English Muse: Domino

Sunday, January 11, 2009


This dreadful recession has taken a toll on everyone, especially print media. My favorite fashion magazines are almost as skinny now as the models they feature. With all the troubles at Condé Nast and worries about more magazine closures, I wanted to highlight one of the jewels of my mailbox: Domino. The February issue (featuring the home of Zooey Deschanel) arrived yesterday. I think I've saved every edition of the decor magazine since it started publication three years ago (and I know some of my girlfriend bloggers have done the same.) It's become a cult favorite with the trendy set. Above are some of my picks from the "Best of Domino" slideshow on the magazine's website.

(PS: The pug painting is by Jessie Mott, via!)

UPDATE JANUARY 29:  The word is out. Domino is closing. March will be the last issue. Sigh.

Who wouldn't want to inhabit any of these lovely spaces, though the bedroom is wonderfully evocative.

i didn't know they were having problem... that makes my heart sad. i hope all gets better. i love love love domino and lucky. magazines i will always keep. :) i moved to hawaii a year ago and had to throw away almost three years of domino issues. it was one of the hardest things for me to get rid of. now i tear out what i like and make binders. it's not the same but i can't see myself throwing years of subscriptions again if i move.

several years ago the artist that painted this adorable pug, Jessie Mott, painted my beloved 3lb teacup poodle Coconut, it is one of my most treasured things.
