Ta da! Design Darling got a total makeover and I’m so excited to share it with all of you! It was definitely time for a little sprucing up but I’d say this is a head-to-toe transformation, don’t you think? I enlisted my friend Hanna of GADABOUT CREATIVE to elevate and streamline everything and I’m obsessed with the way it turned out.
A few features you won’t want to miss? The very official Design Darling travel guide, with endless recommendations for where to eat, shop, drink, pamper, and frolic in New York and Nantucket as well as some of my favorite discoveries from recent travels. (Crossing several goals of my 101 in 1001 list!) The wishlist in the sidebar will be updated frequently with design and fashion finds I’m coveting. And the images at the top and bottom of the homepage will take you straight to the boutique, a pretty way to tie together both endeavors under the Design Darling umbrella. Oh and the handwriting in the header belongs to yours truly… I live for handwritten notes so it feels like the perfect personal touch!
I’ve been obsessing over every last detail so I’m dying to hear your feedback! I’m sure we’ll be tweaking a few things over the next couple weeks so please let me know if there’s anything that looks a little off from your browser or reader. Cheers to Design Darling 2.0 — I hope you love it! xx

  1. Hey Mackenzie. I wanted to let you know that for some reason your new posts aren’t showing up on Internet Explorer. I assumed you just hadn’t been posting because of your birthday and the trip to the Caymans, but I got on Mozilla and was surprised that there were a ton of posts I hadn’t seen before. Love the new look!


  2. Love the new layout- looks amazing! You should use hyperlinks in the Travel Guide to connect to the post that you talk about the different places listed- I’d love to hear your input on each place!

  7. Hello Mackenzie!

    LOVE the reveal and am excited to follow along with your new endeavors. I sent you an email a few days ago (from Nikita but a different email address than what I’m posting from now) and was wondering if that was the correct place to reach you. mackenzie at design darling dot com? I know you must be inundated with emails, just checking if I could expect a reply 🙂 thank you!!

The whole design is perfect for your aesthetic – from the navy and pink details to the peonies. Love it and am so excited to continue following along. This might just inspire me to give myself a kick in the butt finishing my own redesign I began a few months back. Thanks for the inspiration and congrats! xx
