Emily Motayed Biography

When she cofounded Havenly with her older sister Lee Mayer in 2013, Motayed didn't know much about interior design -- other than she couldn't afford it. After moving into her first "big-girl apartment" in New York, she discovered traditional interior designers weren't interested in working with her modest budget. "Everyone deserves to have a beautiful home, whether you have a $1,000 or a $50,000 budget," she says. Working with a roster of over 200 freelance interior designers, Havenly charges a flat fee of either $79 or $199 per room. Every interaction, from agreeing on a budget to assembling a shopping list, takes place online. The Denver-based company also sells furniture, allowing shoppers to buy a whole Instagram-ready look. In three years, Motayed and Mayer have increased Havenly's team from 2 to 60, raised $13.3 million in funding.
