Olive + Oak Interiors

Our Background

Hope Clark is the Founder and Principal Designer of Olive + Oak Interiors.

Hope has been around the residential design process her entire life. Her exposure to her father’s landscape architecture firm growing up taught her the importance of client relationships at an early age. She graduated cum laude from San Diego State University with her Bachelor of Art with a focus in Interior Design with a minor in Sustainability. While in school, Hope served as the President of San Diego State University’s student chapter of ASID, and was awarded the regional chapter’s Deborah Thomas Memorial Award.

Hope has worked professionally in interior design for eight years, and in that time has had the opportunity to work on almost every project size, style and type imaginable. Though the majority of her focus has been in residential interior design and design-build, she has enjoyed working on a variety of hospitality and commercial projects, from restaurants and hotels, to yoga studios and boutiques.

She now combines her experience with her unique perspective on customer relationships, in order to create spaces that both inspire and reflect the client.


Our Mission

Our mission is to create bespoke spaces, that both reflect and inspire our clients.

We believe that great design is about deeply understanding the client's ideal lifestyle and unique stylistic preferences, and creating a space that celebrates the nuances of the marriage of those two elements.

We believe in creating individualized inspiration without the interference of ego.

We believe the creative process should be playful and inspired, while implementation should be planned properly and executed precisely.

We understand the emotional power of the upheaval of home, and the duress that changes in something that fundamental can cause if communication is overlooked.

We believe in utilizing 3D renderings and visualization tools to ensure our client's utmost confidence in design directions before they have to move forward in making investments.

We believe design is a process, and that though the end result is of the utmost importance, our client's well-being throughout is as well.
