our core values

Tolu is creative director and founder of Elevate Décor. She loves Jesus, her family, and helping people. Though an introvert, she enjoys socializing with others, exploring new opportunities, and shopping. For a number of years, she excitedly decorated interiors and planned parties as outlets for her creative energy. After being nudged several times to start a business, Elevate Décor was born out of Tolu’s enduring love for timeless style, instinctive creativity, skillful use of color, and passion for party and interior styling.

Her personal style is chic and avant-garde. In general, Tolu embraces a “less is more” approach to decorating. For interior design, she is drawn to modern and mid-century modern styles. As Tolu is typically captivated by details, she is sometimes dubbed a perfectionist.

On the other side of Tolu’s passion is a strong interest in the advancement of third-world countries and the role of agriculture in the growth process. In terms of education, Tolu earned a Bachelor’s in Agricultural Economics from University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, a Master’s in Agribusiness from Texas A&M University, College Station, another Master’s in International Affairs from Tufts University, Medford, and a PhD in International Affairs also from Tufts.

Together, Tolu, her husband (Ade), son (Siju). and daughter (Jomi) make up the core team at Elevate Décor, alongside an outside network of collaborators. Tolu and the Elevate Décor family look forward to working with you!
