Ashlyn is a newsletter editor for HGTV.com and TravelChannel.com. Her love of design started in her childhood when her family owned a paint and wallpaper store. She tries to embrace the black floors in her rental home, a shotgun-style house built in 1910, but dreams of renovating her own place one day. She looks at real estate listings for fun. You can usually find her at a thrift store or trying to find the best bread in any city she visits.
