CAMILLE OLSON

OWNER

Email Camille

As the founder and owner of The Design House, I’m in the perfect place to fulfill my life’s goals — to create an environment where happy, well-cared for individuals can thrive and do their best work. My interior design team consists of self-driven, talented professionals who are ready to help our clients translate their visions into inspiring spaces.

My passion for design dates back to my days as an interior designer in the “hot” Las Vegas market in early 2000. As I traveled through different careers, I find myself in my third chapter of life — back to what I really love, interior design.

When it comes to my personal style, I realize I have always been into fashion. I look at the trends but always focus on the ones that have longevity — the ones that are not necessarily over the top expensive but are always in style. This love of fashion helps explain my passion for interior design and my clients will reap the benefits of spaces that are considered always in fashion.

Finally, I am a passionate, kind and loving person who is a solid business leader and a proud mother of two amazing children — both who inspire me each and every day. I pledge that myself and my team will help you through the many challenges and obstacles of creating the perfect living or working space.

DESIGNER

Email Calie

A graduate of the New York Institute of Art and Design in Interior Design.

As much as I’m creative through and through, I’m also very structured and enjoy schedules and organization. With a background in Nutrition from Idaho State University where I managed diets for patients for many years but found myself wanting to know more about the commercial side of the businesses…mostly design.

In 2017, I began working closely with the Blackwell Boutique Hotel, Art Gallery, and Restaurant/ Bar in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, as well as commercial & residential properties in Austin, Texas, and Boise, Idaho, designing and managing.

Now a designer, and owner of “Inspired Designs by Calie”, I focus on creating exquisite spaces for guests and companies to create their own memories in and feel at home when they are away from home. I especially love consulting and designing for hotel and Airbnb spaces. My passion is sharing the power of beautiful interiors that spark joy, and wellness. When guests feel wonderful in a space you have created, you have given them a gift.

A little more about me: I love traveling, fitness, and spending time with my partner, kids, and friends. Life is good!

EMMA SABALA

DESIGNER & OFFICE ADMINISTRATOR

Email Emma

My name is Emma Sabala and I graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder in May of 2021 with a degree in Public Relations and a minor in Business with an emphasis in Innovation and Entrepreneurship. 

Aside from my college education, I have always had a passion for interior design. Growing up I always loved observing and helping my mom decorate our homes. The various styles and designs individuals can select and build into their dream space is fascinating to me.

While in college, I began looking for ways I could help local designers both in Boise, Idaho and at school in Boulder, Colorado. My first internship was with Kathy Searcy at the Idaho Design Center here in Boise and the other with Haven Interiors in Boulder where I shadowed Laura Hodgens. I am very thankful to have had both of these experiences as they provided great insight to the design industry in its entirety. 

After graduation, I became very eager to begin my design career. Boise is home to me and I could not be happier to have accepted working as an Interior Designer for The Design House in July of 2021. A few months after I began my career here, I also accepted the role as Office Administrator which has provided me with a new and exciting understanding of the industry. I feel so blessed to be working alongside such a hardworking and talented team and look forward to all there is to come.

Hi, I’m Mandi!

I was born and raised in Pocatello, Idaho, and now live in the North End of Boise.

I love traveling, spending time with family, my dog and friends…not in that particular order, and 3D puzzles!

I got my start in design while working on several construction projects with my dad and fell in love with the organization, details, and design aspects of each venture. I also have my cosmetology license and enjoy being behind the chair and taking care of my clients.

As the Resource Manager for The Design House, I pride myself on organization and finding unique products and textiles for the companies’ designers. Not only is It exciting and rewarding but challenging and I am always learning something new.

I love all the designers I work with and I know you will as well!

EMMA POE 

SENIOR DESIGNER

Email Emma

A graduate of the University of Idaho – College of Art & Architecture with a bachelor’s in Interior Architecture & Design, and a minor in Architecture.

Interior Design has always been a passion of mine. Even when I was little I spent more time designing my doll’s houses than actually playing with them. When it was time to head off to college, I knew exactly my career path. After graduation, I moved back to my hometown and worked as an Interior Designer in the Sun Valley area. Now, in the Boise area, I love designing anything from custom to commercial – it’s all my jam. I’m a bit of a design software nerd and love creating renderings.

Outside of work, you could find me spending time outdoors, at the gym, or dining and spending time with my partner, friends, family, and little Dachshund, Dale.
