Meet Lee Mayer (CEO) & Emily Motayed co founders of Havenly. We recently read about Havenly, a successful local start-up in the Denver Post and knew we had to feature them on Denver Vibe. We love the passionate individuals behind these start-up businesses and the energy they bring to our community! 

One of Denver Vibe’s core values is beauty. We value beauty as we believe strongly that those who seek beauty seek excellence in themselves and their creations. We want to showcase and celebrate the beauty our locals see in our community through their eyes and their voice.

Havenly seeks to help make beautiful interior design affordable to everyone. Not everyone has the ability to design a space, but everyone does deserve to love the space they live in. So read on about a local company that helps make Denver just a little more beautiful – one home at a time.

Havenly is an online interior design service, that decorates your space starting from $79/room. Get started at


Where is your business located? Why did you choose this neighborhood to do business in?

Havenly is located in the RiNo area of Denver. It’s an up-and-coming neighborhood that had an amazingly vivacious vibe and also was becoming home to many of our start-up friends, which is why we were attracted to the neighborhood.


What about this neighborhood jives with your business culture?

We love how the RiNo area is a hub of startups and we are able to feed off of this energy! Havenly is a very high energy, high performing team, so we want to be surrounded by people who are like us. And the proximity to amazing new restaurants and bars doesn’t hurt either.


Why are you passionate about your business? What’s the story?

We are passionate about this business because we are committed to making interior design accessible and affordable to everyone. We built this company out of a personal need, for we saw that there was an opening in the market for an affordable option for beautiful interior design. We love being able to give designers the opportunity to design for clients all across the country, and we love being able to make sure our clients are happy with their homes!


What inspired the look of your business/ the design?

Since we are a company that focuses on delivering beautiful design to their clients, that is really the backbone of the design of our website and is truly at the core of our mission statement. We wanted the feel of the company website to be beautiful, design – focused, but also easy for clients to understand and use. Our business is built around beautiful homes, but also the lifestyle that is lived within those homes.
