My Life

No More Domino

*sniff, sob*

Domino and Blueprint Magazines

I suppose it’s fitting that I have every single issue, right beside every issue of Blueprint. All heavily bookmarked of course.

    Wha?!? Oh no! That’s my only subscription! This is just a scary replay of when Blueprint went away. Bummer!

    I’m sorry, I think this may be my fault… I just FINALLY got a subscription to Domino instead of just buying it at Borders. Last year it was Blueprint, and the year before that, Martha Stewart Kids.

    I am a magazine albatross.

    uggh. this has been all over the blogosphere the past couple of days and while i am so sad, i’m not surprised. along with the rest of you i was devastated by the demise of blueprint and cottage living (plus h&g and country home…etc.) what’s next?

    I’ve had every single issue of both domino and blueprint but I cut them up after tiring of having stacks and stacks of mags taking residence in my house. I’m going to miss all the color and digging through past issues whenever I’m looking for inspiration on certain projects. I can’t imagine finding another magazine I will love as much as those two.

    Total devastation! More so because it hits home when you work for a similar title – hopefully Real Living is safe as, er, houses but you’re all welcome to buy a suscription to up our numbers just in case! ha!

    I cried when I read this. I was an avid subscriber and collector of the decorating magazines – my hubby never understood. We lost our home to Hurricane Ike, and of course, there went my collection. We were living in the youth room at our church until we found this one bedroom apartment (which now seems enormous). I promised him no home magazines until we got “home”, though I have been hitting the websites and bookmarking ideas. Guess I better get him out of the house and start printing what I can. I am thrilled to have found your website!

    where did you get your information from? as a die-hard domino (and blueprint!) fan, i’m really hoping you’re wrong . . .

    i love your style, by the way!

    For those of us with subscriptions, I believe if you cancel in the next few weeks, you should be getting your last issue AND also a check with $$ for any remaining part of your subscription. That’s what I’m going to do. Just extended thru 2011!! Had a few free subscriptions from the Domino “Book of Decorating” that came with it.

    There goes my Deco! By the way, I also bookmark via “Kaboodle”, (love it!) and ShopStyle.

    Does anyone know where I can get back issues of Domino? I’ve only started collecting them!

    I’m totally bummed. I just threw a bunch out…thinking there will be more to replace them. Yikes, what publication will everyone now read? I’m at a loss to find another good one.

    Totally sad. When Cottage Living folded they sent me a letter telling me I’ll get Sunset as a replacement. Haven’t received my first copy yet, though. I have heard rumors that Lucky will replace Domino; I stopped my subscription to Lucky about 2 years ago because I thought all the models and the fashion felt the same every month.

    Domino is the best! This breaks my heart. I have all the issues staring with Spring/Summer 2005, and I go back to them all the time. Where there issues before that one?

    Nicole, you should write a blog post dedicated to magazines: how you store them in your own home, what you love to read and collect now, and what you used to read/collect in younger days. Your photography is always inspiring. Then us blog readers and lurkers (me!) can discuss via comments what we’re reading now, and going to read given all the closings. I need some new ideas, getting pretty tired of the same old same old.

    Hi Nicole!

    I’m a frequent peruser of your blog – it’s great! I admire your taste, your perserverance (redoing a home is TEDIOUS, albeit fun), and your business savvy!

    I live in DC and actually came across a little feature on your Periodic Table of Sentiments cards in the Washington Express today. I’m not sure if you knew of this and I wanted to let you know! I can scan it and send it to you – I looked for an email address but couldn’t find one. They’re looking very cute and witty!

    I love your design ideas. I too live in a bungalow (1927) and have been pouring quite a bit of time, money, and love into fixing it up. Your site has provided much inspiration. I just tagged you on my site

    i feel the same, and will now look more and more to blogs for my inspiration.
    first heartbreak, for me, was the closing of budget living. then blueprint. then cottage living. now this!
    i have to question what it is about the demographic buying these magazines that makes them fold- are we generally lower wealth and its harder to attract advertisers? i know the industry is having a hard time generally but it seems like every, litterally every, magazine i like ends up folding. (it probably didnt help that i read budget living for free at the library…)

    I can’t believe this! Domino’s website is actually how I indirectly found your blog … I don’t remember how, but through looking through their links, and those links’ links … I discovered you and your blog! What a bummer…

    I’ve been reading your blog for about a year and a half and I think this is the first time I’ve commented. I absolutely love everything that you do. Your house is amazing and really inspires me … for when I eventually will have a house of my own someday. Just wanted to let you know that I think you’re pretty awesome!

    So sad about Domino, mine too are heavily bookmarked. Country Home will go after March, I believe, and Mary Engelbreit too, I can’t keep up with them all!

    I have to say… I have read many blogs, but yours is by far the coolest looking blog I have seen. What an awesome job on the design. My favorite is the “so so” photo layout, very sharp!

    Have a great week!
