Design Darling

Can you believe we are already half way through the week? Last night I completed my design fundamentals course, this evening I begin my textiles course. In college I studied fashion design & marketing, I had to take a fabric course, it will be interesting to see the relation between the two courses(I know one is related to furniture and one clothing...but I wonder if I will be able to transfer any of my former teachings in this course?) The rest of my day is filled with an engagement shoot at a tea parlour, picking up a bar cart, and meetings!! Busy day!

Today's board is inspired by one of my favorite lifestyle bloggers. Mackenzie Horan of Design Darling has amazing taste and I would like to share my interpretation of some of the snipets she has shown us into her new NYC apartment! Always a fan of blue and white(myself included) she has decorated with feminine prints, classic pieces, with an ivy league twist. Also you must visit her boutique, everything is just "darling"!! I can't wait to see her apartment in full, or head over for some seriously fab style!! xo

If you are interested in any of the sources I used contact me, or have a look at my Pinterest boards!

Laura Collins Design will provide you with insight and guidance on how you can turn your home or office into a stylish reflection of your unique personality. Please contact me if you are interested in discussing the different design services I offer.

Always Stay Graceful,



  1. Adore the basket the fiddle leaf fig resides in. Obsessed!!

  2. The two slip covered chairs are gorgeous - they would be perfect for a classy nautical look. Thanks for the inspiration!


Thanks so much for all of the lovely comments!
Always Stay Graceful,
