Interior Design Services

Interior Design is more than just a pretty picture.Olson House believes interior design is more than just a pretty picture.  It's how humans interact with their environment through the use of home, work and play spaces. We like to start our interior design process by getting to know you. We learn about how you & your family live, work and play. We listen to what is important to you and then craft spaces to reflect you and your lifestyle.

We believe that the aesthetics of a space are only one key element of thoughtful design. Good interior design also builds spaces by evaluating the materials in terms of how they affect your well-being in addition to who is making the product you surround yourself with. At Olson House, we love partnering with companies and brands that promote sustainable materials and products. Overall, Olson House helps our clients create spaces attuned to health, longevity and function with your unique vision in mind. We can create your dream space together. 

The design team is led by Teresa Olson, ASID, WRID, with a portfolio ranging from hospitality and restaurants, to corporate environments & education, and homes large and small.

Here are some of their stories. 

"For a long time I’d been trying to figure out my style, in terms of home design. I like bits of a lot of different styles, but it wasn’t until I discovered Olson House that I realized how much modern Scandinavian design speaks to me — especially through the lens of owner Teresa Olson. I love the shop’s blend of Nordic and ‘local.’ Everything Teresa carries in her store has the attributes that are important to me — quality, beauty and functionality. They’re pieces I know I will have forever. And Teresa is this patient guide who makes the shopping experience so enjoyable. I have special-ordered a few pieces of furniture and treasure them in my home." - Ann Christenson 

"I collaborated with Teresa from Olson House to design a warm, healing space for Golden Rey Energy Center, a holistic healing center in Shorewood. I enjoyed every minute of working with Teresa. She has an innate sense of style. She listened to me to understand the unique needs of our Center, and she guided me every step of the way.  Teresa helped with color schemes, art (she found local artists to display there work for us, which is a win-win for all), furniture and rug selections and window treatments. There were colors she suggested that I wouldn't have considered and I went with it. I am so glad I did, because they work great and give my space a warmth I could not have achieved on my own.  I like Teresa's clarity. She knows what will work and what won't, and she states it clearly and with confidence, which also helped to give me confidence with big purchases such as furniture and window treatments. I had so much success working with Teresa that I also hired her to help with my home, and it turned out great. I highly recommend interior design services through Teresa at Olson House." - Kristen Reynolds

"We love that Olson House sells unique and quality Scandinavian products as well as beautifully made local artwork and crafts.  Shopping at Olson House has allowed us to update our decor by choosing amazing furniture, artwork and linens over the last few years.  It’s wonderful to have a local shop to purchase beautiful gifts for family and friends." - Kim and Pat Uding 
"Teresa is a treasure. She understood completely the direction in which I wanted to go in my design project and executed it perfectly. My once sad room is now a place of joy, thanks to her. I have worked with other designers in the past and she was by far the best; easy to work with, kind and professional. I only wish I had found her sooner!" - Anne Arisso
