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.

Know your curtain styles

Wave curtains

The latest trend in curtaining. A wave tape is attached to the top of the curtain that allows the fabric to follow the wave pattern in an ‘S’ shape. Unlike more conventional curtains, there are no pleats in the wave style. This creates a very modern and minimalistic look which works beautifully in modern designed homes. In order for wave curtain to keep their shape we suggest that lighter fabrics are used to maximise the effect. 



Pinch pleat curtains

Beautiful compliment to formal lounges and luxurious bedrooms. The fabric is pinched in intervals along the top of the curtain to create swaths of fabric which flow down to the floor. The pleats are sewn into the fabric and unlike a pencil pleat cannot come undone. The overall effect is a neat and fancy curtain which is perfect for heavier curtaining (including blockout curtains). Pinch pleats can either be in doubles or triples dependant on your preference. These curtains can be complemented with metal rings which slide over a full round pole.  Another option to complete the look is by using a gilded or wooden valance to cover the curtain rail. We offer these valances in wide variety of colours/textures and materials.

Eyelet curtains

Eyelet curtains are one of the options. Eyelet curtains are very fashionable and make a dramatic feature of a window thanks to the deep folds of fabric, which run in uniform lines from top to bottom. Eyelet curtains always hang from a pole, which is threaded through metal rings.

Inverted / reversed pleats

Inverted box pleated drapes have the fullness of the pleat on the back of the drape which creates a flat drapery face suitable for contemporary interior design. Box pleated drapes are typically stationary panels with clean, unbroken lines that are wonderful in silk, a lightweight velvet and everything in between.
