MEET: TIFFANY

Position: Interior Designer/Founder

What does a typical day look like for you?

Every day is different – one of the things I love most about this career. From hour to hour you can find me dreaming with a client over plans on paper, to trudging through the mud to a construction site to fluffing pillows on a sofa and making sure lamp shade seams are turned to the back!

Confess, what’s on your desk?

My laptop and iPhone because I have to, a notebook because I’m a paper girl, and lots of gold accessories – a gold picture frame of my daughter (the why behind what I do), a gold stapler, paper clips, you name it!

What is your favorite quote?

I am a daughter of the King, who is not moved by this world. For my God is with me and goes before me. I do not fear for I am His.

Beverage of choice?

Southern Sweet Tea of course!

Last three photos on your phone?

A photo of the new layout at Cape House, a new Kate Spade bag I’m eyeing, and a selfie of my daughter Hannah Grace.

Who would play you in a movie of your life?

I’m told Tiffini Amber Theisen is my doppleganger – I’ll take it!

Favorite spot in Fernandina?

I love to be at home with my family!

Favorite Holiday?

Hands down Christmas!

Favorite aspect of the design process?

I love when everything starts to come together and the client is finally able to see what I have seen in my head for months – sometimes years!


MEET: MCKENZIE

Meet: Mckenzie

Position: Interior Stylist

What does a typical day for you look like?

Each day looks completely different in my world. These days it feels like we’re rarely in the office. A typical day in my world is filled with client meetings, design selections, shopping for projects, and keeping everything organized while doing so. Some days we bounce from meeting contractors on construction sites to presenting design plans in a client’s home. And it’s safe to say each day holds a surprise or two, so we’re always on our toes!

What’s on your desk?

A monogrammed mint julep cup to keep my favorite writing supplies tidy, a pretty stack of LOLA business cards (that gold foil though! so pretty!), this afternoon’s lunch (apple bacon salad – #yum), a picture of my sweet hubs and I on our honeymoon, and one of my favorite @laracasey art prints. And I can’t forget my Simplified Planner! Couldn’t live without it!

Favorite quote?

Whatever is good for the soul, do that. Proverbs 11:27

Beverage of choice?

A Starbucks dirty chai with an extra shot of espresso, please!

Last three photos on your phone?

A screenshot of an apple cider recipe I’ve been wanting to try, this morning’s coffee, and a shot of the Florida House from our Sunday brunch.

Who would play you in a movie of your life?

Reese Witherspoon for sure. We may look nothing alike but I’m pretty sure we could be besties! 

Favorite spot in Fernandina?

There’s a little bench in Old Town overlooking the water. The best sunset (and dolphin!) watching spot in town!

Favorite holiday?

Christmas of course! I love hosting family and friends, shopping for the perfect gifts and decorating the house! Celebrating everything the Lord has done for us and making memories with loved ones is my favorite time of the year.

Favorite aspect of the design process?

My favorite part of the design process is the initial client meeting where we get to dream and brainstorm what’s to come! I love seeing our “canvas” for the first time.


MEET: KELLI

Position: Lead Designer’s Assistant & Office Coordinator

What does your day look like?

Some days I am in the office working on projects for clients and scheduling appointments, and other days I am out running errands and going to meetings. It typically changes everyday, which is one of the many reasons why I love my job!

What’s on your desk?

Lots of pens and markers, my computer and my iPhone, a water, a gold pineapple with lots of paperclips, and usually my planner and a few notebooks.

Favorite quote?

“Everyday may not be good, but there is something good in every day.”

Beverage of choice?

Coke in a can for sure!

Last three photos on your phone?

Tile samples, my dog digging in the mud at my house, a group picture with some of my friends.

Who would play you in a movie of your life?

I would love for it to be Leighton Meester, I’m a big Gossip Girl fan!

Favorite spot in Fernandina?

The backyard at my parents house, it’s so peaceful and just feels like home!

Favorite holiday?

Christmas of course.

Favorite aspect of the design process?

My favorite aspect of the design process is getting to see everything finally come together cohesively and making the clients happy!


MEET: LISA

Position: Office Manager 

What does a typical day look like for you?

I start my day with The Lord, my best friend/husband Ben, our animals and a Chai Tea Latte. I have grown spiritually over the years, so I have a limited number of “yes’s” in my life. I want to enjoy and savor what matters most to me! I love serving at my church and investing in women as they choose to strengthen their relationship with Jesus. Ben & I love spending time with our 2 boys, our family & close friends. I am thankful for time spent with them and never want to take that for granted. My position at Lola Interiors, where my gifts of organization and practicality, is stewarded well and I get the blessing of “freshening up” our house with ideas shared at our office.

What’s on your desk?

HA! Which one? My home office is a mess at the moment. I have a pile for each church group I’m involved in, framed pictures of our family, crafts my boys made me when they were in elementary school, biblical verses, my laptop, and most importantly, the doggie pillow Bear sleeps in while I’m in the office. My desk at Lola is much more professional with gold accented office supplies, organized files and pens of every color – so I can color code everything.

Favorite quote?

“Love Never Fails” 1 Corinthians 13:8. My husband and I have matching tattoos with that verse and a small cross on our left wrists.

Beverage of choice?

Dr. Pepper.

Last three photos on your phone?

A picture of Austin holding up a medal he won for winning a hockey tournament 9 years ago and 2 pictures taken at the Journey Church’s EQUIP leadership dinner.

Who would play you in a movie of your life?

My kids would do it well and I’m sure it would be very funny!

Favorite spot in Fernandina?

The Journey Church.

Favorite holiday?

Christmas.

Favorite aspect of the design process?

Creating a space that is friendly, livable, and tells a story. Being the bookkeeper, I also really like when clients pay quick, HA!

MEET: MAKAELA

Position: Design Assistant 

What does a typical day look like for you?

I’m not a morning person, so typically I’m running around the house in a rush. I wish I could get up at 5 am though. During the week, I get to work at 9 and start to dive into all the things I need to do for the day, and when I get off I head home to cook dinner and chill with my sweet husband. If it is the weekend I take my time, drink my coffee, read my Bible, clean the house or go and do something fun.

What’s on your desk?

I’m a pretty organized person, so it’s tidy. I can’t work in a mess. What I do have on it though is a paper holder for all the floating papers I have, a black and white polka dot stapler that reminds me of Kate Spade, picture of my nephew and I from my wedding, a cute little succulent and a pencil holder with all my favorite pens and pencils! 

Favorite quote?

“We run at a breakneck pace to try and achieve what God wants us to slow down enough to receive.” 

Beverage of choice?

Sprite. 

Last three photos on your phone?

A quote and two pictures of a clients home in the middle of a remodel. 

Who would play you in a movie of your life?

Reese Witherspoon. 

Favorite spot in Fernandina?

The Beach. So peaceful and relaxing.

Favorite holiday?

Christmas.

Favorite aspect of the design process?

I love being able to see a space that was plain get transformed into something beautiful. Also, I love being apart of choosing finishes and selections for each client.
