domino’s second Instagram contest, launched in October, garnering over 1,500 amazing submissions. The winner—Lynn K. Leonidas, a design project manager at interiors firm Susan Collins Weir—has crafted a home in San Francisco’s Castro District that embodies the domino aesthetic: chic, inspired, and accessible. It’s filled with playful prints, modern photography, and some laid-back Northern California vibes. “My home is ‘so domino,’” Leonidas says, “because it’s layered with old and new and filled with personal pieces made by local artisans.”
Leonidas shares her 1,000-square-foot apartment with her husband, Andrew, who runs Beat Electric, a soul-reissue record label. “We needed a beautiful, functional space to showcase our collections,” Leonidas says. “We made it all work with carefully scaled furniture and a sound floor plan.” She explains: “Without forgoing formal furniture, I’ve been able to make our home fit our lifestyle.”

“It feels like a cocoon,” Leonidas says of the couple’s petite bedroom.
