Magazines & Publications

Ode to Domino

I received my very last issue of Domino Magazine a few days ago. I was so upset to hear earlier this month that the magazine would be publishing its last issue in March. It is my go-to for inspiration and I am beyond upset that it will no longer be published. What other magazine embraced our inner vintage, bohemian side?

C’est la vie… Good thing I’ve hung onto every copy published! I will have to hang on to my next favorite magazine, Real Simple (although my love for it has never been quite the same since my friend Amanda pointed out that the entire magazine is just a walking advertisement. Thanks Amanda!!) I feel like with the popularity of blogging, more and more readers are turning to the internet for design inspiration and less to the glossy pages of popular magazines. This is even evident in the bridal world, with the popularity of the Southern Weddings Blog and Style Me Pretty. Their content is equally relevent and gratification: instint! Why should we wait a whole two months, or worse yet a quarter, for a bridal magazine to be published?

What magazines are your favorites and provide inspiration in design, business, life? What are your favorite design blogs?

    It truly is so sad! I wasn’t a monthly subscriber but always managed to bring the latest issue home with me when I visited B&N for some inspiration. I’m definitely holding on to this last copy, it’s gold!

    Sorry kitten – sad but true that it is a big advertisement….some of the sections are good though!

    I loved Domino too – I got it for the first couple of years. I used to loved the “decorate this room too look like this outfit” articles – my absolute favorite. I always wanted to do that in our place.

    Kathleen I could see you loving Domino — your studio could be from one of their features!
