On the surface, HAUME is a lifestyle and decor brand on a mission to create goods that inspire women to curate home sanctuaries and pursue whole life living. After you spend some time engaging with the brand online, you may start to see a glimmer of something precious underneath the luxury candles and linen sheets. Some have called it authenticity, while others choose to revere it as intimacy. At its core, HAUME is built on the idea that more than anything, we all need to give and receive humanity in order to see our true selves. I’m just a woman trying to be the kind of adult her inner child deserved to feel safe with.
Sometimes, I wish I had a more intriguing and poignant story to tell, but the truth is that I got tired of only being the version of myself that my mother had the capacity to cultivate. I had to hide the parts of myself that craved above and beyond what she accepted as beautiful or successful. My bedroom became a haven for my truest essence…a place where I could be alone to expand and elevate my surroundings without having to worry that I would make anyone feel excluded or less than. It’s where I learned I could control how I felt, how my day went, and how my life shaped up because my room was an intimate conversation between my history and my hope.
