The Design Milk Team



Caroline Williamson, Editor-in-Chief

When 7-year-old Caroline made it her mission to redecorate her room weekly, build endless LEGO villages, and repeatedly paint and reconstruct Barbie’s dream house, she was either obsessive or a young design enthusiast in the making. After getting her BFA in photography from SCAD, she moved to Los Angeles and worked for a glass artist + designer, which gave her insight into all aspects of the design world. When she’s not working or on an airplane, she’s usually searching for vintage wares, doing New York Times crossword puzzles, or reworking playlists on Spotify. She can be found on Instagram @element75.
