Wake Up!

While searching for a new stylish alarm clock,
I found some amazing and bizarre designs. 
Check them out and let me know what you think!

This one, forces you to get up and physically plug in the three wires to turn it off....I can see it now "(YAWN)...Oh no, is it blue with the red, or yellow with the blue, blue to blue..!"

Not a fan of noise first thing in the morning?  Well, if you think you can sleep with a bracelet on, this alarm might be for you as it wakes you up with a vibration!

For all you bacon is your dream...waking up to cooked bacon! 
This is called the "Wake'n Bacon alarm clock".  You put frozen bacon in at night & 10 mins before your wake up time, it starts to cook it!

Have  you been meaning to save up for something...but just haven't made "time" (pun intended) for it?...well this clock forces you to feed it coin to shut it snooze-ya must put money in the bank, every day!

How about an alarm that makes you "get-up"!?

And my favorite for laughs...this alarm is linked to your account & will donate your REAL money to a charity you HATE for every snooze! EEK!

I'm more traditional.  I like to be woken up to music.  So, if you are wondering what I chose....I picked this vintage style alarm.  It takes up less space than my old one from (cough) middle school & will allow me to wake up to whatever song I  want from my ipod.  My first playlist song of choice? "Oh, Happy Day".  Every time I hear it at the end of "Secretariat" I feel energized!

Here's to waking up refreshed & on time! ;)

What's with the name?

The short answer: A 'Lintel' is a horizontal header beam supported by two vertical posts on either end.  It supports openings such as a window or door. A 'Lally' is a concrete filled column that supports long spans of beams. The long answer: I've been toying with the idea of starting a design business & even went back to school for interior design, but the day the third random person knocked on my door asking me, "Who 'picked the colors for this house?", I felt that the time is NOW...let's dive in & do this!
So, what started as a hobby grew into a business, which meant we needed a name, and fast!  We tried the typical 'list of favorite words'.  We spent hours on the thesaurus trying to find different ways to say, 'inspiring, creative, inviting, interior design, etc'.  All the obvious names had all ready been taken.   We couldn't just settle for something predicatable.  Sure, Barbara’s last name would be perfect 'Holmes, …

So I'm doing some "website editing" (fun, fun *sarcasm*), and felt this post was more of a blog-style and thought I'd keep/move it over here--enjoy!

Ever wonder why you bring home several paint swatches from the paint store only to find that none of them look the way you thought they would?

Visual Story-telling Through Art & Interiors

One of the things that make my design process unique is the way I use art.Many people think of art as an afterthought, or just an accessory.When I can, I try to use it as inspiration to build a room from. That is exactly what I did when designing my kitchen.About 12 years ago, I purchased my first pieces of art, which included these two great vintage magazine covers.I love their personality, history, and humor.My goal was to evoke that *feeling* in our kitchen.I also used a literal translation, by mimicking the colors in the art.You’ll see the same colors in my barstool fabric, my cabinets, and even the cream background of the art is what I used in selecting my countertops. Here are the vintage magazine covers I used. Being a picky eater growing up, I could totally relate to wanting to feed the dog under the table…and anyone who knows me knows that while I’m a great cook, I can’t bake.Every time I t…
