        This season, Leah Cucina is pairing up with Henro Company candles to supply you with the best quality candles you can find. 

         I have been a customer of Kristin's candles for a long time and love her scents, customer service, and dedication to making quality handmade products, made in the USA.

         Her candles make wonderful gifts and she is very speedy with shipping!

         When you shop my link I will receive a small referral commission, thanks so much for supporting two women-owned small businesses. 

         You are going to absolutely love your new candles! 

        Use the code LEAHCUCINA for 10% off your order.

         Thank you!


        How pretty is this dough bowl candle! 


        Henro is gift set heaven! Kristin does a fantastic job with packing and shipping and will even include a handwritten note in your order. Her service is top-notch!



        What a perfect gift for yourself or a friend! So far my favorite scent is Cashmere, but I'm sure you'll love all of Henro's fragrances. If you'd like to try a few scents before you commit to a whole candle, try their mini sampler!



        Love this gift set duo! I personally love candles that don't have labels, because they fit right into my home decor seamlessly and look more luxury.


        Chicago Interior Project Update

        Chicago Interior Project Update

        Old Town Project Update

        I am excited to be working on a new interiors project assisting my client with a full condo refresh! 

        We are currently interviewing contractors and sorting out a plan for selecting finishes. 

        Follow along as we give her loft style condo a light, bright and personal update.

        My client is excited to bring a fresh look to her kitchen by painting the cabinets, replacing the countertops, sink, cabinet hardware, and adding a new island for more functional storage space.

        Right now she has cherry cabinets and black granite countertops. 

        This fresh white look with a pop of color is going to be provide the cheery feeling she is aiming for. 



        For her guest bathroom, we will be doing a cosmetic makeover with new wall paint, painting her current vanity, replacing lighting, shower fixtures, and replacing the current granite sink top and sink fixtures. Originally my client considered going with a full bath remodel, but has opted to prioritize other projects for now. 

        We are going to keep the existing tile to stay on budget and bring a light bright freshness and make this bathroom a more comfortable spa-like space. 



        My client is really excited to have a more comfortable, personalized and colorful living area. Her favorite color is red, so we are excited to bring in some red accents with a quality wool rug that can stand up to pets. I think the blue will help the red really pop! 

        The main update in the living area will be refinished hardwood floors, a new mantle, paint, and lighting. 



        One of the biggest functional space adds will be re-arranging her guest bedroom, which extends just off the main living area. We are going to invest in a huge space saver, a murphy bed with tons of storage! She's also going to be transforming the room into an office, so she has a comfortable space to work from home and stay organized. 

        Other than the furniture, we are hoping to add some new drapery and light fixture. Not much is needed in this space to make a big impact.

        THE STUDIO

        California Snack Board

        California Snack Board

        The perfect board for when you're wanting fresh colors and produce with your happy hour snack.

        Keep these photos and tips for inspiration the next time you're entertaining guests! Everyone wins with this board, because there's something for everyone (even the health nuts! )

        I made this board TWICE while I was on my California trip and both times it was a great hit. 

        Here's the general layout: 

        Fruits: blueberries, blackberries, kumquats/ manquats/ clementines/ cherries (or whatever fruits look great and in-season)

        Cheese: Cream cheese, feta, white aged cheddar, havarti

        Dips: Half Cream Cheese/ Half Blackberry Jam spread, Hummus

        Chips: Pita Chips, Baguette slices, walnuts would be nice

        Garnish: Micro greens! Get ones that taste good to you. 

        And if you see any pretty flowers, add those as a non -edible garnish!


        This is my favorite part: 

        It's a simple ramekin bowl filled with 1/2 cream cheese and 1/2 blackberry preserve jam. 

        I added a few berries on top for garnish with a little mint too. 

        This is so tasty on the board!
