiful Things” of luxury and style in a stunning environment.
Stop in to see Bruno, the Bulldog with the winning attitude that patrons on the streets of Wheaton crowd around to meet. He will make certain that the Stacys get you everything that your heart desires and then some.
Dogs just seem to have a sixth sense when it comes to their human counterparts. The only thing that they want is to ensure a human’s happiness whether that comes in the form of serious or sentimental.
You will notice that this particular canine is obsessed with the fact that you are a happy shopper, because he will greet you at the door, lead you to the vast amount of wares for you to choose from, then he will relax on his pillow, giving you the opportunity to select for yourself everything that will fit your life to a ‘T.’ Bella Roba and Bruno are waiting for you! What are you waiting for?
