Kitty Lascurain is freelance journalist and mother of two with over a decade of experience writing about home design, home life, parenting, travel, and other lifestyle topics for magazines like Military Spouse Magazine, Cambridge Style, and Style Weddings.
Kitty has written for multiple publications in both the US and abroad, including Real Simple, Central Florida Lifestyles Magazine, Military Spouse Magazine and several of Cambridge Newspapers' most popular UK magazines, including Cambridge Style, Style Weddings, and The Cambridgeshire Journal.
As a parent with a deep love of design, Kitty loves curating the most beautiful and creative spaces for children for her readers.
"Kids' rooms are special," Kitty explains. "Whether you are planning your first nursery, creating your little one's first "big kid" room, or helping your teen design a space for work and play, you are not just decorating: You're marking a milestone. Every new design is both a celebration of who they are and an opportunity to help them grow."
When not writing about nurseries and kids' rooms, Kitty enjoys spending time with her two little girls, whom she credits with much of the inspiration for her work.
"You have to be a parent to write for parents," says Kitty. "Having raised two babies of my own, I understand that a nursery or playroom must be more than beautiful. It has to be functional. It has to work for you and your family on a daily basis. I try to make that my focus."
Kitty graduated with honors from the University of Central Florida, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Journalism from UCF's Nicholson School of Communication. She also holds an MA degree from the University of Oklahoma.
As a design writer, Kitty closely follows the interior design industry, subscribing to trend alerts, communication with industry professionals and attending workshops and conventions whenever possible.
