our story

Hope & May is a lifestyle brand of luxe fashion, interiors and decor sourced and inspired by extensive global travels internationally to give  Hope & May signature look. Since opening the flagship boutique in Byron Bay Australia it offers travellers from around the globe to experience the Hope & May vibe. 
The company was founded by owner and director Melinda Maguire in 2007. After spending her time residing in Asia and travelling the world, Melinda personally sourced and designed the products that would form the vision behind the concept boutique of Hope & May.
The concept name is derived from the middle names of Melinda's daughters, Kobi and Tahlia, who are strongly involved in the business, from sourcing, designing, to the creativity of Hope & May. Kobi and Tahlia spent their childhood travelling with their mum, Melinda on international buying trips, visiting villages, sourcing and designing.
Melinda, Tahlia and Kobi were exposed to the rich international cultures of the world, which inspires and reflects their mutual drive and passion for the business.
