Still Missing Domino

I've quit wearing all black, but I am still missing Domino. So Haute did a post on Annelise Peterson and her home that was supposed to be in a future issue of DDD (Dearly Departed Domino). Check out the post here. It brings back good memories. It also reminded me of Sara Gilbane. A fabulous decorator who is probably the only person on earth sadder than I am that Domino was shut down.



According to Style Court, she was to be the April 2009 cover girl. Bummer. Big bummer. Don't you know she had already told all her friends. And then they told their friends and so on and so on....Big executives are mean.




I decided to share a few pictures of her bedroom...




And a few others from her website.


Maybe if you look at these pictures..


Then look at the ones on So Haute,

We can pretend Domino never left. Of course to make it seem real we would have to throw in some lucite, some antlers, a suzani spread and we must include Nick Olsen. Oh wait, is that a suzani on Sara's bed? Check.

  1. I never heard of Domino-but you obviously liked it! DO a post on wedding favors-they're very artsy, into museums, photography, srt history- and the bridal party is wearing the turquoisey blue you were talking about-any ideas???

  8. Her home is fantastic, I can't think of Domino without wanting to cry. There is no other publication like it out there.

    P.S. I wasn't able to comment yesterday, blogger was having another bad day. Love, love, love your blu opaline goblets.

    Well worth spending some time there (although I know your magazine dance card is full with all the mags you just inherited!).
