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.

hoar_no_bulb_01Any chic way to display a bar is going to get me excited, but especially when combined with a DIY idea to increase the light in a room?  I go ga-ga!

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!

Domino’s Icons of Style #2: Pink Walls

February 24, 2009
Today’s guest post is another installment in the series, Domino’s Icons of Style, by Beth of Style Redux.  Let us know what your personal opinion of each icon of style is in the comments: love it? hate it? used it in your own place?  We want to know what you think!

Domino brought pink rooms into the mainstream, not reserved for the nursery or girl’s bedroom. It showed us that pink is gorgeous in virtually any setting. These photos may inspire you to try it in a living room, a city apartment, a ceiling, a man’s apartment, an entryway, a dining room, a master bedroom, even a kitchen!

Pink is a great neutral and a very elegant choice.

I was inspired by Domino to use pink in my dressing room which is the last picture.  I even took a shopping bag from Thomas Pink and had the paint store match the color.
