Enjoy a homemade cookie

We’re of the mind that any day is a good day for a homemade cookie, especially one that’s served warm from the oven. But if you need a legitimate excuse to indulge, look no further than National Homemade Cookies Day on October 1. To celebrate, we asked Rebecca Proctor, our creative director […]

Community and caring with our neighbors

Community and caring with our neighbors

Being neighborly is a concept defined not by distance, but by community and caring. At MacKenzie-Childs, we invite our neighbors near and far to be a part of our experience.

A fresh front entry for fall

A fresh front entry for fall

Autumn is one of the best times of year here in Upstate New York, which is home to our farm and studios. The days are cooler and crisper, making it the perfect time to savor the brilliant colors of the turning leaves and the crunch of red ripe apples. But you don’t have […]

What’s cooking in The Entertaining Kitchen

What’s cooking in The Entertaining Kitchen

In the not so distant past, the kitchen served a single function: cooking. The space was limited, it was closed off from the rest of the house, and it certainly wasn’t entertaining. Trends in home design show all that has changed. Today’s kitchens are often called the heart of the home, and with […]

Colorful. Patterned. Layered. Eclectic. That sounds like a perfect description of the look of MacKenzie-Childs, doesn’t it? But it’s also the style of Rebecca Proctor, our creative director and chief brand officer. Coincidence? Probably not. In fact, even Rebecca likens her fashion sense to that of our iconic piece, the over-the-top Ridiculous Bench, a potpourri of pattern, paint, and trim. “I’m a bit of this, a bit […]

Garden Diary: Summer in full bloom

Garden Diary: Summer in full bloom

Summertime brings rewards and challenges to the gardens at our studios in Aurora, New York. The rewards are the lush and abundant blooms, of course. The challenges are the weather conditions. Rainfall in our corner of Upstate New York has been down this year, while temperatures have soared to 90 degrees or more […]

Getting a handle on knobs

Getting a handle on knobs

Consider the knob, if you will. It’s designed for function, for sure, and it can certainly transform a dresser or cabinet from ordinary to extraordinary. But a knob can be a whole lot of fun, too. We make more than a dozen different knobs, and we’re adding to that collection all the time. […]
