Domino Magazine Closes

domino closes

I honestly don't know what to say. But the news is true. I can't believe it. I worked at House & Garden that closed in November 2007 and now domino too. Am I cursed? I'm totally sad and wondering what will happen to all my favorite magazines? Join the discussion over at design*sponge.


p.s. what do I do now, paint?

  4. It's so so sad. And kind of scary, to be honest. I knew the ad sales were grim - I just had no idea it was this bad. It's bloggers like you that will keep going what domino leaves behind. I really think.

  5. I can't believe it either. Would love to get your feedback on the future of print. I think you would have great insight with your experience -

  7. Miss Elliott: aside from the fact that you are an incredible resource for design tidbits and myriad unique sources (look at your posts on plaid blankets!) you are also renovating a darling house from the ground up. Make that more of a focus, documenting the process a bit more, and add some sponsors. You are very well-poised to spin this into something fabulous, more of a site than a blog.
    Do not despair! It's terrible news, and I feel badly for you and all of the other talent behind the magazine, but I have no doubt you'll pull through.

  8. By the way, I hope I'm not overstepping my bounds in saying that. Has just occurred to me that I might have been a bit bossy-sounding (not unusual).
    Yours is one of my most favoritest blogs -- just thinking it could also be outrageously fabulous while paying for your renovations.

  13. Oh my goodness this means you lose your job - I'm so sorry.

    Hang in there - silver lining and all that.

  14. I am really sorry to hear about Domino! I only just started subscribing to it several months ago after finding you. I can only imagine how disappointed you must be and it's got to be extremely tough on all of your friends at the magazine as well. It's such a great magazine. This economy is really hurting everyone. :(

  15. I echo the lament above about losing Blueprint and Domino. Ugh. I was also a fan of Cottage Living which is also defunct. Sorry you lost your job because of the downturn.

    I enjoy your blog a lot and keep us posted on how a creative person survives this downturn. Just got my John Robshaw catalog yesterday, thanks to a recommendation from you.
