Olivia's interest in design was almost inevitable, having grown up in a family of artists and architects.

She read History of Art at London's Courtauld Institute of Art, and reviewed exhibitions for Artlyst while completing her studies. Olivia then went on to work for a commercial London art gallery and the Burlington Magazine, an academic journal. 

She joined Dezeen in 2014, and was made managing editor in October 2016.
