Alicia Lacy - Features Editor

Alicia is lover of vintage patterns, modern lines, and everything Jonathan Adler has ever created. The daughter of an artist and a database operator, she learned early on the importance of balancing creativity with careful analysis (maybe this is why she finds it so hard to settle on the perfect paint color for the living room). She is inspired by the DIY world, and loves to learn as she DIH (does it herself). She currently lives in St. Paul, MN with her wonderful husband, Bruno, and their young children, Ayla and Zev.
