Meet Kimberly Duran
DIYer. Design Lover. Pet Obsessed. Freelance Writer. Content Marketer.
Hello! I’m Kimberly and I’ve loved interior design for as long as I can remember. It began in my childhood when I claimed my mother’s interior design coffee table book as my own and that love continued until I found myself decorating flats for my friends after they’d seen what I’d done in my own. However, it wasn’t until 2010 when I purchased an Edwardian home on the outskirts of Manchester in need of a refresh and started my blog, Swoon Worthy, that my passion was fully realised.
A few things about my style… I am an unashamed maximalist who loves colour and pattern and interiors with personality: Gold luxe finishes, cheeky animal prints, touchable textural fabrics, bold pattern mixing, a touch of vintage and bohemian-style comfort. When they come together, I like to describe the resulting mix as Eclectic Boho Glam.
On my blog, I share everything from large-scale DIYs to crafty projects, trends that are catching my eye and I help others to express their personality, from budget decorating ideas to luxury splurges.
In August 2017, I expanded my content to a full range of lifestyle topics, including food, fashion, beauty and travel. In March 2018, we moved to Shrewsbury, Shropshire into a 4-bed Victorian home ripe for renovation.
Today, thousands of readers across the globe look to Swoon Worthy for accessible design ideas and inspiration for their homes and their lives.

Kimberly was a pleasure to work with and always met our tight deadlines; it is these things coupled with her unique sense of style and original ideas that make her a huge asset when coordinating blogger collaborations. We have worked with Kimberly several times because of this and each time, she has given her all and got behind every project—whether through utilising blogger and social media platforms or through word of mouth.Naomi Nightingale
Kimberly was absolutely a joy to work with. She was very professional, always prompt with her deliverables and went the extra mile in her promotion of our event. Her comprehension of effective social media practices and overall target audience reach proved astounding. Her event earned the most coverage of any we had run previously and set the standard for how we work with other guest curators to this day.Meghan Young
We always enjoy working with influencers who have plenty of creative ideas and can bring their own personality to our projects and Kimberly certainly has bags of this! Collaborating with Swoon Worthy on our client’s Look Book project was fantastic and Kimberly’s organisation and understanding of our brief were just what we needed. We look forward to working with her again the near future.Aimee Horwich
