Mackenzie Horan

A 27-YEAR-OLD REDHEAD LIVING IN GREENWICH, CONNECTICUT. I STARTED DESIGN DARLING IN 2009 AND RAN AN ONLINE BOUTIQUE BY THE SAME NAME FROM 2012 TO 2017. I GREW UP IN DARIEN, CONNECTICUT, GRADUATED FROM BUCKNELL IN 2011, AND HAVE SINCE LIVED IN SAN FRANCISCO, NEW YORK, AND DALLAS. NOW I’M BACK IN MY HOME STATE WITH MY FIANCE WILL AND OUR COCKAPOO 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 nautical stripes 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!
