We are a full-service design + remodel company with an absurd amount of passion for design and a phobia of trends. Kassina, our owner, is best described as a hybrid designer-architect-contractor with a family history of real estate investing. Unlike anyone in the Twin Cities, she brings you high-end, custom design, while being smart with your investment.

See our work and get in touch at www.olliepopdesign.com and follow along for design tips and go behind-the-scenes on all our projects on Instagram @olliepop_design. We’ll be doing fun giveaways on Instagram leading up to the show!
