About Us

Isabella Interiors was launched by Emren (Emma) Marais. She finds her inspiration from the concept of Hygge (pronounced hoo-gah).

Hygge is a Danish word meaning “cozy time”. It has many interpretations and Emma describes it this way…“Hygge inspires joyful living, simple pleasures, togetherness, peace and warmth. It celebrates family and friends and taking time for relaxing and recharging. Hygge embraces community and the everyday; it is sharing a meal at the kitchen table and sitting quietly by a roaring fire on a rainy night. I feel a deep connection to the concept of Hygge and use it to create spaces for living; spaces that help my clients fall in love with their homes.”

Isabella Interiors offer custom-made curtains, blinds and interior design services.

About Isabella Interiors

Hi – I am Emren Marais, founder of Isabella Interiors and is inspired by joyful living, simple pleasures, togetherness, peace and warmth. Or Hygge (pronounced hoo-gah) – celebrates family and friends and taking time for relaxing and recharging. Hygge embraces community and the everyday; it is sharing a meal at the kitchen table and sitting quietly by a roaring fire on a rainy night. I feel a deep connection to the concept of Hygge and use it to create spaces for living; spaces that help my clients fall in love with their homes.

I am the daughter of a Karoo sheep farmer and live in Stellenbosch. With a background in fashion design, I enjoy playing with fabrics, textures and style. 

The “lived in” look is my signature look; my passion is to create elegant, yet comfortable spaces.

When I am not designing beautiful spaces, I enjoy reading, spending time with my architect partner and enjoying the winelands with lovely friends visiting markets, shows, painting and recently joined the Stellenbosch urban sketchers. making memories and enjoying a beautiful blessed life.

What we do

Custom Made Curtains

We can create curtains in any style to suit your specific requirement.

Roller Blinds

Available in a wide variety of privacy enhancing, light filtering and blockout fabrics (pvc) to complete any room.

Roman Blinds

Roman blinds can grace any room with old or modern décor, and they still would not look out of place. They are also very easy to operate and convenient to clean.

Panel Blinds

Panel blinds make an excellent alternative to vertical blinds. Perfect for sliding doors, folding doors and large windows. Panel Blinds can also be used to create decorative panels or room dividers that are both effective and attractive.

Vertical Blinds

Vertical Blinds are easy to use and a sleek and simple option for any window or patio door dimension. They allow perfect light control or privacy as the vertical louvres/blades can be rotated through 180 degrees by a simple chain operation until the perfect result is achieved.

Venetians Blinds

One of the benefits of Venetian blinds is that you can decide how much light enters the room. If the room is heavily lit, you can merely adjust the shades by turning the rode until you get the desired about of light.
