Lessons from Local Leaders:

Lori Duval & Julie

Imagine creating a business with your mirror image – quite literally. Our latest guests, a pair of visionary identical twins, have done just that, nurturing their shared passion for home design into a thriving 26-year legacy. Together, they recount the evolution from their initial careers to becoming connoisseurs of craftsmanship, proving that with a blend of dedication and that unique ‘twin telepathy,’ building an empire is more than just a dream. As they share their commitment to high-end, personalized service, you’ll be whisked away into a world where every stitch and hammer swing is a note in the symphony of their clients’ stories.

When the world was put to the test by the pandemic, so was the resilience of businesses everywhere. Lori & Julie unveil how they, with their distinct personalities and strengths, navigated such turbulent times. They transformed challenges into lessons of patience and the art of communication, serving as a beacon of inspiration for entrepreneurs and dreamers alike. Join us as we celebrate their tenacity and explore the opening of a new kitchen and bath showroom, marking not only a business milestone but the heartwarming introduction of the next generation into their family enterprise.

Finally, we delve into the essence of what it means to ‘just be lovely.’ These sisters believe in the power of spreading kindness, a lesson instilled by their mother and grandmother, and one that resonates in everything they do – from the way they approach design to the infectious joy of one’s smile. Lori & Julie’s stories are a stirring reminder that amidst the hustle of ambition, taking the time to share a moment of loveliness can have a profound impact. So, settle in and let the warmth of their journey inspire you to find the beautiful details in your own life.
