We believe that great interior design doesn’t need to be difficult or expensive. That with smart choices, some savvy design techniques and a few pieces that stand out from the usual, anyone can create their own, unique space to fit their lifestyle.
Having worked professionally for high end design consultancies, while helping friends to design their homes on the side – we realised that there was a huge opportunity to open up interior design to people with smaller projects or budgets but no less sense of style.
And so Olivine Life was born.
Decorating a room doesn’t have to be overwhelming, time consuming or confusing. Our platform allows you to work with our experienced team to create a room tailor made for you and reflecting your unique style – all online.
We’re dedicated to bringing you a curated, creative and affordable source of interior design inspiration and guidance, all on one site.

How would you best describe your style?

What rules do you break?
T Perfectly matching interiors, its so much more fun when rooms are unbalanced.
V So many.
Where do you turn for inspiration?
