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.
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.
