The first issue of Haven, the country’s newest home and living magazine, is now selling on stands across New Zealand.
A magazine for every Kiwi homeowner, renovating enthusiast, first home buyer, empty nester or apartment dweller, Haven is printed monthly.
This month’s cover star, surfer Holly Quinn, and her husband, Jackson, invite readers into their brand new Gisborne beachside home.
The first issue also features a beautifully curated Grey Lynn apartment which provides a masterclass in small-scale living and a Wellington bungalow which receives a monochrome makeover.
Haven editor Vanessa Marshall says: “With many of us spending more time at home than ever, our homes are our safe haven from the challenges we face beyond our front doors.
“By nature we are all curious and like to peek inside other people’s houses. We Kiwis even have a name for it: sticky-beaking. So when I was putting together this first ever issue of Haven, my main objective was to create a lifestyle and interiors magazine in which real New Zealanders with real homes could take a look at the many and varied houses we have around our country, while seeing something of ourselves reflected inside them.”
This issue includes a working-from-home feature which highlights creative Kiwis who have transformed old sheds, bedroom corners and living rooms into fully functioning workspaces; green-fingered guru, Rachel Clare, who digs deep to reveal what to plant now; and florist extraordinaire Georgie Malyon who shows how to make an artful and easy bouquet.
Closing the magazine is Haven’s resident pet, Maude, a cavoodle who lives a charmed life with Wellington interiors aficionado Amanda Holland.
Beyond the print publication, Haven will connect with Kiwi women 24/7 across its website, social and eDM channels.
