About Cristen Olson
My decorating career started before I could walk. At a very young age I had a strong and intriguing inclination towards balance, color, and form. I took it to be my responsibility to put the furniture in the “correct” order in my parents home. By adolescence I was redecorating any room in the house that was either Ok’d by my parents or that I was able to finish before they got home from work.
After experiencing the Interior Design world, by attending Harrington College of Design in Chicago, I realized I wanted my work to be primarily focused on working with the existing architecture and foundation of a home by using textiles, color, furniture, and finding a balance in the relationships between the “stuff” in the room and you. I went on to take a Feng Shui course in upstate New York at the Omega Living Institute and then become a Certified Interior Decorator after completing the Interior Decorating course through Penn Foster.
My personal style is eclectic, bright, and comforting. Even though I inevitably will bring bite-size pieces of my style into my projects, my focus is not to create a space that reflects me. My aim is to create a space to reflect you and work closely with finding the values and personal responses and associations that everyone living and visiting within your space has to it, and then to be able to create an environment that brings out the best in everyone. I want to create a space that is desired by you, as the client, in a way you may never even knew you desired.
“When I started my massage business 6 months ago, I began making
changes in my life to support the new responsibilities and lifestyle I
was creating. I realized I needed to be more efficient with my time,
and I really wanted to get rid of the clutter and have a work and
living space to support the daily practices I was developing.
Cristen’s coaching helped me to define my spatial needs and make
things functional and beautiful. One of my challenges was letting go
of items I no longer needed that were cluttering my space. We worked
layer by layer, she was wonderful about inspiring me to focus on the
end result. I feel a sense of trainquility and openness in my living
and work space now. I am more eficient and productive and my business
is taking off. I highly recommend Cristen’s program and would
definitely work with her again.” – Thai Masseuse, San Francisco
