Month #1: These Are a Few of My Favorite Things

March 3, 2009

It’s been about a month since Domino made the sad announcement, and a month since we’ve been blogging here at We Love Domino, in our quest to keep domino alive in our hearts and minds beyond the lifespan Si Newhouse saw fit for the magazine.

What are some of your favorite things that you saw here on We Love Domino?  What do you want to see in the upcoming month(s)?  Here are a few of my personal favorite things from the past month:

Miles Redd's Front Door

Miles Redd's Front Door

I had forgotten about this door until Beth reminded me…I remember falling in love with its elegance the first time I saw it, especially the silver hardware (and the blue is beautiful, too) and the way the moulding curves around the handle in the middle of the door.  (It also made me wonder, how hard is it to open a door when the force is in the center of the door, as opposed to the opposite edge from the hinges–does anyone else wonder that??)


This dressing area can be made on an average person’s budget, but still is incredibly chic.  The “custom” shelving is actually just from Ikea, the stool recovered in fabric to coordinate.

Averill showed us great outdoor spaces that don’t require a green thumb, including this rooftop deck transformed.

glamIf there ever were a picture that epitomized yours truly, this would be it: glammed up family kitchen, kids underfoot (in a few years), gourmet appliances, a modern edge in the seating, luscious marble accents, the color blue dominating and colorful but limited accents, and a place for friends to gather (including your friend, Domino).  Yup, that’s me!


  1. The knob in the center of the door is quite common in Europe-you see them all over London and Paris. The knob does not turn-it is for pulling and pushing the door. On a very large heavy door it is a little awkward, but not otherwise. A small price to pay for such elegance!

  2. The fact you can’t click on your images to make them larger is a real turn off!! Other decor blogs have that option. Please amend.
