Monday Morning Inspiration – Hooray for Domino!

Ahhh, it feels good to be connected to the world again (Although, I’ll admit, a little time away, was nice…).  My internet connection is fixed and I’m feeling like a part of the world again – don’t know if that’s actually kind of sad.  Oh well.


Back to bringing you my favorite in design inspiration to start the week off right.  And this week’s inspiration comes as a twofer.  

FIRST, the incredible and wonderful relaunch of Domino Magazine!  

The mag has come back to life in even better form than it’s former glory.  There will be four seasonal issues (the first issue hits newsstands tomorrow!), filled with amazing design inspiration, tips, products, and more – which makes it totally worth the $12/issue price tag in my opinion.  

But if the cost seems a little steep for you, you can check out what I’m obsessed with loving the most right now – their interactive website.  You can choose to read, look at pictures, or SHOP (my personal fav) the featured story.  

Yes, shop it!  With links to purchase the exact items (or extremely similar) featured in the interior pics.  How genius is that!?

Plus you can tap into their archives for inspiration, tips, and all sorts of other goodies.  

If you haven’t had a chance to take a look, do it now!  

SECOND, I suppose it’s only fitting that my actual inspiration come from Domino’s featured story showcasing Manhattan restauranteur, Ali Cayne’s West Village townhouse.  

All I can say is that I love this space.  

I want to live there.  

It’s light and airy (you had me at crisp white paired with brass accents), classic and modern without being stale, and she does a wonderful job of bringing out the vintage charm of the original space.   

I can’t get enough of the plush hand woven textiles (like the Beni Ourain-style rugs), textured wood floors, and interesting accents – which make it beautifully personalized.  The space is polished but livable.  Completely cohesive.  (all images via Domino, interior design by Ali Cayne)



Lusting after this study…  



…and office space!












What about you? 

Do you love the cohesiveness of this space?

  1. I heard the rumor about Domino coming back but just couldn’t believe it could be true. I cared about that mag more than I’d like to admit. So excited it’s coming back! Off to fill out an annual subscription!

    • We are totally of the same mind! I didn’t want to admit how giddy I was to hear about it. Now I don’t feel so guilty. Haha!
