Our roots

Great design is more than creating magazine worthy spaces. It’s creating an environment that feels comforting as much as it serves your families daily functional needs. The Harbour Mill Design team was founded by Melissa in 2019 on the principles of creating warm, family-friendly homes that emphasize quality, natural materials and great craftsmanship in a timeless and personal style.


We know a well designed home can do more than impress others – it has the power to simplify and enhance your daily life.  Your home needs to be both a place of refuge and a well-oiled machine.  A well designed home can inspire the life you’ve always longed to live.


Our carefully crafted design process allows us to fully understand your functional needs while uncovering your unique design style. We take the time to fully understand your needs and guide you through a personalized design solution for your home and family. When it comes to implementation, we work with reputable contractors and tradespeople to bring our vision to life with a move-in ready result.
