Owner Joanna Harvey founded Sabella Interiors in the village of Sonning in Berkshire three years ago.

Today, Joanna and her talented, handpicked team offer elegant and sophisticated interior design for home owners locally, in London and in the Home Counties.

No interior design challenge is too small or too large. We can find you the smallest bespoke cushion right up to redesigning entire house interiors – and we’ll do it with imagination, flair and our signature attention to detail with a quality finish.

Are you looking for a one-off house decoration skill? Perhaps you know what lighting you’d like but not how it fits in with an existing scheme? Maybe you have a strong design vision for transforming your home’s ground floor, but are daunted at the scale of the work?

Joanna will skilfully and personally guide you through any size of project, bringing in our own trusted craftspeople and other contractors as required.
Let us remove the stress of searching for the right materials, textures and colours and allow Joanna to spend time with you, discovering your preferences and opening your mind to the best your home can be; she will deliver a vision tailored to your taste.

“We didn’t have a clue where to start when we decided our house needed redecorating. Joanna was quickly able to assess our requirements, personality, style and taste, and incorporate them into a fabulous design for each room, while keeping our budget in mind.”

Joanna traces her passion for creating beautiful homes to a childhood captivated by the glamour, stagecraft and settings of TV and film.

She was trained in curtain-making and drapery by best-selling author and curtain-maker Lady Caroline Wrey, followed by expert tuition in skilled and detailed sewing from Sue Hazell.

The attention to detail Joanna has learned throughout her career is central to Sabella’s ethos and extends to our team of valued craftspeople whose skills are a joy to watch as Joanna’s vision for your home unfolds.

Joanna and Sabella’s dedicated studio team, Amanda and Margot, look after our clients and all members of the team. They co-ordinate the project brief, manage time and budget constraints, follow up orders, schedules and deadlines, and keep all parties up to date at every stage. Communication and working together is key to success for everyone.


To achieve the best home for you, our team works closely together and with the utmost integrity. Each person at Sabella Interiors plays a significant part in achieving the home you desire, from Joanna, our creative director, to whoever is making the tea!

We’re proud to use master craftspeople, including cabinet makers, gilders, heritage decorators, lime mortar plasterers, sash window restorers, stained glass makers, lighting and media and audio specialists.

Whatever the craft, we will find an artisan to achieve your brief. To find out more about our talented makers, explore our services.


We use high quality materials and fabrics to meet clients’ project briefs, and are privileged to have close working relationships with large and small companies. Our successes are all down to talented people who drive for perfection. At times, we are permitted early access to new collections and design ideas, which we pass on to our clients, giving previews to the latest trends, colours and styles.

“Sabella Interiors works to exacting standards and demands the highest quality from the tradesmen who work with them. Joanna ensures we’re all able to deliver the best results using good quality materials, organising each detail so we can produce a professional finish.”
