A Domino Favorite: Small Space Color

Domino: Small Space Color

I just want to say that I'm completely in love with this hot pink kitchen...


Although this green dining room is nice too...

Domino: color

I'm continuing my new Sunday tradition of posting old Domino articles. I hope you like this one. It appeared in the April 2006 issue. Domino says: "Brighter rooms, happier you." Do you think that's true? Maybe I have too many white walls in the house!

(Here's the link to my previous Sunday Domino posts. And click the photos above to view them large on my Flickr page.)

A couple other things:

Congratulations Liss at Daydream Lily for being named a "Blog of Note"! Men from all over the world have been proposing to Liss in the wake of the honor. She has wisely started screening her messages.

And thank you Veronique at Here in Malibu for telling me about TweetDeck. Although I'm now living on Twitter, I have a long way to go before I catch up with Ashton Kutcher! (Please follow me before #moonfruit crashes Twitter.)

Have a great Monday everyone!

Love that you are keeping the memory of Domino alive! What a loss to the design community that was.

Oh and I agree, the hot pink kitchen is pretty awesome :)

I really love the blue wall with the chest and the mirror - it's very charming. White walls can be so boring!

Poor Liss...all those proposals. I shouldn't be surprised, but I am. Maybe I still have enough innocence.

thank you Miss Tina :-)

PS. Rashid from Pakistan would like my hand in marriage...HAHAAHA I'm most definitely screening my emails ! Least till things get back to normal.

PSS. I love colour in a home, but i'm with you on white walls. Id rather add colour through bold prints and textiles.

You're right, that kitchen is FAB!
As for bright colours, yeah sometimes they're nice, but a house/apartment definitely needs lighter airy colours for the wind-down hours! Plus those lighter rooms are far more versatile!

The pink is divine- because it didn't try too hard- it went straight to work on a simple useable kitchen-in a "showhouse-do not touch" kitchen- I would say garish. It is so right to see paint work and brights mix with the Right elements-modern and rustic. The stylist always knows. Great glimpse at color mileage. LittleAugury

Really like the dining room. And I have also heard that bright walls create a "happier you". Maybe I need to do that in my new little place. All the walls are white. DEPRESSING! :)

Thanks for sharing.

The dining room green is serene and sensous. All the rooms are striking.

it's funny, as i get a little older, i seem to be daring myself to try more with color. these rooms are inspiring and make you think hmmmm....time to run off and grab handfuls of paint swatches and consider the possibilities. :)

Ahhh, this is scrumptious. I have a color-saturated apartment because I love color, but then crave the serenity of white. I think I need two apartments to play with...

Love the pink kitchen, too, although I don't think I could sqeeze this project past my husband. He's more of the earth tones kind of guy. Would love to have different color walls in every room, but that would require time, and who has time? If anyone has time can I borow some? :)
Btw, I love your Domino Sundays, don't stop! xoxo

I have this funny feeling Domino might be back... Has that ever happened in the history of magazine publishing?
