Olivia Kuhlemeier

Design Associate

Olivia graduated from Iowa State University’s Interior Design Program and brings a strong expertise in corporate and commercial design to Spark. In addition to corporate settings, Olivia also has strong experience in the world of multi-family developments, staging clubhouses and model units.

Ever since junior high, Olivia knew that she wanted to be in the field of Interior Design. She loves exploring the world around her and figuring out how to serve others. She may not be in the medical field, but helping people create a positive, encouraging, uplifting, and healthy environment is what she strives for every day.

Olivia joined R&R as an intern in March 2017 and has grown into a Design Associate since August 2017. Olivia graduated from Iowa State University with a BFA in Interior Design in May 2017. Upon graduating, Olivia has background experience in home staging and residential design. These skills have come in handy for some of R&R’s multi-family projects such as clubhouse refreshes and staging model rooms. Since coming onboard with R&R, Olivia has gained a new appreciation for corporate office design and just how important it truly is.

Although Olivia is still relatively new to the design world, she is continuing to learn more and more every day to gain the skills she needs to be a successful designer. She appreciates the leadership, skill set, and encouragement from her Spark Design team.  

As a designer for Spark, Olivia enjoys space planning, selecting finishes, accessorizing spaces through artwork and decorative items, and focusing on the aesthetic of the space. With spending roughly 1/3 of our day in the office, Olivia feels a strong need to create environments that are comfortable, promote creativity, productivity, and healthy living. Olivia believes it is important to use these concepts to create functional spaces for clients.

When Olivia is not at work, you can find her at the gym, creating home décor and signs, being active in her local church, traveling with friends and family, and enjoying the small town, farm life with her husband!

God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another….. Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then everything you do will bring glory to God through Jesus Christ. All glory and power to him forever and ever. Amen.

1 Peter 4: 10-11
