It's so nice to meet you.

Makini Regal Martin is a published floral, event, and interior designer. Trinidadian-born and Brooklyn-bred, Makini always possessed a natural gift for design. She inherited her love for flowers from her two grandmothers, both avid gardeners and flower enthusiasts. After graduating from Columbia University and honing a successful career in management consulting, Makini turned her keen eye for design and love of flowers into a blossoming business when she launched Makini Regal Designs in 2011. Her design work has been published by New York Magazine, Essence, Design Sponge, The Knot, Munaluchi Bride, Black Enterprise, and many others. After the birth of her daughter, Zuri Rose, Makini was inspired to launch a lifestyle blog and write a children’s book series. The Wonderful World of Zuri Rose: Flowers A–Z is the first book of that series. When not immersed in all things flowers and design, Makini spends her days in her Brooklyn brownstone with her husband, Jason, and daughter. You can find Makini on Instagram @makiniregal.
