Olamar Interiors, LLC


New project

It starts and ends with listening, with a lot of conversation in between.  Starting with our first conversation, we listen carefully for the unique cues that will allow us to develop a design concept that is a total reflection of you with an injection of our unerring eye and creative vision. We believe that careful listening and clear communication are the keys to ensuring your design experience with us will not just meet your expectation; it will leave you dazzled.

If you're considering working with an interior design company, I highly recommend Olamar Interiors! We reached out to Olamar Interiors when we started building our custom home. We had an idea of what we wanted, but Paola really helped bring it all together. I can't even describe how amazing it was to have her support at the design studio. Paola knew her way around the studio which allowed me to just sit back while she pulled all the items. She was able to answer when I was asked about grout color, tile sizes, layouts, color patterns, etc...seriously, why are there a million things to select?! It truly made that process stress-free. Our build took almost 3 years (thank you wetland permits and COVID) and Paola and team were patient every step of the way. We continued with Olamar Interiors to furnish a few rooms and we are beyond happy with the final product. She selected furniture pieces that we would have never considered, and what do you know, they are now some of our most favorite items. Paola and her team were always available to answer questions and provide support. I can't thank them enough!!

We had a wonderful experience with working with Paola and her team! We used her for design/selections when building our home and for many of our interior spaces (furniture, accessories, rugs, and wallpaper) after building. Olamar Interiors brought all our visions to life! They listened and presented many options for us to choose from. They always listened to our wants and budget for various spaces. Paola and her team are responsive over email and were involved in all of our installations. We highly recommend Olamar Interiors and look forward to working with them on future home projects!

Paola has incredible vision and really wants to design a space around her client’s needs/wants. We began working with Paola a few years ago. She helped our contractor with the deign of our 1st floor reno. Our original floor plan had some awkward bump outs that we couldn’t really figure out how to incorporate it in our design. Paola came up with a beautiful and functional design that we cannot be happier about. Our new kitchen includes unique pieces that so much beauty to the design! You can see photos in her webpage (search Haymarket kitchen). We asked Paola to help us pick out lighting, material choices for our kitchen, new artwork, furnishings, and accessories for the entire 1st floor. It’s everything we wanted and could nit have done it without her. We are working with Paola again as we finish our basement and cannot wait to see the final result. I highly recommend Paola for her vision, passion, attention to the client, focus on details that make such an impact and an overall lovely person to work with on any project.
