I'm Mackenzie, 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!
