BIO

Modern eclectic design is the signature look of Olga Malyeva. Olga thinks of the interior as of sculpture, believing that proportion is the most important part in architecture and design. Her obsession with contemporary art makes her interiors attractive and modern. Her love of American design enriches her work with functionality and bold scale.

A graduate of the Moscow State University of Design and Technology, Olga built a strong career in marketing at several renowned international companies before moving over to interior design. Her passion for painting and her interest in study of product design and architectural styles history inspired Olga to continue her education at the School of Interior Design “Details” in Moscow (Member of International Interior Design Association - IIDA), that she graduated with honors and is currently teaching at.

“I am truly inspired by contemporary art and fashion. The icons of design of the 20th century and architecture of the 1940s and the 1950s greatly influence my design sensibility.” – Olga Malyeva
