Never one to shy from bold color, pattern, or an over-scale gesture, Nick Olsen mixes antiques and modern artwork with fearless élan.
After earning an architecture degree from Columbia University, Olsen had the good fortune of meeting decorator Miles Redd. While assisting Redd and learning the business of design, he transformed his own studio apartment with color, personal treasures and ingenuity. That space landed on the cover of Domino magazine in 2006 when Olsen was only 24 years old.
Having launched his own firm in 2010, Olsen creates comfortable interiors that nod to the past while maintaining a sense of humor and whimsy. Recent projects include a Greek Revival townhouse in Brooklyn Heights, a family's swank Upper East Side apartment in a Peter Marino-designed building, and a converted barn on Nantucket.
