Wallpapers of Yellow Chinoisere

Posted by Betsy On October 14, 2008

Apologies, dear readers, many many apologies because I find myself falling victim to blogging tendency that I find most irritating in other design bogs - namely, too much writing and not enough pretty pictures! Mortification and sorrow abound. In order to atone for my sins, I thought I would do a montage of yellow chinoisere wallpaper, which is an option I am considering for the dream house dining room... Juicy Couture's Pamela Skaist-Levy's house, featured in Bazaar, inspired the thinking. I just LOVE everything about this room...

In Honor of the Girls

Posted by Betsy On October 15, 2008

Those who know me well know that I need absolutely no excuse to expound on the color pink (you'll note this blog's title). But since it is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I thought I would follow Mrs. Blandings' fabulous lead and do my bit to raise awareness by blogging on pink for the day. Instead of going the Dorothy Draper route, and don't get me wrong , I ADORE Ms. Draper, I thought I would reflect on my most favorite use of pink EVER, my magical wedding reception:


Dreaming of a Creative Cottage

Posted by Betsy On October 1, 2008

So one of the "must-haves" for our dream house, which we may have found ... *IF* we can convince the sellers to knock $500,000 off the listing price. Minor hiccup. Our dream house must have a designated space for me to create. Ideally, this would be a cottage by the sea where I could write, craft and spraypaint old furniture to my heart's content. However, unless we win the lotto, which is obviously totally possible, it will most likely be a room in our house where I can write, craft and spraypaint old furniture to my heart's content.

Thoughts on Kelly

Posted by Author On September 18, 2008

Being an uber-prep by birth, somewhat by choice but mainly by basic resignation to the fates, I've been thrilled by the recent resurgence of preppy chic. From J.Crew to Jonathan Adler, the blue blazer and pearls are definitely back in full effect. I am particularly pleased by the kelly green palettes that have been popping up everywhere. For instance this delicious bedroom from Mr. Adler:

Extraordinary Outpourings...

Posted by Betsy On 4:52 PM
Hi everyone,

I'm back from vacation and am overwhelmed by the outpouring of love for Domino that I have returned to...my inbox overfloweth. (I was also extremely pleased to see that our collective outcry has reached Page Six of the NY Post.)

Some exciting things are afoot! I'll tell you more about that later, but in the meantime, I want to share with you some of the amazing sentiments posted by the Domino fans who have signed our petition to SAVE DOMINO!

antiqufetish writes..." I love domino because it's different from any other decor magazine I've ever read. It is fresh with great articles and photography and I've been inspired by it.There are so many other publications that I could live without before closing domino down and I would pay more per issue to keep it going."

amy laments..."Its the only thing out there like it!! I am so incredibly sad that they will be no more!!! Good luck with this endeavor! I know sooo many that truly love and will miss this magazine!!! It was one of a kind and became my bible!"

adriene shares..."I am in Advertising and still to this day wish I would have majored in Interior Design. I love to play with styles and color in my own living space...Domino helped me satisfy my craving for design when I don't have the money to do anything with my own apartment. Plus Domino gives you a bird's eye view into the most unique homes and it a great publication for ideas."

These are just the beginning of the *A* people - I will share more later!
