“What is done in love is done well.”
Vincent Van Gogh
If this is your first time visiting Haven, welcome. Click here to find out more about us! I’m Jody, the owner, and today I want to share about the dreams, passion, and love that led me to launch Haven. I have always loved decorating, designing, and envisioning lovely homes. From early in my childhood, I asked my Mom to purchase Southern Living magazines and floor plan catalogs for my next floor plan or furniture layout inspiration. I loved drawing out floor plans on my tablet, dreaming of one day studying to become an architect. I spent so much time rearranging my bedroom furniture; always looking for that “perfect spot” for my things.
As I grew into my teen years I also developed a desire to be a Buyer for a big city retail store. I loved the idea of predicting brands, trends, and being in the day to day market fashion frenzy. I pursued my passion for business by receiving a Bachelor’s of Business Administration with a double major in Human Resource Management and Marketing. I loved all aspects of business and decided to further my education by receiving my Master’s in Business.
I want you to know this part of me…this passion, dream, and love I have always had for decorating, organizing, and creating a lovely Haven for my loved ones to enjoy. I love how my childhood and teen dreams collided…the same passion for decorating and buying has been the spark behind the creation of Haven. I want the Haven site to include blog posts that inspire as well as share home décor tips and tricks; opportunities for custom furniture orders; home decorating and organizing services; and a beautiful, thoughtful online shop. Let me explain the thought behind each part of Haven.
I want the Haven Shop to carry lovely, happy, and inspired home décor and gifts. Everything will be easily sortable so you can find what you’re looking for. I will have lovely gifts and home décor sets available in the shop to make it simple for you to purchase for your home or as a gift (read here to know why it’s always nice to have a “Happy” closet stocked). We are excited to let you know that the Haven Shop is having a few final touches made to it and it will be launched on, if not before, January 22nd.
I want the Haven Blog to be a place to offer my love for researching home décor tips, sharing favorite home décor designer brands, and documenting new places visited that provide inspiration. The blog posts come directly from my desire to create a lovely Haven wherever I can. All the lovely parts of Haven come from my love and enthusiasm I receive in sharing them with you.
Haven Custom Orders
I fancy the Haven Custom Orders to be a way you can order beautiful home furnishing brands. I love to consult and assist clients in picking the perfect piece or pieces to complete a space. Already have a piece in mind? Contact us to see if we can get it for you at a better price. We look forward to sharing more lovely home furnishing and home decor brands with you when we return from the Atlanta Home Decor & Gift market in a few weeks.
Haven Decorating & Organizing Services
Haven’s Decorating and Organizing services are a special passion of mine…I love connecting with clients in a way that they become friends. My approach is to first learn your preferred style and dream your desired space with you. Next, we’ll work to organize your space, re-purpose your furnishings, decorate, and order new furnishings…all to create the Haven you desire. More details will be announced for Haven’s Decorating and Organizing services throughout 2017!
I hope you leave this post knowing more about why Haven was created and the passion and love that exudes from our desire to help you create a lovely, happy, and inspired Haven.
P.S. – Thank you for joining us on this journey. I am so very thankful to all of our clients, friends, and family that have supported this endeavor to create and launch Haven. We hope Haven will encourage, inspire, and bless others for many years to come.
