Managing Editor, Home & Shopping

Samantha Weiss Hills is the Managing Editor of Home and Shopping for Domino. She edits and writes home tours, shopping guides, and features, and she’s the friend that everyone texts for glassware, sofa, and sheet recommendations. She lives in Brooklyn with her husband Alex and their beagle-corgi Elsa.


  • Expertise includes writing stories on homes that lean a little weird, testing lots of bed linens and kitchen gear, and finding the perfect gift for the food-obsessed 
  • Interests include diving deep on the wine world, cooking and hosting elaborate dinner parties, regular museum visits, and running
  • Previous staff experience includes Hearst Magazines, Curbed, and Food52; in a former life, she worked in the arts. 


Weiss Hills started her career in the art world at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and has been writing about home, design, and food for more than a decade. She has helmed communications and partnerships for Food Book Fair, a festival of food writing, and was the first Partnerships Editor at Food52. Before landing at Domino, she was a Senior Editor of Home and Design for HearstMade at Hearst Magazines and Contributing Editor for Interiors at Curbed, where she authored the weekly House Calls column.

Her writing has also appeared in Saveur, Architectural Digest, House Beautiful, Eater, Wine Enthusiast, The Week, and more. Weiss Hills has been an Adjunct Instructor at The Media School at Indiana University, served as a sommelier at King Dough in Indianapolis, and has recipe tested for Dominique Ansel Bakery.
