Hi, I’m Leah – the LRH in the namesake, and the artful hands behind the brand. For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a love affair with flowers. At the young age of 4 years old, we set-off to Jamaica from my humble home in LA. Naturally, growing up on a tropical island you were bound to spend time playing with lush foliage and fauna growing right in your backyard. Some of my fondest memories are of me running wild in my garden filled with passion fruit flowers, hibiscus, bougainvillea, and ginger flowers. Little did I know then, that one day these memories would help fuel my passion in life for everything flowers. With wanderlust in my blood, everywhere I’ve lived has left a lasting impression on my design eye – From the island flavor of Jamaica, to the colorful tastes of Miami, and the melting pot of New York City. Every culture has brushed vivid hues and left creative streaks on my soul.
My design background goes back as far as I can remember. With an Interior Designer for a mother I’ve been immersed in art & design from a young age. I remember coloring text books of hers on “color theory” and implementing my own designs (Sorry Mom!). Attending the prestigious Design and Architecture Senior High School (DASH) in Miami as a teenager got me started in chasing my design dreams and I learned so much there I didn’t even realize until today. My skills in fashion design from Dash and the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) in Los Angeles are used to this day in all my floral work. Creating dramatic and boutique arrangements is in my DNA. I love every minute of it!
Being a now recent transplant from New York, I took a leap of faith and followed my heart to start my own business when I moved to Memphis and haven’t looked back since. With every arrangement I create, I embrace the beauty of every flower and enhance it at different stages in it’s lifetime to unveil evocative floral wonders through the use of magnificent colors and textures. Each is a work-of-art that comes to life, and is full of heart & soul.
Let’s chat and get to know each other, then allow us to create an artful floral experience like no other for your next event.
