Every home has a story, and they are as vast and varied as the world is wide. But they all start with inspiration, and inspiration starts with our surroundings. That’s what home is. Family. Friends. A sense of place. An amazing view. It is all part of what makes a space a home because your home is where you truly live. As homeowners ourselves we understand that your best life begins with a home that inspires you.

“Love yourself first and everything else falls into line.”

— Lucille Ball

It takes a lot of confidence to become a successful performer, and if anyone knew that, it was Lucille Ball. The “I Love Lucy” star is one of the most popular entertainers of all time, but Ball had a rough upbringing in Jamestown, NY, where her family struggled to put food on the table. As a teen, she moved to New York City for drama school, where she worked hard to find her confidence in a competitive scene. Eventually, her belief in herself paid off. After getting her start as a model, she moved to Hollywood in the early 1930s to pursue a career in television, finally landing her breakout role in CBS’ “I Love Lucy,” co-starring with her real-life husband, Desi Arnaz. In this quote, Ball credits confidence and self-love with her success, reflecting that “you really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.”
