We are a community of lifestyle creatives who inspire beautiful everyday moments by delivering the dreamiest home tours, motivational interviews and tips for intentional living. 



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.

From interior designers, bloggers and home decor shops to photographers and branding experts, we're honored to represent the best in the biz. 

Beyond sharing inspiring content, building community and celebrating entrepreneurs is a big part of our mission, which is where the idea for The List was born.

with us


With over eight years of 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 mission to create an online community that thoughtfully connects inspiration seekers with lifestyle creatives, by delivering quality content and empowering entrepreneurs to embrace their purpose.

When she's not busy developing HAVEN's next story idea, organizing workshops or growing our online community, you can find her spending time with her husband and little boy, Chase, in their sweet coastal city of Newburyport. She has an appreciation for breezy California style, loves a great pair of jeans with a classic white tee and finds so much joy in entertaining family and friends.
