The Lola Team's Home Essentials
They say, “home is not a place, it’s a feeling!” and we couldn’t agree more! This sentiment drives the way we work and the decisions we help clients make each and every day.
The Lola ladies put together a few of our “essentials” for making your house feel like HOME!
“The one item I think every house needs is fresh flowers. At my house, every time I go to the grocery store I pick them up. When you add them to your space, they not only add something fun, but they bring you a sense of joy. Fresh flowers always reminds me of God's creation and how he creates everything for a purpose, just like us humans.
Tip: To make flowers last longer, you need to add 3 tablespoons sugar and 2 tablespoons white vinegar per quart of warm water to a vase. Make sure the stems are covered by 3-4"
“The one item that I think every home needs is a piece of artwork that you really love. Artwork is very personal to most people and is a fun way to add your own creative touch to your home.” - Kelli
“Every home (or better yet, every room!) needs something old. I adore the juxtaposition of a room filled with both new pieces and antiques. There’s something so unique and interesting about a piece of furniture with sentimental value or a bit of history. To make a house feel like a home you’ll want it to tell a story. - McKenzie
”Each home needs - comfortable dining chairs! The best conversations and relationships grow around the table - you want your friends and family to be comfortable and settle in - not be thinking about when they can get up.” - Tiffany
“Every home needs a dog, plain and simple, life is just better with wo(man's) best friend(s).” - Lisa
