About Us

Our Team

Isabey Interiors is an award winning design company based in Kelowna, BC, specializing in both residential and commercial designs. That is what we do, but not who we are. We are a team of people who care about our projects. We approach each design with the same objective – to ensure our clients’ needs are met, and to do what we can to make it an enjoyable process. Your project should reflect your needs and who you are – that is what will make you fall in love with your space.

There are notable differences in working with Isabey Interiors. You will work with more than one designer on a renovation project or new home build. The entire process is considered at the very beginning – landscape design, furniture planning and more. This will provide you with the best result for your project.

The Isabey Collective is the evolution of 4 companies coming together, creating a complete home solution. These additions now bring the process full-circle for Trisha and her clients by servicing the entire build, from concept of construction drawings to complete furniture and decor packages.

Trisha continues to specialize in mid to high-end residential projects, with scope ranging from minor redecorating to major renovations and brand-new construction. Trisha is a regular columnist in Reno & Decor magazines, and the team’s work is regularly featured in both local and national design and lifestyle publications. Always looking to expand on her knowledge and experience, she continues to grow seeking out interesting projects throughout Vancouver and Canada that will challenge the skill and range of her and the design team.
