What a mistake! It was such an inspired magazine and In this scary market we need a how to do it yourself decorating magazine especially one that was driven by such talented editors and decorators. It had a cool, realitic look that was always comfortable and never dowdy. So you can't afford a designer or the D&D, with Domino, you could take a designer's idea and still make your home fabulous! Huge mistake -- did I say that already?
