Domino Magazine is no more
Out of all the magazines I’d heave onto the table the rare times I’d find myself in Barnes and Noble, the first magazine I could hardly wait to open was Domino magazine. Condé Nast has sounded the death knell for my favorite magazine of all time. I can hardly believe it. It was the only magazine that delighted me month after month.
Who knew that it would ever fold? Well, I sort of knew a couple of weeks ago.
You see, a lovely editor from Domino contacted me and made me a candidate (their may have been four other people in the running) for their their last page: “Ten things that make me Happy”. If you read Domino, you’ll know what I’m talking about. I was thrilled, beyond thrilled! Just the fact that Domino knows who I am and that they know my work still thrills me, even under this sad event. I gathered my favorite ten things and presented my list to the editor in my special way. She loved my choices and presentation (my own photos) and told me that I would know if I were chosen for the back page at the end of December. Well, I did what I did, handed in my choices and then went to Paris at the end of December to celebrate life and love.
Alas, I was not chosen. Was I disappointed? Honestly, I was sad for thirty seconds and then thought of the projects I have lined up for me in Paris and a smile came back to my lips. Oh! I have something up my sleeve folks and I hope that you’ll love it!
To the lovely editor who rooted for me at Domino as well as every other member of the Domino Magazine team, I would like to thank you all for the inspiration, the vibrancy and the accessibility that you brought back to interior design. Thank you for believing in my work. I wish you all the best in your future projects.
You will be missed but not forgotten.
