Olivia Henrie is an interior decorator and stylist, turned ceramicist and furniture designer. She is the founder of Innerspacism and co-founder of Atelier, a boutique retail shop in the heart of downtown Salt Lake City. Most importantly, she is the host of countless dinner parties — one of her favorite rituals to share with others.
Even at a young age we all knew that Olivia’s future was bound to making healing spaces for her community. She first connected with the soulfulness of “found” items when her mother would take her to estate sales and thrift stores — a weekly ritual that remains today.
Her father worked contract jobs so the family frequently moved all around the American Southwest. Olivia learned from her mother how to turn a cold, sterile space in a brand new town into a welcoming sanctuary that your heart chooses to call home.
In addition to inheriting her mother’s intuitive style and decor skills — Olivia and her sisters learned a great deal about composition, color, form, emphasis and the creative process as a whole from watching her father as he would paint regional landscapes in his studio. Yet another ritual that is practiced to this day.
