Christina Oliver Wins ASID New England Chapter’s Design Competition Award

oliver interiorsA Kitchen Designed to Blend the Elements of Earth and Water Receives First Place

Adding to her long list of design industry accomplishments, Christina Oliver, ASID, has received first place in the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) New England Chapter’s 2011 Annual Design Competition Award.  Her entry, a Residential Kitchen, was completed in Brookline as part of a condominium redesign and remodeling effort, and was cited as the best example of design excellence in that category.

During the award ceremony, Christina was quick to credit Sheldon Perry, the owner of Steepleview Cabinetry, for his extraordinary work in creating custom cabinets for the kitchen.  In addition, she thanked her former staff designers, Bethany Gardner and Sonya Quinlan for their essential contributions.

“Any design project requires the hands and hearts of more than one professional. The vision was developed with my client, but the execution and final details were helped immeasurably by the talents of Bethany, Sonya, and the craftsmen who created such stunning built-in cabinets.  I wholeheartedly share this recognition with them.”

The 2011 award-winning kitchen was redesigned for a right-handed cook; the previous owner was left-handed. The theme of “earth and water” was defined by the neutral color scheme and elegant use of natural materials.  New blonde wood floors meet creamy walls, accented by smoky blue iridescent granite and tile.  Old cabinetry and appliances were donated for re-use, and a new floor plan and shifting a door way achieved optimal seating and storage.  The curve of the island and the Blue Astral countertop added eye-catching focal points, and specially lit display boxes above the cabinets worked with the high ceilings to recreate the space as a warm, functional kitchen.

Most recently honored by the Boston Architectural College (BAC) with the 2010 Alumni in Practice Award for Interior Design, Christina is a leader in a variety of professional organizations. Oliver Interiors, LLC serves the residential market, working closely with clients and collaborating with architects, contractors and artisans.  The firm’s designs represent a client’s needs and desires, often through the innovative use of space and special attention to detail.
