We believe that beauty truly is in the eye of the beholder and encourage you to be bold and brave – whatever you are seeking to achieve. Each of Sabella Interiors’ services is provided by experts, from well-known international fabric houses to smaller, locally based British talent,


Joanna, our creative director, will work closely with you to establish your personal project brief and follow through to ensure it is achieved.

Her passion is creating harmonious surroundings that reflect your personality. She’ll encourage you to be yourself and embrace your personal style. Good design is not always about spending money but doing more with what you have. Whatever you choose – whether it’s a full revamp or a couple of cushions, she’ll help you achieve a home you’ll love.

Fabrics and wallpaper

Home is not just something you sense. It’s in the texture, style and colour of the fabrics and wallpaper used. We have a privileged relationship with companies that have enviable reputations for quality and design, with a beautiful and varied range of fabrics and wallcoverings, some of which can be manufactured specifically for our clients’ design brief.

Soft furnishings

Our talented seamstresses create the most prettiest, hand finished curtains, blinds, cushions and other accessories. We also supply a range of specialist blinds, ideal for specific locations. Between us, we will achieve for you the stunning window treatments, fitted and dressed to perfection.

Lampshades and lighting

Lighting can make or break your design brief and we work closely with a range of suppliers to bring you stunning lighting options. If you want any texture from delicate silks to rich velvets, unusual colours or exotic shapes, our skilled lampshade and chandelier makers can also create fabulous, bespoke features, unique to your home.


With years of experience and a range of skills including redecoration, restoration and plastering, our decorators can also carry out specialist work such as gilding. Decorating is so much more than just painting and hanging wallpaper. Preparation is key, as is the appropriate application and composition and our highly competent team has the knowledge and expertise essential to achieve the perfect end result.

“Joanna has a very good eye for detail and is willing to go the extra step to give a project the wow factor. Her unique use of paint colours and fabrics gives the room an expensive look, while coming in on budget. Joanna is always willing to jump into her painting overalls and get her hands on a roller, which allows her to understand the products she’s working with. I find her very easy to work with and she’s a good communicator.”

We seek to source anything for our clients from a much-desired antique to a state of the art bathroom fitting, from the perfect fireplace rug to a bespoke stained glass window. We have many years’ experience finding all kinds of unusual accessories such as gold-leaf poles and finials (even a matching pair) to an original stained glass window.


From basic woodwork repairs, through installation and restoration, to creative design-work such as bespoke under-stair units, our carpenters deliver. We have specialist furniture makers who can design and create personalised chairs, footstools, tables, units and more – handmade to your personal specification. They can also restore much-loved items.

Building work

We have access to several highly skilled teams of builders, as well as kitchen and bathroom suppliers and installers who work with us on projects of all sizes and who are always on hand for advice on structural requirements.

Public speaking

Joanna is a regular speaker at The Cliveden Club at Cliveden House in Berkshire, where she teaches members about interiors. Her informative talks so far have covered the best use of paints, ways to mix fabrics and textures, through to luxury Christmas present wrapping and how to fold napkins and lay tables.

As an ambassador for Cumbria Crystal in 2015, Joanna also created a stunning display of the Downton Collection from TV’s Downton Abbey at Cliveden.
