Growing up in Paris with National Poet of Spain Frederico Garcia Lorca as a granduncle and one of Paris' most revered jewelry designer as a father, it is not surprising that Isabelle Miaja turned towards a more creative occupation after finishing her studies as language major. Isabelle moved to the United States to study and acquire her Interior design training. She practiced in Los Angeles on projects that garnered critical acclaim for both Residential and Commercial properties, spanning across the United States, with five star Hotels in Toronto and Lake Placid as well as High end Residential homes in New York and California.

A turning point occurred in 1995, when Isabelle relocated to Singapore, the design hub of Asia. Now strategically located in the dynamic region, she established her own Interior Design consultancy firm "Isabelle Miaja and Associates " (IMA), specializing in Boutique hotels and High end residential.

In 2009, IMA grew to become what is now known as "Miaja Design Group Pte Ltd", with a strong team of designers, each with different valuable skills that contribute to the ever growing portfolio of the firm. Isabelle Miaja's personal pursuit in relentlessly developing her design skills and knowledge of the hospitality industry has gained her increasing recognition throughout the Asia Pacific region and beyond.
