Carrie is a contributing writer for HGTV.com, exploring subjects ranging from home improvement to travel. She enjoys decomplicating technical topics and gathering ideas that bring life to living spaces. Carrie's broad appreciation for art and design has space for a fresco in Lyon and a decorative wall treatment in a bedroom. An enthusiastic dabbler, the number of creative endeavors she is mediocre at is growing but she reports great success enjoying them anyway. Carrie divides her free time equally between her husband's cat and her dog, hopefully outdoors.
