At home with Olivine Design

At home with Olivine Design

Welcome to our new interiors series where we shine a spotlight on some of our favourite accounts that demonstrate the beauty of using vintage in the home. We discuss using vintage in the home with interior designers Taline and Victoria.

How would you describe your interiors style?

We use the influences of our different cultural backgrounds to design rooms with a mix of contemporary and classic finishes, and we like to create using a mix of layered colour, pattern and texture.

How do you use vintage in your projects?

We don’t feel any room is complete without a mix of old and new. Vintage pieces bring character and life to a decorated room that makes it feel personal. 

What do you love most about sourcing vintage?

We never know what we are going to find and that’s exciting. Vintage pieces also take patience to find, this slows down the design process and gives us time to consider what works best for our clients and the room we are designing. 

What advice would you give to someone when considering using vintage in their home?

Take the time to find what works, what fits and what will add the element of surprise to an interior that you might not already have. The juxtaposition of old and new is what will bring a room together.
