Olamar Interiors, LLC


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.

Paola helped design our living spaces after buying a new home. I was overwhelmed by the amount of choices and decisions to make, while being worried it would not all coordinate room to room. Through the VIP Day Service Paola was able to help me clarify my vision, make a plan, and feel confident in my choices. It started with color consultation for all my paint and then moved to furnishing and room layout. I had the opportunity to execute the plan on my own timeframe and she was there for guidance as questions came up. It was the perfect level of support I needed, well worth the investment and I’m so thrilled on how it turned out!

We don't usually write reviews, especially negative ones, because we are aware that mistakes can happen with anyone, and that sometimes projects don't always go as planned, So we write this with an eye on fairness, but thought it was responsible to share our experience with this designer and her team. We hired Olamar Interiors during the renovation phase of our new home. The project was broken down into 2 phases: Phase 1--tiles, light fixtures, etc. Hard surfaces that were to be installed during construction. This phase went great. We are really happy with all of the choices, and Paola worked well with the contractors. We encouraged her to have a meeting with our architect, and wrote him that we were very happy thus far,. Phase 2 was to be interior design. This phase, sadly, went terribly. Many, many errors occurred (and have still not be resolved as I write this),. For example, we knew the exact sofas we wanted in the living room.. We sat on 30 or so couches and determined we wanted the Linger from Room and Board. Paola suggested that the one we wanted was slightly too large, and that she used a custom furniture designer that could make us the exact sofa with the changes in size that she was appropriate. It was double the cost of the sofa we had selected, but trusted her expertise and went ahed with the custom piece. The couch that arrived was not the Linger at all, and, in fact, there is not a couch like it available in Room and Board. We called, she became incredibly defensive, pulled up the contract that we had to allow her to "fix it". The conversation was a terribly destructive one. She finally agreed to get us the couch we initially ordered and to refund the difference. But this was after much effort. We decided to continue to work, because, well, mistakes can happen. Then came another series of errors--dining room chairs, the only requirement that they be "super comfortable" arrived. They look cool, but are certainly not comfortable. She posed a solution that just didn't look right (more padding in the seat, no where else), so we just kept them and will replace them eventually. Custom table to be used between couches was again, not what we ordered, and had black stain filling in worm holes, and the height was not what we suggested. That, too, had to go back and be reordered. We continued working with her, however, and the last order is what put an end to our working relationship, although the matter is still not resolved. We ordered $8,000 roman shades for one of the guest bedrooms. The order arrived, and not only was it not the fabric we had ordered, they were not the right size. As she put it, it was total mess. We reordered them, and found out after the order that the fabric was on back-order, so we ordered again, and they arrived but hung about 3 inches away from the window, making the black-out fabric rather moot--Rob works nights and uses that bedroom for sleep during the daytime, which is why we ordered black out material. Paola offered to refund the money, but we didn't feel it necessary for her to eat this expense without letting her try and resolve it. The installer came, removed half of the blinds weeks ago, and our guests arrive today with half of the window covered, and half with no treatments. And, the remote still has not been returned so we are unable to rise the blind that are lowered, In any event, there have been far too many mistakes that Paola herself has recognized. We felt it to be fair to write a review about our experience. We truly wish her only the best with her company and in the future. She has a really good talent, and we recognize that. The execution for us, and only during phase 2, though, has been incredibly disappointing.

Love Paola and the team! They helped out in my house and gave a warm yet masculine touch to my dining room and master bedroom. Also, have plans for future designs and work. Paola and her team nailed the designs from the get go, installation/delivery was simple, and she took care of everything. Couldn't be more happy with everything! Definitely reach out for a great experience.

I have worked with Olamar Interiors on several projects and have found their concepts to be creative, well thought out and responsive to my challenges. They have created warm, inviting environments in my home and I look forward to our next project together! I would highly recommend their design services.
