This month marks four years since I launched my online boutique Design Darling. It has been the single greatest learning experience of my life and the ultimate challenge to build something from scratch and then keep it going month after month. It’s fun to reflect on where I was when I started the business (22 years old, blogging and shipping orders from my parents’ dining room table), how far I’ve come (now 26, pinching myself walking into our pretty office every morning), and how many more things I hope to accomplish.
I like to think Design Darling as a brand has grown up with me as a person and, hopefully, that it gets better with each passing year. I’m in love with our current product assortment and am proud to say we’ve added several products to our best seller list this year (most notably, artwork by so many talented people, pineapple jars in gold and white, scalloped desk organizers, tassel earrings in brand new colors, and the ultimate acrylic desk set).
I’m thankful to each and every one of you adorning your homes with our artwork and decor or celebrating a friend’s wedding in a piece of our jewelry. You make it possible for me to keep working hard at a job that challenges and inspires me so much and it’s pretty cool to be even a teeny tiny part of your lives too. Today through Friday at midnight, take 20% off everything on our site with code “turningfour.” We’ll be getting orders out the door as quickly as we can, as thankful for each one as I was this time four years ago. Thank you for four amazing years and hopefully many more!
