Things I love

Love is in the air as Valentine’s Day is fast approaching. This year, the onset of Valentine’s has had me thinking about all of the things that I love and appreciate every day. Here’s an insight into my inspiration...

The Changing Colours of London

While some people say that London simply rains all year round, I believe that every season has its own distinctive personality, with different colours, smells and tones. London is one of biggest inspirations and the changing face of the city is a reason that I am thankful to live somewhere so beautiful.

The Rain

I love the rain as the appearance of landscapes in the wet weather gives me so much creative inspiration. When the rain falls and people rush indoors, I love to wander and soak up the atmosphere of a rarely quiet city. Walking in the Rain has actually inspired two of my most recent designs.


My Family

My family means everything to me and I love spending time with everyone when I travel back to Hungary. My niece is always happy and laughing; she loves to see my bright, colourful scarves, and play with the soft material.


Four-Legged Friends

My family dog, Bizsu, is a great example of why a dog is a man’s best friend. He is always so energetic and playful; he only sees the good in life and he is always happy. It’s impossible not to fall in love with him!

Painting and Creative Expression

For as long as I can remember, I have loved to paint. Since my childhood growing up in Hungary, I have drawn, painted and played around with colours. My artist’s name, ‘Léna’ came about when I was a child experimenting with painting in oil and acrylic. I was born into a family of jewellers, so perhaps the creative spirit was always in the air. It’s a dream come true to grow up and translate my childhood wishes into reality.

I would love to hear about what inspires you and what or who you are in love with this
Valentine’s Day. Let me know on Facebook, Twitter or in the comments.

Enjoy your Valentine’s Day!
Love, Leona x
