Celebrating America

The Fourth of July is coming up and it’s time to celebrate our wonderful country! Fireworks and hot dogs are customary, but you can also celebrate the USA by supporting products made in America. Here are a few of our favorites…

Recycled and sustainable woven throw blankets made from salvaged cotton clippings from industrial t-shirt manufacturers:


Aviva Stanoff pillows are hand crafted and printed using botanicals in her Brooklyn studio:


Peacock Alley is a line of luxury sheets and bedding made in the USA:


NEST candles are developed and poured in the USA (and smell amazing):


Erin (owner of Isabella) designed this chandelier through a Charleston-based lighting company:


Tritter Feefer is a furniture company in Georgia that makes custom, hand-crafted case goods:

Not only do we support products made in America, we also love to support companies and designers local to our state of North Carolina. Here are a few of our favorites..

This little glitter Nest is a beautiful keepsake from Goldbug Studios located in Raleigh, NC.


Meredith Jackson is a jewelry designer located here in Charlotte. Her studio is in the Villa, the same building Isabella is in! Here are some red, white and blue earrings perfect for Fourth of July:



Have a happy and safe Fourth of July!

Double Take
Comments Off on Double Take

We thought it’d be fun to start a new series here on the blog called “Double Take”. We take one space (in this case, a bed) and show you two different ways to style it! Pillows and accessories can really make a difference, here’s how!

Look #1: Neutral & Feminine

This look features an all white and cream bed with feminine pleats and lace. There are a lot of weathered, natural elements like the wooden lamp and the distressed cream side table. Overall, it’s a neutral, classic look full of pretty details.

Look #2: Eclectic & Colorful

This second look uses the same headboard and bedding, but has a much funkier feel. We added an ikat throw hung on the headboard and purple and blue velvet throw pillows. We added more blue touches with the blue herringbone blanket and the blue glass lamp. The side table is white lacquered.

Isn’t it amazing how different the same bed can look when just changing the accessories and side tables? Everything shown in the pictures above is available at Isabella.

A Neutral Bed & Some Bright New Fabric
Comments Off on A Neutral Bed & Some Bright New Fabric

We recently added new bedding to the bed in the front of the shop. Look closely – all of the bedding (minus the sheets) are 100% linen. Good timing considering this June has felt a lot like August so far!



On the linen bed is one of our new 100% linen throws. These throws are so soft and lightweight. Again – perfect for summer. Even if you’re not in the market for a new threw, come on in just to feel it… it’s so different than your typical throw (in a good way).


We recently got in a handful of new fabrics, which is polar opposite of the neutral bed above. Which brings up a good point – we typically choose neutrals for the “big ticket” items such as bedding and furniture, go bold with pillows and accessories.
