residential interior design

“A room should never allow the eye to settle in one place. It should smile at you and create fantasy.”

Your home is a special, uniquely valued place where memories are made, secrets are kept, rest is found, and where life occurs. Firmly advocating for maximizing the time spent at home, the OLIVA design team designs and produces residential spaces in a variety of shapes and sizes, with full awareness of the emotional impact that thoughtful interiors can have on each of our clients. Let our design team learn about your needs, share your ideas and tell your story…

Focus on quality

A nod to practical luxury.

By partnering with top interior brands, shops, and artisans, and sourcing only the highest-quality materials, furnishings, and objects, OLIVA sets a high standard in the high-end interior design space. Our work is not based on flash and frivolity, but rather on practical luxury and sensible design choices. Although we’ll afford the occasional splurge to please your passions, the sourcing and budgeting process is balanced, straightforward, and based on the most appropriate quality for longer project life.

Truly Custom design

Design that is unique to you.

Great design is not about chasing trends; it’s about telling your story and solving problems that might be unique to you and your family (including your pets). Throughout the project, an in-depth discovery of your wants, needs, passions and pain points emerge and are addressed through a holistic design process that unfolds between you and your designer. Thus, a relationship is formed that creates balance, brings our design insight to the fore, and helps everyone set clear expectations.

Integrated design

Seeing the whole picture

Together, we are not just designing a room; we are creating an environment that captures your aesthetic desires, reflects your history and your goals, and communicates your lifestyle. All this is achieved through our team’s multifaceted research, design and execution of interior spaces.

space planning

Let’s go beyond the beauty. Carefully observing all architectural and spatial aspects, your interiors will be transformed to accommodate a variety of needs (light, access and egress, space flow, size, structural requirements, and more). Aided by partnering architects, structural engineers, and other vetted contractors, you will benefit from sensible, professionally developed plans that set the foundation for great interior design.

light

Using natural and artificial light, let’s create a strategic lighting plan that facilitates the efficient use of space, and adds the richness, color, brightness, or intimaacy that every room and occasion requires.

color

Every color has the power to tell a story, and the harmony achieved in your room will help tell yours. Whether your favorite schemes are defined by neutrals or more vibrant hues, professional color consultants will create the perfect combination for the desired mood.

furniture

Only the highest-quality craftsmanship, superior textiles and materials, and timeless aesthetics come into your project. Favoring sensible purchases over fast furniture and housewares, not only do we reduce the ecological impact of the design, but also extend the life of the project and provide added peace of mind.

materials

High-gloss, rugged leather, reflective metals, rich wool, shimmery glass mosaic, lavish boucle… what’s your favorite? At OLIVA, artisanal, antique, and carefully restored gems collide beautifully with cutting-edge construction materials, textiles, and paint technology to create unexpected combinations of high-quality resources.

art & décor

Style is infused with unique elements – from lavish rugs, pillows and textiles, to high-impact artwork and objects. With a global design awareness and an eye for chic eclectic, your designer will expertly curate the perfect collection for your space.

technology

Technology adds automation, security, and connectivity to our interior design projects. These technical needs are considered when planning the space and throughout all aspects of the construction or renovation phases.

scents & sounds

Your experience transcends the visual and tactical, as our design team will consider and consult on unexpected audio and olfactive elements as part of our multi-dimensional design process.

Let's brainstorm

DISCOVERY

Great design stems from great ideas, and those ideas are best motivated by qualitative and quantitative goals that provide long-term satisfaction. Through an in-depth discovery session with our clients, we can quickly identify pain points, wants, needs, and even common misconceptions about the design process, and thusly begin a wonderful relationship of trust.

Looking at a blank canvas

SPACE ASSESMENT

By carefully evaluating the dimensions, limitations, opportunities, occupancy goals, safety requirements, and other engineering considerations, we can identify efficient uses of space that translate into more efficient and sustainable design and materials selection.

All things considered

INVENTORY

At OLIVA, we believe that waste is disrespectful. For a new project, when decorating or when renovating a space, it's important to be mindful of existing elements, which promotes sustainability. By collecting, centralizing, and cataloging your current elements, we are able to bring new life to forgotten objects, repurpose useful materials, extend the life of existing furniture, and much more.

We lay the foundation

DESIGN / PROJECT BRIEF

The first plans, building scans, layouts, and mockups are drawn to scale and presented to the client using efficient digital visualization, cloud-based file-sharing, and real-time collaboration tools. Decisions and clear, objective feedback is exchange to arrive at actionable items for our next discussions.

Setting Boundries

BUDGETING / SCHEDULING

It is said that one hour of planning will save us 10 hours of doing. By defining budget and time expectations from the beginning, we can create a clear, collaborative framework that allows us to do our best work and helps everyone enjoy the design experience.

On the hunt

SOURCING & CONTRACTING

Once space considerations are considered, occupancy goals are addresses, and design decisions are edited, the OLIVA team accesses our wealth of industry-leading resources to identify the materials, furniture, objects, contractors, and other elements to produce the project while meeting your specific criteria.

Bringing everything together

INSTALLATION

The installation phase is exciting and not without its challenges. That's why we provide clients remote and on-site support and only work with top-vetted partners to complete our residential commercial and art consulting projects. Throughout the execution of the design plan, all teams and shareholders are informed and integrated for increased efficiency.
