MEET TEAM HAVEN
THE STORY OF CORRIE & JENNIFER
The School Years
In 1996 we meet at high school in Kent, England. It’s BFFs at first sight. The friendship endures despite being separated at university and studying abroad (Jennifer: Amsterdam, Corrie: Florence).
The London Years
Jennifer is an in-house lawyer at Burberry (great perks). Corrie is a fashion journalist at Harpers Bazaar, and later Glamour (also great perks). We marry within a month of each other, then move five minutes apart. We hone our nerdy organizational skills in a variety of living spaces and swiftly develop a shared brand of stylish tricks and storage hacks.
The International Moves
2012: Jennifer moves to New York and becomes a glossy Manhattanite. Corrie moves to LA and ditches the heels for Converse. Two years later, Corrie returns to London and Jennifer moves to the Greenwich ‘burbs. The constant moves teach us the value of streamlining our homes. And we learn how a space that looks and feels beautiful is more likely to stay that way. Eighteen months later, the stars align and Corrie moves to Greenwich. Reunited at last!
Fast forward to 2018. Twenty two years of friendship, thirteen moves and four kids later, we realise that while our homes have changed our philosophy hasn’t. To transform a home into a haven you need to work from the inside out. By focusing on the lining of your home – it’s cupboards and closets, shelves and storage – you lay the groundwork that allows your overlooked spaces to shine.
Haven is born
We believe everyone deserves a place to recharge, retreat and relax. Which is where we come in. By redefining the way you organize, we’ll transform your home, the Haven way. So consider us your home’s juice cleanse, 12-hour sleep and reset button rolled into one. We look forward to working with you!
