Say It Ain't So, Domino

So I heard from a friend a couple weeks ago that Domino Magazine was shutting down... and while I was hopeful upon seeing "subscribe to domino for $10/year..." in my issue that arrived yesterday, upon visiting the website, I see that it is true - March 2009 is their last issue.

And the March issue is such a delight... the pink & red cover features the oh-so-stylish 51 year old Ines de la Fressange.  Inside, four of her amazing living spaces (and her insider tips on Paris!) are featured.

This magazine is not just about shopping and decor ads... though I was interested to read "decorating from your travels" (p. 56), I was equally interested in the recipes in "shop once, eat for a week" (p. 47).  Now, I try to do this anyway, but my menus don't usually include prosciutto & goat cheese flatbread and lemon-chicken kebabs.  Thanks, Domino, I am going to try this!  "beauty fix" (p. 32) just happens to feature one of my current fav perfumes (Prada Infusion d'Iris) and has talked me into trying a new one (Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Herba Fresca).  There is also a great tip on page 118 about adding a smidge of Starbuck's bottled Frappuccino to your home-brewed morning coffee.  Going to try it.

Domino, I really wish you would stick around.  I've really enjoyed your features and photos.  I even bought your book.  Plus, I still have about 9 months left on my subscription.
