Introducing Lintels & Lallies *WORDS* Collection

I’m thrilled to introduce my latest passion, a new service of Lintels & Lallies, called “WORDS”. After many requests, now you can purchase original hand painted works of art created to uplift you & your family. There are pieces available in all price ranges & I have also been taking custom orders. Please read below to learn more about this exciting line.

With a distraction of 5,000 advertisements per day, WORDS, is designed for you and your family; to silently speak encouragement by bringing the focus back on the core values each family finds important.

Maybe it is the lyrics of your first dance as husband & wife, to help remind you of your commitment. Maybe it is a saying your grandmother taught you that you’d like to carry on. Maybe it is scripture or poetry. Whatever you value to help you keep focus and feel inspired throughout the day.

Please check back regularly - I will be adding more paintings in between orders.

If you have something you'd like made as a Christmas gift, send me a message!

Psalm 19:14

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?

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…
