About Us

Husband and wife team, Max and Maria Isles combine their talents to create inspiring and thoughtful interiors that reflect the personalities and vision of their clients. 

Their philosophy is a home should be well designed, well loved and well lived in. The combination of a relaxed atmosphere with an understated and timeless yet modern aesthetic sets the tone for their design sensibility. “Whenever a client walks through the door they say they love our shop and would like to live in it! That is the best compliment! We love to create interiors that tell the stories of our clients through our carefully curated and collected designs and we feel our shop stands as a reflection of our own story”, says owner and designer Maria Isles.

Maria Isles has a degree in interior design from Interior Designers Institute and an MBA from Pepperdine University. She has designed projects from large remodels to small make overs. Having lived internationally and traveling back to Europe every year, Maria  gets her inspiration from her travels as well as her roots. Maria’s friendly nature always leads to a great friendship with her clients during and after her projects are completed. 

Max Isles originally from England has a dual degree in Economics and Environmental Science and was trained in woodworking and furniture design at Palomar College. Max is a true craftsman and his attention to perfection and detail rivals his clever English wit and charm.

Maria and Max live with their teen-age son, Brandon and their dog, Izzy in their eco-friendly cottage in Laguna Beach.
