A Salute to Domino Magazine

Yes, I am afraid that it is true. Domino Magazine’s last issue is on the stands right now (March, 2009) and we design nerds are all shedding big tears.

Domino has been such an inspirational magazine to me and my hope is that it will come back in one shape or another. As a salute to the magazine and the talented staff (and all of the great designers that they have featured), I have put some of my favorite rooms in this gallery for you viewers to enjoy.

ADIEU until we’ll meet again!

Belgian Style

I really admire how the talented interior designer Kay Douglass puts rooms together. And I particularly enjoy her interpretation of Belgian style. (A mix between the simple, quiet Swedish look and the more daring, elegant French style). It’s just a lovely combination. These images from House Beautiful have been posted to the left and the right for quite some time – but they never tire me! 

I love the old looking mirrors with the thick candles – almost a sacred area – bringing warmth and coziness to the dining room.

The red/rust color has always been a favorite accent color in my homes. It blends so well with neutrals.

What a lovely bedroom. Soothing, fresh, crisp, warm, simple and unexpected. Me like! (But personally I would have added some really contemporary bed lights – just to mix it up a little bit).

Lovely Bedroom

I am obsessing with bedrooms right now – gearing up to (at some point) remake a couple in my own home. This image is from Domino Magazine . I love the colors – especially the gray headboards. So fresh, so relaxing. And how fun with the fabric in the ceiling!  The table “Shine” from Shop Shine Home is also smashing. I could so move our guests in to this room!

Beautiful Rooms

House Beautiful never used to be my favorite design magazine to read but over the last 9 months or so I feel it has gone from stodgy to much more eclectic, incorporating more fun coverage of contemporary design. I now read the magazine from cover to cover and always find some pages that I rip out and save.

Here are some pages with recent “dog ears” from House Beautiful:

What a beautiful and comfy breakfast nook! The designer behind it is the talented J Randall Powers. I love the stone walls, the natural light, the stone floors, and the lantern. And the antique table and… I love it all!

Christina Rottman is another great designer. I love her guest room. I can see myself creating a similar haven for my guests. How chic with sisal on the wall. Yep, me like!

Lovely Swedish Kitchen

Leave it to the Swedes to create the coolest, hippest and most functional kitchens.  They are always ahead of the game, I feel.
