Say it ain't so, Domino


Remember how I was just saying on Monday that everything I like gets discontinued? Well, here is another thing to add to that list: Domino Magazine. First Suede, then Budget Living, then Adorn. . . is everything I like just too good to last?

Maybe you're saying, "Tiffany, why can't you just read Architectural Digest or Interior Design like everyone else?"

I do read those magazines. Sometimes.

But sometimes they feel like the journalistic equivalent of the Merchandise Mart, an impenetrable fortress of design with a capital "D" with no room for whimsy and no regard for the way people who are not multimillionaires actually live. Domino was much more approachable. And just like Lucky, it had stickers in it that you could use to mark the items you like. Domino was the kind of magazine I had hoped to write an article for someday. Yes, I know there are plenty of other shelter magazines out there. But just like there will never be another Suede or Budget Living or Adorn, there will never be another Domino.

  1. Yikes! Are you kidding me?!
    I already lost my cute,soft, and simple 'Cottage Living' magazine.

    I love those 'Domino' tag stickers.
