domino favorites - Nov. 08

I love
domino! It is my favorite American interior design magazine. Each issue is full of fabulous style ideas. This month's issue was no exception, as you can see. Many rooms shown featured dark walls, which is a very dramatic look. I love the look of mirrors juxtaposed with dark walls, as well as the glass and metal accents. They really sparkle against a deep background. Another great design choice featured this month was a black and white tablescape, which I think would be wonderful for any party. I also loved the spread on a hotel/ home in Spain (a country I dream of visiting!), featuring bright airy rooms that would make any guest feel at home, such as a room with an antique desk in front of a large window.


home office chic

These home office spaces are elegant, inspired, and personal--so very un-office-like. Bravo!


belted layers - DVF

I love the look of a nipped-in waistline from wearing a skinny belt with a dress, especially layered with a vest, cardigan, or coat. Diane von Furstenberg shows us how it's done (above) for Fall 08.
