Hi there! I am Erika. Welcome you to The Corner Haven!
Just to give you a little background about myself: I am a native Texan who, after many years of travel, had the happy fortune to land in sunny, Southern California. I've taken a path a little less traveled, but it has been well worth the trip. After graduating from Texas Tech University, I became a Marine officer. After my tenure there, I attended Georgetown University and completed a bachelor's degree in nursing. After many years of travel, I was finally able to plant some roots! I opened The Corner Haven, where we are dedicated to all things interior decorating.
Throughout my life travels, there has remained one constant: my obsession with nesting and making a home that brings me joy. I have lived all over this great nation. And with all my moves, I always felt most comfortable when I was at home, wherever that was. So in each house I lived in, whether I was there for a short time or long term, I strived to make it my safe haven. A place where I could retreat and regroup. A home that felt cozy, comfortable, and reflected things that made me feel grounded. A home that I could relax in.
My inspirations usually start with fabrics. It is so vast and versatile in the world of fabrics! There are never enough samples. In fact, I became so obsessed with fabrics, that I bought a sewing machine and educated myself on how to make my own custom drapery and pillow covers so that I could change them out any time I wanted! It is amazing to watch a space change when you add custom drapery.
So that is what brought me here! I opened my own venue for sharing my love of interior decorating, accessories and custom drapery. It is my hope that what I offer here inspires you in creating the home you have always dreamed of.
Thank you for being here! I look forward to working with you.
Erika, Owner of The Corner Haven
