About

I'm a Finnish girl living in the Netherlands, where life took me on a grand adventure over 15 years ago.

I'm a creative soul, a boho girl at heart and a BIG dreamer - working on turning my dreams into reality. My goal is to make by living through my creativity as a successful entrepreneur, and to have my own dreamy creative space - my design studio - located somewhere by the water and surrounded by nature. Here I see myself drawing my inspiration from the beauty and harmony around me and successfully following my passions while spreading positive inspiration all around me.

Being a mother, I want to be a good role model to my daughter and show her the importance and power of following your passions and your dreams, working diligently towards your goals, believing in yourself no matter what, staying authentic, paying no heed to nay-sayers, being kind, compassionate and a beacon of light while inspiring others to do the same.

I am so happy to be able to show her what a positive and energizing outlet creative expression can be. I've been creative for as long as I can remember, and was raised by a mother who always encouraged my siblings and me to develop our individual creativity, whether it be by following art classes, playing an instrument or making all birthday-, Christmas-, Mother's- and Father's Day cards and gifts ourselves.

My creative journey started in earnest several years back when I was going through a dark period in my life. Slowly but surely I managed to pull myself out of it by turning to creativity as a positive outlet. I first started an interior blog and connected with positive and like minded people, moved on to re-decorating my daughter's room by creating all decor items myself from wall art to bedding etc., took an interest to photography and finally was inspired to start creating unique wall decor. This is when I first opened my HAVEN OF HARMONY shop on Etsy.

My shop offers unique wall decor for various interiors and occasions. The main emphasis is on beach and boho chic decor, along with signs with a more romantic yet quite neutral touch - perfect for anniversaries and weddings, and as gifts for both him and her. Each piece is handmade with great care and a high attention to detail, ensuring that each sign is truly one of a kind. Whether you're in search of an addition to your own living space or looking for an original gift for that someone special - this is your place to shop.

My canvas signs consist of a thin, yet evenly solid and robust 3-5 mm thick canvas board, and are covered with a neatly stretched fabric giving the signs a softer texture and a more 3 dimensional appearance.
Most signs come with a decorative twine border adding that little extra something to the creation. I love using natural materials such as linen fabric combined with jute twine and braided jute ribbon. The neutral look makes these signs just as suitable for both him and her.

The beach themed canvases are multi-layered 3D creations consisting of a combination of various fabrics, acrylic paint, wood parts, washi or fabric tape, twine details as well as fabric and decoupage covered cardboard pieces.
All canvas signs with a text are hand stamped by me, as are the decorative linen fabrics used for my boho signs.

Each canvas sign I make is a special labor of love and I put a lot of time, effort and detail into each of them. I love creating personalized signs and often get custom requests from my customers. The custom orders tend to inspire me to think outside the box and to broaden my horizon.

There's something very special about handmade products, and I'm so glad to be part of this wonderful group of people - shop keepers and customers alike - who appreciate it as much as I do.

I hope you enjoy your visit to my shop!
