  1. I just came to the blog to find out from YOU - is it back for reals?? Monthly? In print?? I visited their site but I'm confused as to what the heck is happening.

  2. If I HAD to sleep, work and live in the same room 24/7, it would a pretty great space to do it in ( I'd probably still go mad though...)! I'm excited for the new Domino issue!

  3. soooo...I just read the Times article and, well, I'm not as excited as I thought.
    I understand they need to go in new directions as it's already a differnt world since they've been gone. BUT, this "new model" seems so familiar somehow. Oh right, BLOGS. Great blogs already give us original content and connect us immediately to products.

    Am I wrong?

    And am I wrong to still want those gorgeous, glossy pages in my hands once a month?

  5. Great article in the Times. I think the new Domino is great-it's got the content that we all want to see (though I agree with Grace Bonney that it could've been a little more substantial for $12), and they've basically created this new way of doing things, by being a magazine and an e-commerce site. I mean, what's more annoying than seeing an amazing product in some inspiration image on Pinterest, and not being able to have any clue where the product is from or how to get it? Happens a lot with clothing too. So Domino is making it easy as anything to just click and get the product you want. It's a little weird that they keep saying the magazine is just a vehicle for the e-commerce aspect, but hey, the first Domino folded because of the recession-so they're trying to make sure that this one is able to survive financially. I think the website is great, I like how you can read the features in three different ways (regular, just images, and "shop the story"). I'm excited. I think the approach is new and different, and we have lots of great Domino content to look forward to-and a print magazine! So happy for that. I'm just not a huge fan of the online mag format. I need to hold it in my hands.

  6. I agree with Grace Bonney, the new Domino is too light on content. Changing it from a magazine about inspirational and individual design to a blatant advertisement seems like such a sell out.

    Bloggers and design/shelter mags don't "tell me what to buy", they inspire me to develop my own style and my own vision.

  7. I like the combination of Michelle Adams (from Lonny) and Domino. The print issue is lovely - just started reading it. I just dislike the 11.99 price tag! Why so expensive? Cause not many ads? I hope it will get cheaper, otherwise I won't be able to spring for it. But I always liked on Lonny how you could click through straight to the product so I don't mind that the website is e-commerce. If anything, it seems like they are just being more transparent about a practice that already exists (like when a fashion magazine has a glowing review of a product that has an ad the next page). This is my first comment here. Love your blog and style. I'm sure we'll be seeing your work in the pages of Domino soon!

  11. I love the apartment! It looks absolutely fabulous. I live in a small condo apartment myself and know how hard it is to furnish it and decorate it :)

  12. It sort of looks like a child's room?
