In a strange coincidence- the very day that I read this post I recieved an email from the editor of Domino about giving the "gift of Domino" this holiday season. I replied to the email and voiced a concern about the article from the Observer. Here is the response I received from Deborah Needleman, Editor of Domino magazine:

"Let me assure you that story about domino closing in the Observer is unfounded rumor. Domino is alive and well, and it's full steam ahead around here. I am glad you wrote to inquire, though...."

My favorite day of each month is the day I fish the newest issue of Domino out of the mailbox. It is the only mag I subscribe to... I will be so sad if the day comes when that stops.

hider, but a disorganized one for sure. Things pile up, then I stash them, forget where I have stashed them... and then have to pull everything apart when trying to figure out what drawer holds a certain pile that may or may not have a specific bill/letter/ dmv registration renewal stashed somewhere in the middle of it. :-(

I think this is very clever and creative.... dare I say it? Way to "think outside of the box"

I just had the same thing happen to me... I came across about 8 rolls of film that I had NO idea what/where/who or why..... I took 2 rolls in at a time, so the expense was limited. It was also so fun to see the picutures that came out, it was like unwrapping a present... great anticipation of what I might see and huge laughs as some of the pics were at LEAST 10 years old!

Go get them processed, but if cost is a factor just do one or two at a time.

Don't worry Matt.... you will still want to snuggle under a blanket this winter. CA nights can get chilly!

Barf! That is EXACTLY what I said when I saw Kelly's spread in my new issue of Domino..... it looks like the 80s just hurled all over the pages of my favorite magazine. Dare I say Kelly's room look as bad as her clothing choices on Top Design?

Yes, and that picture just made it even stronger! Just finished organizing the linen closet... working my way up to the garage and the BF's office..... eeek!

thrill- I have the same solution....

My youngest cat is a "kneader" with claws...and I have a beautiful Donna Karen blanket in a rich chocolatey brown color and a satin finish that I was terrified that she would ruin. But, as luck has it, she is OBSESSED with a small throw blanket that I keep folded on the end of the bed. It is a soft, fluffy faux fur one that she goes crazy over... and it only cost me a tenth of the other. So maybe try keeping a blanket on hand that she CAN knead and partially cover your west elm one to preserve it.

Wow I can't even get the BF to go to the grocery store with me.... I would NEVER try and coerce him into an Ikea trip. I learned my lesson going with a girlfriend who had a small child a few times.... I spent the entire trip watching her toddler, and trying to keep him from jamming the shoppping cart into displays and other shoppers.

Now I go on my own, as soon as they open on Saturday mornings.... I bring my patience and my cup of coffee, and dont purchase anythign I cant lift into my car myself. It's great.

That first picture really grabbed my attention... what a gloriously girlie room. Alas, happy couple-dom means constantly compromising my design esthetic to make Mr Man happy and comfortable at home.

How many posts are we going to see about the book-decor inside Anthropologie? It's really neat, but we have covered this already.

Oh my, that Alexandria chandelier had me at hello. Too bad I am on a Target sale-rack budget.

I also had to break up with two dogs when I left an ex.... but was richly rewarded a year or two after when they had a litter and my ex called and asked if I wanted first pick! I say that dog is my "granddog", since he was my "babies' baby".
