Domino Magazine used to be so fresh, so new, so fun. But now...
1- the issue I just received features yet another long-legged vixen with tanned skin, smooth long hair, hip wardrobe, minimalist waists, and a trendy decorator. Here is the deal, though: if I’m ever in the mood to feel lousy about my wrinkles and my ever-expanding derriere, I read Elle, or Vogue, thank you very much. I like decoration magazines precisely because they are guaranteed safe and nymphet-free.
2- haven’t we seen this cover before? I can’t tell your covers apart.
3- there is nothing in this issue I haven’t been introduced to months ago via Decor8.
4- and the layout? Looks like the same stuff thrown together in a very formulaic way. Bo-ring.
Must I really give up on you, D? Are you listening?
These photographs were borrowed from a magazine I can't get at home but would love to: the Danish Bolig.
Maybe the blogs I have been reading, but my attraction to color is, if not fading, at least substantially toned down by my new passion for white. This Bolig interior just might be the perfect combination of white and color, of modern and vintage, of clean lines and earthy textures. I think it’s in the air, wanting less, craving simplification, a low-tech life with only the things I need.
And speaking of things I don’t need; I don’t know about you, but when I dream of decorating my house, I can’t remember a time I considered including a nymphet. My husband and I might disagree on this, but I have veto power.
