Decorating by the Book

I borrowed this book from my friend Bille and I’ve been busy the past few days following the steps in the book to finish decorating the apartment. {By “finish” I mean I want rugs chosen, things painted, art hung, and throw pillows committed to.} I’ve been spending an obscene amount of time on Craigslist the last few days too.

In case anyone was wondering, I still miss Domino Magazine.

    I checked this book out from the library and have spent much of the week pouring over it, wondering what I'll do in our new Boston apartment.

    I've been pouring over Craigslist lately too! I think it's because it's yard sale season and I keep thinking what could be.

    I have to get my hands on that book. My old Domino issues are getting too worn!

    I MISS DOMINO!!!! Nothing compares. My mom bought me the book for my birthday, last year. Can't tell you how many times I've oogled at it and used it!

    Isn't that book beautiful? I just like how it looks on my coffee table. I'd like to design my living room around that cover! Have fun finishing!

    I'm still looking for an online petition: BRING BACK MY DOMINO!!

    (I chopped up/recycled all my issues- I should have saved them all… sniff)

    I subscribed to Domino and received just one issue before the magazine went under. Devastating 🙁

    Me, too. We are slowly but surely renovating our house and I am constantly consulting the book, making inspiration boards, repurposing, etc. I've dubbed it my Domino The Book of Decorating Design Challenge and, I have to say, it's been quite helpful! Just wish I had a spare money tree to help me finish more quickly.

    GL with yours:)

    I miss Domino too! Hope their book helps you to make some of those final decorating decisions. It's hard when there are so many choices.

    i lucked out and the last time a Domino Mag rep came to our office she gave me a copy of the book. but it does make me a little sad to see it and know there are no more magazines coming…
