DUDE! Call me pedestrian, but Domino was my all-time favorite decorating magazine. And please note that if you do call me pedestrian, I'll shove my "Keep Calm and Carry On" poster, my taxidermied deer head and my Saarinen table at you. All of it. At you.

Contact me with the Design Boner air horn.

So sad that domino magazine is gone. All the good magazines seem to be disappearing. I do love readymade which is sort of a decorating magazine and I have collected a few vintage decorating books from the 60's and 70's that are fun.

Domino was my favorite decorating magazine too! I've had this book on my wish list for my birthday and Christmas, and haven't gotten it yet! I'd LOVE to win!

Oh, how I miss Domino. I still refer to my old copies for ideas.

Now, I pick up Elle Decor and ReadyMade for my design fix, mostly ReadyMade for DIY projects.

RIP Domino, Blueprint and Cottage Living. All my faves, all down the drain.

Oh, how lovely. I miss Domino.

I love Vicente Wolf's "Crossing Boundaries: A Global Vision of Design", which features photographs of his travels all over the world and how they inspire his work.

I'm keeping every copy! I still do not have the book....so I am crossing my fingers here! Others that I love: Elle Decor and House Beautiful.....I may as well just say all of them. Books: anything by Diane Dorrans Saeks just to start.

Amy said...

I would love this book - I so miss Domino! My fave decorating book is Bazaar Style - so lovely! I heart Readymade too!

Jaydubs said...

I enjoy(ed) the usual suspects: Domino, Blueprint, Readymade, but I think I might most miss Budget Living.

Marian said...

Martha Stewart even though I suppose she's not EXACTLY a decorating mag.

I love Architectural Digest, it takes me hours to get through an edition, it's always a great read.

I miss domino so much! Unlike many other magazines, it was actually HELPFUL! Heaven forbid you see something in another publication and want to know where to buy it....you could never find out! Chances are if you did find out it would be prohibitively expensive. Domino told you up front what things were and what they cost. It was more of a helpful buyers manual of fabulous things in that way! While I LOVE the magazines left (elle decor, house beautiful, architectural digest, etc.) Domino was one of a kind and really filled a niche -a niche that is now a void! ARGH
If I win I can be contacted through my blog :-) Good luck to me! hehe

Hmmmm very hard to pick an all-time favorite, but I recently read COLIN AND JUSTIN'S HOME HEIST STYLE GUIDE which is a really fun decorating resource. I'd love to be entered to win the Domino book though since I really miss the magazines!

I love Dwell for design/architecture ideas, Wallpaper for the euro expensive shit, Readymade for the budget DIY projects, and I loved Blueprint because it was all-around fun. I still refer back to a salmon recipe I tore out of that magazine.

And I really like Not Martha's blog for crafty DIY projects. And Design Boner of course for the erotic decorating shit.

If (when) I win I think the good news should come via TWEET. But tweet it to @DuchessDeuce and she can pass along the good news to me.

Renee G said...

About the only thing I still read is Country Living and Sunset for design ideas.

Danny loves Dwell so I'm entering for him...I guess I like Dwell too so that counts.

Libby Pearson said...

Martha Stewart Living is my favorite design magazine--she makes the most unexpected things look WASPy.

I loved all of the magazines that have recently gone out of business, Domino, Blueprint, Cottage Living.

Alison said...

One of my favorites is Readymade, cause it's super creative and fun, if that can count as a design magazine/book. I also love the Todd Oldham book, Handmade modern. I guess I like the stuff that shows you how to make your own stuff the most.
