decorating 101

If you are as sad as I am about the demise of the oh-so-lovely domino magazine earlier this year, you really need to pick up the domino book of decorating and browse through it. This book is fantastic...all the decor advice you could think of for designing a home that fits your style all wrapped up in fabulously beautiful book. All it needs is a ribbon.

Now that you have rushed out to the nearest bookstore to pick up your own beloved copy, turn to page 78 and you will find the sofa that I have been drooling over forever. I absolutely love this sofa from the domino book (better photo on page 78) and have been drooling over it for awhile now. It can also be seen here in Domino Editor, Deborah Needleman's Tribeca loft.

Everything about this room tickles my fancy...the gorgeously plush sofa with tufted seat, the greyish-taupe accent chairs, the jute rugs, the acrylic mod coffee table, the pile of logs next to the fireplace, the white garden stool used as a side table....the list goes on. There is something about this room that intrigues me. I love the neutral palette and she does such a lovely job of making it fun and inviting. I want to curl up on that sofa with one of her coffee table books. I also love how it doesn't really match but it works for some reason. Oh why can't I have skill like this.... maybe I need to study the domino book of decorating for some much needed advice!
