My Design Philosophy:

My philosophy in Interior Design is inspired by my experiences in travel and my hard-working nature. Nothing worthwhile in life can be achieved without persistence, hardwork, love, and passion. Opportunities to travel abroad in Japan and Europe have encouraged my wonder and awe in different cultures and their designs, influencing the way I look at space and form.

I also believe that for an interior designer to be successful, a designer must understand and form a bond of trust between themselves and their clients in order to create a functional, beautiful, and unique space that interprets their wishes and ideas into reality.


My name is Olivia Bufalini, I have loved interior design since I was young. Growing up with a father who was an Architect, and a mother who was an interior designer, inspired and encouraged my love for the industry. I fell quickly in love with residential design, specifically. Being able to create a home that represents the heart of a client, is something that I have always desired. I have been an active participant in the on campus organizations of ASID (American Society of Interior Designers) and IIDA (International Interior Design Association), acting as VP of IIDA, and President of ASID during my time at SFA. I also pursued a construction management certification, along with my interior design degree, helping me to understand how a building works from the foundation, up.

I am also very interested in Universal Design and Sustainable Design. Design can greatly impact the community, people, and the earth. I hope to encourage that impact and eventually make a positive effect on the world, no matter how big or small… even if its just one family, or community.
