If you were a huge fan of Domino magazine like me, you were disappointed when it folded in 2009, not too long after they published the great home style reference book, “Domino: The Book of Decorating.”
Well, then I have some good news for you…. Domino magazine is back! (sort of) Condo Nast released a special Spring/Summer issue of the publication. The format is different than the original monthly magazine, focusing instead on key decorating tips and featured homes gleaned from past issues. There is some fun new original content I enjoyed as well, especially the decorate your desk to suit your personality feature.
What’s nice is that as in the past, they include sources for all the products and the styling doesn’t feel like something I’ve already seen before in any publication. Which can be a challenge when everyone loves a good desk styling feature. (That backdrop was done with tinted chalkboard paint!)
You might be surprised that I’m also highlighting this article on modern floral arrangements, but I think this variety of home styling projects is what made Domino great. Formal floral arrangements leave me cold, so I was really taken with these rustic, free form floral arrangements spread out across the table. Plus I love Heath Ceramics’ vases, and the palette of colors they chose play well with all the elements on the table.
So just a quick sneak peak inside this special issue to inspire you to run out and find a copy for yourself. I found mine at Rainbow grocery store, of all places, a few weeks back, so keep your eyes open since I’m sure this will sell out quickly.
Have a great weekend everyone! I’ll be busy with home projects, new client meetings, and appreciating floral arrangements at Minneapolis Institute of Arts’ Art in Bloom event with some lovely ladies (after a yummy brunch at a new spot, of course).
