Isabelle was born and raised in France and tutored by her father, a dedicated and hardworking man who worked in textiles. Under her father’s mentorship, Isabelle learned strong work ethics in design and craftsmanship, and the foundations for what would become a life-long pursuit of beauty and elegance.

After graduating at the top of her class at Ecole Boulle, one of the leading schools of design and craft in France, Isabelle worked several years in the French Capital, redecorating the Ritz hotel. She then continued her career, as part of a team which redesigned hotels worldwide – including the Four Seasons in Mexico City, the Sheraton in Seychelles, the Meridien in Jakarta and Paris, and the Pullman in Lisbon.

After settling with her family in London, Isabelle began working for Interiors Bis in 1997. This period marked a shift in Isabelle’s interest from the hospitality industry towards high-end residential projects. Since then, Isabelle has complemented her work in interior design with her talent in hand-made luxurious accessories.

Isabelle is now based in San Francisco, where she has created Regard, an Interior Architecture and Design consultancy and showroom. She offers design for your spaces and for yourself that set beauty and elegance as an art-de-vivre.


Regard is an Interior Architecture and Design consultancy and showroom founded in San Francisco by French native interior designer Isabelle McGee.

Inspired by a European aesthetic of elegant simplicity and boasting over 20 years of international experience in capitals that include Paris, London, Rome, Isabelle offers interior design solutions for residential homes, outdoor spaces and small businesses.

Isabelle excels in creating designs with depth, combining efficiency and functionality with quality, harmony and sensitivity. Space, light, textures, colors together with the furniture, accessories and textiles complement each other to give each space a unique identity.

Isabelle helps you design your space, its meaning and its use. Homes are more than housing and businesses are more than a place to work: both communicate a lifestyle, stating who we are, and what our goals are.

Le seul, le vrai, l’unique voyage, c’est de changer de regard.
“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.”
