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.

CALIE MARIE

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 recently graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder 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. This being said, I am currently in the process of completing my studies with the Interior Design Institute of San Francisco. 

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. Leaving for college and finally being able to decorate my own space is when I realized just how passionate I was about the industry. So, 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.

Boise is home to me and I could not be happier to be back and starting my postgraduate endeavors here. I am so excited to join this hardworking and talented team at The Design House, where I can combine my marketing skills and eye for detail to help boost the company’s social identity and begin my hopeful journey to become a designer.

BRITTAN MAJOR

SOCIAL MEDIA SPECIALIST

After meeting my husband, getting married, and eventually having our first baby girl in 2019 we decided to take our little family to Boise Idaho to raise our sweet Channing.

I had lived in California pretty much my whole life and was a professional hairstylist before making what felt like the biggest leap of my life. When I’m not soaking up all I can from these moments in motherhood, I’m enjoying my yoga practice and traveling with my husband and family. I love design and creating, whether it’s in the kitchen, at a salon, or on a social media platform, it’s all art to me and I love it.

MANDI IVERSON

RESOURCE MANAGER

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!

RUBY TAFOYA

MARKETING SPECIALIST

My name is Ruby Tafoya and I am currently a senior at Boise State University. I am majoring in Business Administration with a minor in Marketing. 

I have always been intrigued by Interior Design and felt as if I have had an eye for it growing up and assisting my mom with decorating our homes and making our living spaces stylish, yet comfortable. I had an internship at home in California this summer, which really opened my eyes to all the aspects of Interior Design and how much I enjoyed broadening my knowledge on it. I consider myself to be a creative person and I feel as if Interior Design is a great way to channel that creativity into something I am passionate about. 

This is such a great learning opportunity for me and I’m very excited to work with such amazing women at The Design House. I am in charge of the marketing side and helping run the social media. I am so inspired by everyone here and am looking forwards to expanding my knowledge in this field.
