Finding inspiration in unlikely places led Barbara to the name ‘Lintels & Lallies’. The name came from the movie, ‘Mr. Blandings Builds his Dream House’.
“It’s a name that brings a smile to my face. There is a humorus scene in the movie where the main character (played by Carry Grant) is asked a question he knows nothing about, and his response, well, you can watch it for yourself right here: video clip.
In short, a lintel is a horizontal header beam, and a lally is a support column – commonly used in thresholds. My goal is to create an environment my clients love the moment they cross through their own lintels & lallies!” ~Barbara~
