Welcome to Liv with Vision!
My name is Olivia, but most call me Liv or Livvy. I am an Interior Designer by trade and I love travel, keeping fit, photography, great food and cups of tea in bed on a Saturday morning.
Liv with Vision collides life with style. It is what I am most passionate about and what I do. I believe life should be seen with our eyes and hearts wide open, which is why I want this to be a destination where vision is inspired. Our goal here is to help people see the good in their lives and to find ways to bring out their best – both in their homes and personal lives.
I was born in Adelaide (please don’t hold it against me!) in the late 80’s and moved to Sydney when I was about 7. I have the most wonderful family. Originally the youngest child of three, I now have step-brothers, step-sisters, in-laws, nieces, nephews and a sweet younger half-sister (whom I had to renounce my “youngest child privileges” to a number of years ago).
When I was about 15, one of my closest girlfriends encouraged me along to church and since that day I’ve not looked back. Having a relationship with Jesus has been the foundation of my life for the past 10 years. Being a part of my church, serving regularly and seeing so many lives turn around thanks to God would have to be some of the most memorable experiences I’ve had to date.
Straight after finishing school, I started studying Interior Design and immediately found my greatest passion! I’ve discovered over the years that I love everything about design, be it interiors, graphics, fashion or architecture. Beautiful design is what inspires me the most, which is one of the reasons why I love to travel and explore new places – even a great, new restaurant will make me all giddy inside!
In 2010, I met the man who turned out to be the love of my life – Andrew – who I also like to call Andy, Handy-Andy, Mr Fix-it or more recently, Hubby. In May this year all of our dreams came true as we tied the knot. It was, without a doubt, the best day of my life, and one that I will treasure forever. Together, we have huge dreams; for our lives, our home, and even this blog. Every so often, we’ll see Andy drop in a post – he’s the practical side of my life so we’ll pull him in for DIY, fix-it, gardening or building related articles.
While I love all things design & style related, I’d love to hear your suggestions. What would you like to see on this blog, or what can I help you with? Above all, we hope to put a little sparkle in your eye, or warmth in your heart – to help you live with a vision for your life, full of style and meaning.
