  • Other interests include needlepoint and Friday night Container Store trips. 
  • Before joining the Domino team, Lydia was a freelance writer for Modern Luxury.


Lydia started at Domino as an editorial intern back in 2017, predominantly writing design news stories and celebrity content—she’s interviewed design stars like Leanne Ford, Sarah Sherman Samuel, Brigette Romanek, Nate Berkus, and more. She eventually got hooked on all things renovation, so you can catch her curating Domino’s weekly Reno email newsletter or in-real-life at annual design shows like KBIS.


Lydia graduated from Wake Forest University in 2017 with a double major in art history and communications.
