Lois Vinsel opened her retail shop LOLA in November 2006. Located in Berkeley, California LOLA quickly became a destination for contemporary design in the Bay Area. Products from LOLA were featured in the New York Times, Departures, Sunset, Harper’s Bazaar, California Home + Design and Lucky magazines. LOLA was included in the San Francisco 2nd Ed eat.shop guide and profiled in Remodelista's April 2010 "Shopper's Diary."
After working on a number of interior design projects while LOLA was open, Lois closed the shop in 2011 and turned her focus to interior design full time. Lola Home Design services range from home styling to comprehensive renovation projects. Lois works with the finest local builders and artisans to create contemporary environments that are highly personal, livable and playful.
Highlights from 2014-2015 include the complete main floor and kitchen renovation of a vintage Berkeley Craftsman home, a master bedroom and bathroom overhaul in the Oakland Hills, and a public space makeover in an Oakland restaurant. Lois is a Bay Area native and UC Davis graduate. She and her husband Peter have been happy residents of Oakland - Berkeley since 1997.
