Lydia Geisel has been on the editorial team at Domino since 2017. Today, she writes and edits home stories for, including home tours, before and afters, and DIYs. Lydia lives in New York City.


  • Enjoys interviewing gutsy renovators about the good, the bad, and the gritty of transforming a space.  
  • 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.
