Fab Friday: Mackenzie of Design Darling
It's the first Friday of 2013 and I'm chatting with the creative force behind the fabulous blog Design Darling. Wether it's interior design or fashion, Design Darling is one of my go-to sources for all things inspiring. Read on to keep up with this redheaded blogger who is making big moves this year (like moving to NYC - how exciting!) all while crossing off her 101 in 1001 like a superstar! RB: When writing your posts, do you have a creative process? MH: I keep lists of post ideas in various notebooks — one next to my laptop while I work, another on my bedside table, one in my handbag, etc. Inspiration is everywhere! RB: What’s your ultimate source of inspiration? MH: I think it's easy to get tunnel vision when you're reading lots of blogs and spending time on Pinterest. Real inspiration comes from family, friends, travel — getting out there and living! I love browsing in local boutiques and getting lost in a bookstore. RB: What’s your greatest professional accomplishment? MH: Launching my online boutique! I've never done anything so consistently challenging or rewarding. RB: What’s the one thing you can’t live without? MH: My puppy, Rory. He's exceptionally naughty but I never stay mad at him for long!
