Mackenzie Horan

A 24-YEAR-OLD REDHEAD LIVING IN NEW YORK CITY. I STARTED DESIGN DARLING IN 2009 AND LAUNCHED AN ONLINE BOUTIQUE BY THE SAME NAME IN 2012. I GREW UP IN CONNECTICUT, GRADUATED FROM BUCKNELL, AND NOW LIVE AND WORK IN A TINY STUDIO WITH MY PUPPY RORY.

DESIGN DARLING IS A BLOG ABOUT THE PEOPLE, PLACES, AND THINGS I LOVE. I WRITE ABOUT FASHION AND INTERIORS, KEEP A LIST OF 101 THINGS I’D LIKE TO ACCOMPLISH IN 1001 DAYS, AND SHARE BITS AND PIECES OF MY LIFE I HOPE YOU’LL BE ABLE TO RELATE TO AS WELL. DESIGN DARLING IS MY HAPPY PLACE — AND I HOPE IT BECOMES ONE FOR YOU TOO.

My middle name is Elizabeth and my favorite colors are hot pink and navy blue. I enjoy cocktail rings and snail mail. I delight in to do lists and love to travel but hate to unpack. I will forever associate fall with new school supplies. I dream of color-coordinated closets and setting foot on each of the seven continents. My drink of choice is an Arnold Palmer and my favorite place in the world is Nantucket. I believe that happiness is a stack of unread magazines and that books should indeed be judged by their covers. I've been known to revive old furniture with a fresh coat of paint and I love a monogram on, well, just about anything!
