Jen La Bella is a native New Yorker living in Los Angeles with her screenwriter husband, two dogs and two cats. She's a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology, where she learned the art of window display design. There, she was able to learn technical crafting skills but also the value of unconventional materials. She's the handy one in the relationship (sorry, Max) and is often seen knee-deep in a project.

Hosting is her thing but she rarely has much of a budget. Instead she thrifts, borrows, crafts and gets creative to make the magic happen. In the words of Tim Gunn "Make it work designers!".

Jen started House La Bella because she believes that everyone can adopt these principles and make magic with what you have within reach. With this shift in perspective, anyone can create a beautiful home, party, gift, and dare we say... life with a little creativity and resourcefulness.
