We are a newly established one stop shop for home owners and decorators.
Our range includes contemporary pieces and pieces that are French infused with finishes reminiscent of the South of France.
The perfect opportunity to give your home the makeover to welcome your guests in style.
Bespoke statement furniture pieces is the ideal starting point, it offers timeless beauty without demanding any attention.
Staying ahead of the latest trends in décor can be very daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. Let’s take a look at some tips for a French infused home.
Here are some tips to make your home French inspired:
- Arrange your furniture imaginatively.
Don’t worry about matching and follow your preference.
- Have at least one or two (or three) grand ORIGINAL pieces, nothing compares, be it a fabulous armoire, Louis arm chairs, mirror or gorgeous crystal chandelier.
- Armoires are not only majestic and beautiful, they offer the perfect amount of storage space, they make ideal linen cupboards and can be used in any room
- Nothing evokes the French feel more than a crystal chandelier. Put it on a dimmer to create instant ambiance.
- Add a photo collage of weathered frames.
- Accesorize with items that has history or that tells a story.
Smaller furnishings such as scatter cushions, side tables and lamps are perfect for that touch of detail.
- Mirrors are the best way to reflect and act as a creator of space. All shapes and sizes. Old or new. Mirrors have and will always work.
- We are left with trying to think outside the box when it comes to flowers and greenery with the current drought South Africa is facing at the moment. We recommend our range faux flowers and greenery. They are incredibly life like and will add a vibrant touch to your room or space.
It was the talk of 2017, and apparently trend houses are saying that velvet is about to get even bigger in 2018. This classic fabric goes well bright colours whilst offering a different dimension to a room.
The hue authority has declared ultra violet as the colour of the year for 2018 and it won’t be ignored here at Annabelle as ultra violet is a strong shade that will work well as a focal point in a room creating interest. Subtle references can be made with smaller pieces in the same colour such as our velvet scatters. The colour signifies mindfulness, spirituality and creative living.
It seems that bold colours are here to stay.
It signifies a movement of change in the way we decorate our homes within a nation acclimatized to neutral colours. Different shades of purple will be popular with special focus on lavender hues.
The colour trend in interiors extends to our bigger furniture pieces too. Think sideboard in a turquoise/ mint or a cupboard in watermelon red.
We are happy that colour is here to stay and offers exciting potential for us here at AnnaBelle Hermanus.
Let 2018 be the year you have fun with your interiors, find what suits you, and simply be inspired by all things AnnaBelle.

Dream, design, and make it your own!
We asked the inspired owner to define the brand.
What is the story behind your store’s name? We feel it encompasses our style – it’s pretty, it’s feminine, and it’s French! The owner was looking for a name that would resonate with women; a complex tribe filled with Annas and Belles. It also means ‘easy to love’, which perfectly describes our unique pieces…
Why the rabbit? Simply put, it’s the owner’s good luck charm!
When did the idea for your brand come about?The desire to open a store has been there for a very long time. Hermanus is growing, and with the new mall came the perfect opportunity to realise the dream. The concept was never negotiable, it was simply a question of when.

Through our collective travels and interests in design, we have managed to put together a unique combination of styles that say: AnnaBelle!
Personally, what’s your favourite range or item?Without a doubt, we fell in love with a black cupboard from France the minute we turned the key to open it – its sounds and smells of days gone by, filled with stories we can only imagine ourselves living in!
