Hi, I'm Karin (pronounced kuh-RIN, not cair-rin)!

I’m a mom to a very active boy, wife, avid traveler, and design professional currently dividing my time between Northern California and Northern Virginia (with former pit stops in Thailand, London, Los Angeles, Boston, and New York). 

After 20 years in marketing and interior design (with a stint at a unicorn start-up in Silicon Valley), I left corporate life to start MY TROVE BOX. The idea for MY TROVE BOX was developed over time during my many business and family trips where I was always on the lookout for that one (or two!) truly special souvenir to bring home. Finding a unique décor piece that was locally produced within the region I was visiting was important to me; I didn't want to bring into our home just anything only to find it had been mass-produced and could be sourced at a big retailer. I wanted decor pieces that celebrated the craftsperson behind the product, possessed a story, and had provenance. 

Today, with many of us juggling family and working from home, refreshing our space and surrounding ourselves with items that bring us joy and infusing soul into our environment becomes more important. I was inspired to provide a simpler, valuable, and purpose-driven way to source for beautifully crafted home décor and accessories that fit with our modern lifestyle - and share it with those who are looking for the same!  

I look forward to having you join our journey at MY TROVE BOX!
