the last issue of domino arrived, and maison21 flipped though it with a heavy heart. sad because it's gone forever, and also sad because the most of the last issue was "meh"- nothing special, and we really wanted our beloved domino to go out with bang, not a whimper.
at least the last issue gave m21 one seared into his design memory bank moment: nina campbell's living room- so chic with it's mixture of glitzy 80's and antiques. love.
and that mantle? OMFG! (as the kids say)- old maison's heart actually stopped for a second. sheer perfection- all shiny brass, mirrored chrome(?) and glossy black (love the lacquered geese too). and the pièce de résistance? crystal logs! so damned chic (and useless), m21 just can't stand it!
thanks domino, for giving us one last parting image to savor, and in an odd way, that image will help us get over your loss... you see, m21 will be far too busy to mourn domino's passing, as he now has a new project to occupy his time: we've bought plywood and are going to just bolt it over the disgusting hole in our living room wall we used to call a fireplace- if we can't have nina's, we'd prefer not to have one at all...
bye, domino- i'll miss you.
