Kristy and Rob Paratte

Haven Studios has been an absolute pleasure to work and collaborate with. Christin's keen eye for spacial and decorative design helped our family transform our beloved Lake Tahoe cabin into a modern, cozy space for our family, friends and pups to enjoy. 

Christin’s background in engineering provided solutions that were previously unsolvable. 
She was able to tailor and execute a beautiful plan that worked perfectly for our family.  

Our experience in Tahoe was so exceptional that we have hired Christin for our Bay Area home.  

Her approach to design is innovative, unique, and very well thought out. 

Ali Merrill

Working with Christin and Haven Studios was my first time hiring a professional interior designer. I had a tricky office space in El Dorado Hills to decorate and she was able to help me pick unique and comfortable furniture and create an aesthetic that my clients love.

If you want your home or office to really be unique and reflect your personal style and energy, Christin has a way of picking up your vision but enhancing it with her own creativity and design knowledge.I highly recommend her for any scale project. She is highly professional and takes her time to ensure you are happy with your completed project.

She made the whole process seamless, comfortable and fun. 

Katie Roe

 With her background in architecture she brought a fresh perspective to our project, creating a home that is not only livable but gorgeous to look at.

Whether you're looking to renovate your kitchen or designing a complete remodel, I recommend Christin. She’s such a pleasure to spend time with!

Christin has an exceptional eye for design and talent for creating functional living spaces that are unique to each individual client.
