I founded my interior design company, Olive Design in 1995, having come full circle as a fine artist, textile designer and decorative painter. Count on me to offer out-of-the-box custom solutions for your design conundrums, select satisfying colors that make you feel at home, and choose furnishings that fit your life and style. I work on all sized projects, from single window treatments to your entire home.

Keeping your budget in mind, I can help you work with existing rugs and furniture- or take you to the next step and select appropriate pieces for your home.  At the end of the day, your place should be lovely and livable, with harmonious colors ‘ and a feel-good vibe.  We can work with your style preferences for a unique look, whether it is Victorian, Modern, Transitional or Eclectic.  (Eclectic!  The new Black!). I can guide you to cost-savvy choices, and find the best solutions for your design needs and budget.

We can make your project as Green as possible by choosing environmentally friendly materials such as low VOC paints and formaldehyde free plywood. For your lighting needs, please check out my line of unique lamps designed with vintage and industrial materials. Custom inquiries welcome.
