About Us

LEARN MORE

If you’ve found your way here, you’re most likely a lifestyle creative, business owner, inspiration seeker or simply aspire to live beautifully everyday. Living a beautiful life stretches far beyond a perfectly styled shelf or a gorgeously set table… it comes from being intentional in anything and everything that makes you excited about life. Whether that’s cozying up in your favorite corner of your home with family, crafting a homemade meal or pouring your heart and soul into a business or side hustle that you love. That’s just what we aspire to do with this little community.

AND SAY HELLO

Connect WITH US

With over eight years experience in creating digital editorial content, Melissa's passion is to inspire others to infuse their everyday moments with beauty and intention. She launched HAVEN in August 2018 with a distinct mission to create an online community—one that thoughtfully connects inspiration seekers with lifestyle creatives, by delivering quality content and empowering entrepreneurs. Shortly after, she set forth the inception of the HAVEN Workshop, a boutique-style learning experience for designers. 

Melissa currently lives nearby the coastal city of Newburyport with her husband Shawn, their son Chase, and sweet rescue pup Savannah. She may reside on the east coast but she has a penchant for breezy California aesthetic, an appreciation for the art of entertaining and a love for cooking.
