Darling really is the perfect description for Mackenzie Horan, her fashion and design blog Design Darling, and her adorable New York City studio apartment. Although her space may be small — only 300 square feet! — it is absolutely packed with sweet and stylish fixtures that make it the perfect space for Mackenzie and her furry baby Rory. This is one stylish space that is definitely small but mighty, and we love how Mackenzie has decorated it in a way that is completely true to her own design sensibilities.

When and why did you begin your blog, Design Darling?
I started Design Darling in 2009 as a creative space for combining my interests in fashion, interiors and writing. I had no idea it would become such a big part of my life! Today it’s my visual diary — a place to share what I’m wearing, what I’m working on and who’s inspiring me at any given time. I’m passionate about sharing my goals (I keep a list of 101 things to do in 1001 days!) and encouraging my readers to be their best, happiest and most stylish selves!
