FOUNDER & CREATIVE DIRECTOR

TRISHA ISABEY

Trisha Isabey is the Founder and Creative Director of award-winning Isabey Interiors. This sought-after designer shares more than a decade of experience, with a diverse and extensive portfolio including custom homes, multi-family developments and commercial projects.

Her multi award-winning company specializes now in both residential and commercial designs, focusing on personality and style, while maximizing function and liveability.

Trisha’s background as a professional stockbroker and financial planner made way for a career in interior design – not a huge stretch, given that her business acumen was matched only by her love of design. After more than a decade in the investment industry, she became an interior designer and founded Kelowna-based interior design firm Isabey Interiors.

Trisha has successfully grown the team over the last decade at Isabey Interiors to become an award- winning design firm in Kelowna, BC, specializing in residential and commercial design. which is now ranked the largest interior design firm in British Columbia.

Her firm Isabey Interiors was recognized with the Okanagan Housing Award of Excellence for Interior Designer of the Year, propelling the Isabey brand into the Okanagan and the surrounding community. Trisha has now expanded the Isabey Collective to offer a furniture and home decor store, called Furnish by Isabey Interiors, and a custom artisan gifting company called Furnish for You, as well as Isabey Home, a collaborative build and design company. 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 décor 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 & Décor 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. When not at work you can find this busy mom of two involved with supporting local charities and finding time to enjoy the beautiful Kelowna landscape around her.

Travis is a structural designer with a keen eye and vision for great home design.

Travis was born here in the Okanagan but always had a spirit for adventure and travel which took him to many unique corners of the world. Travis spent a decade working in the oil and gas industry designing and building pipelines and managing large crews. During his off time when he was not exploring the world he started designing and building homes which became a passion he had to pursue!

A short 4 years ago, Travis made the best and most difficult career decision, leaving a very lucrative career in the oil and gas industry to pursue his dreams of building design. As Travis has travelled the world he has been inspired by unique structures – constantly pushing the envelope to create innovative and unique homes that he is proud to put the Travis signature on. As his design and development projects have continued to grow and expand, he could not be more thrilled to team up with Isabey Interiors. Travis is excited by the opportunity to work alongside a team of multi-talented individuals each with their own unique flare and talents creating amazing homes that will inspire!

With a love to shop and travel, Tina has enjoyed the beaches of California, many parts of North America, and Europe where she embraces her heritage. Tina lives the Okanagan dream with her husband and two stepchildren which allows her to enjoy the great outdoors, sports and a love of entertaining family and friends in their home or on their boat!
