Candice Olson      

Interior Designer; Host of HGTV's "Divine Design"

Candice Olson is one of North America's leading professional interior designers. Her signature style incorporates creativity, practicality and timelessness to create sophisticated yet accessible designs. Her work reflects her personality - intelligent, warm and inviting with a touch of irreverence.

In 2002, Olson decided to try her hand at television by hosting a new series called "Divine Design." On the show, she gave viewers a look inside the lives of homeowners who need their homes transformed for an upcoming event. Guiding viewers through the process of knocking down walls, designing entire floors and building rooms from scratch, she shared information on the latest in style and design, step by step. "Divine Design" with Candice Olson debuted simultaneously in the US on HGTV and in Canada on the W network, immediately establishing itself as the #1 rated prime series on both networks. With outstanding ratings, critical acclaim and an ever-expanding audience, the series ran for nine years, concluding in 2011. After eight years of number one ratings, Olson launched a second TV show – "Candice Tells All" — that delved deeper into Candice's design inspiration and process. It also became a number one hit leading the NY Times to announce her as "the one to watch".

Olson attended the University of Calgary in Canada then continued her academic studies at the School of Interior Design at Ryerson University. Upon graduating, she was immediately scouted for her remarkable talent by some of North America's top interior design firms. After honing her skills, she established her own residential and commercial design practice.

Olson premiered her first line of furniture for Norwolk Furniture stores in 2011 and has since released lines with Century Furniture and Kravet inc.

Olson has also written two books: "Candice Olson on Design: Inspiration and Ideas For Your Home" (2006) and "Candice Olson: Kitchens and Bathrooms" (2011).
