Lydia Geisel head shot

Lydia is from the Philadelphia area and recently graduated from Wake Forest University. Her art history studies and her fascination with vintage furnishings introduced her to the world of design and interiors. Likes include, but are not limited to: Tracee Ellis Ross, everything bagels, Memoirs of a Geisha, antiquing, plaid jackets, Capri Blue candles, and copper accents. She also enjoys covering before and after home transformations—like this industrial farmhouse makeover—as well as places and spaces where the interiors are as inspiring as the people who work and live there.
