Michelle Johnson is the home editor at 5280, curating content that highlights the most stylish spaces in Denver. Born and raised in Indianapolis, Johnson earned her degree in journalism at Ball State University before moving to Colorado in 2013. She nixed her original plan of only staying in Denver for a couple of years and has spent the past decade defending her indifference toward skiing and snowboarding.
Before joining the 5280 team in 2019, Johnson was the senior editor at Colorado Homes & Lifestyles and Mountain Living magazines and worked for various marketing agencies. When she’s not whipping up dreamy home content, she’s likely exploring new-to-her mountain towns or contemplating paint colors for her 1920s bungalow in the Cole neighborhood.
