A few weeks ago I was invited to enjoy breakfast in a rather unusual space… albeit a very beautiful one… the new Isabelina store in Cavendish Square!
Isabelina, meaning “Queen of all butterflies”, epitomizes luxury and exclusivity.
I’ve often popped in to this pretty shop when passing, but this time I was able to spend much more time browsing the beautiful décor, lighting, furniture and gifting collections.
The shop’s decor is a perfect blend of contemporary and classic with gorgeous items including mirrored furniture, upholstered furniture in luxurious fabrics, unique chandeliers and rose gold accents.
What first struck me about the space was the incredible selection of lighting… traditional chandeliers and contemporary hanging lights fill the space alongside beautiful bevelled mirrors, hand-carved wooden tables, high-gloss resin furniture and high-shine mirrored furniture.
I adored the selection of unique painted vases in stunning autumnal colours and the incredible silk flower arrangements – in fact they were so life-like that I was convinced they were real for most of the morning until I got a bit closer… such a pretty way to inject some much needed colour to your living space during the grey days of winter!
All collections at Isabelina are designed and sourced by the owners Francis and Judith Matthews. Pop over to the Isabelina website to follow Judith’s blog where she shares her design inspiration, décor tips and new products in-store.
Isabelina currently have four stores based in Cape Town, George and Johannesburg, with two more stores opening up in Johannesburg shortly. Be sure to pop in next time you’re in the market for a unique gift or looking to redo the decor of your home. It truly is a treasure trove!
