“I thrive on creating visual delight in interiors, fashion, food and lifestyle – some of life’s sweeteners. Crafting amazing spaces that provoke the senses, tailoring fashion into personalities, creating food into an exciting sensation, and overall, evoking inspiration to live life beautifully and enlighten one’s zest for life. Working closely with each and every client I endeavor, as a visionary, to facilitate exploration of the boundaries by reaching of their unique creative potential, in an intuitive, savvy and on-trend manner, often presenting the ordinary in the extraordinary.”

“Inspired by her surroundings and travels, Olivia’s breadth of experience and eye for the unique and desirable augments her imaginative settings and beautiful styling – whether it be function or form.”
– Penny van Schaik, Collect Home
