Katherine Owen is a writer and editor with a passion for home design. In her personal life, it started long ago, but professionally she first kindled her love for design as the assistant Home & Garden editor at Southern Living magazine. There, Katherine pitched, wrote, and produced print and digital content about everything from classic kitchen design to container gardening. (And tagged along for every photoshoot and market trip possible!).

Always a Southerner at heart, Katherine still considers Birmingham, Alabama home.
