I am Melissa Rubini Smith, The Mayfair Hall founder. I live between Manhattan, Europe and Tuxedo Park (where Emily Post and Dorothy Draper called home) with my husband Adam, our three children (Henry, Stella and Elliot), and cavapoo Baxter.

With my characteristic emphasis on feminine and timeless aesthetics, I bring you my unique take on a well-lived life through curated product collections, bespoke lifestyle design services, and our Living Beautifully blog.

Born in Brazil, I grew up in New York, where I developed my passion and flair for style while being a Fashion Director and attending fashion shows across the world.

After attending Parsons School of Design, I further developed my business experience studying at Harvard University and am currently finalizing my Interior Design specialization at the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design.

Having collaborated with Bergdorf Goodman, Vogue, and Prada, among many other companies and celebrities my new lifestyle brand, The Mayfair Hall, is inspired by my passion for making everyday life beautiful.

I hope you love it, it was made especially for you!

xx, Melissa
