Domino R.I.P

We all knew this was coming... but today it became official on Women's Wear Daily: http://www.wwd.com/media-news/domino-to-close-1953603?justin=1953603

As the economy slumps more and more design magazines are stopping production. (I know, captain obvious right?) Aesthetics aren't as important when people are losing jobs, homes, life savings, 401K's, retirement accounts and many many other precious items. It looks like it is going to take a long time for everything/everyone to rebound. I guess all the decor freaks out there, myself included, will just have to live off old magazine stashes (we all have them), ripped pictures for magazines/catalogues, inspiration boards, flickr searches, interior designer portfolios and of course, BLOGS.

I hope that Domino will still live on in blog form. It would be incredibly crushing to have it just vanish.

Did you see the NYT article? Pretty funny.
