Domino is a magazine that offers great eye candy and ideas for the interior design enthusiast. The only downfall is that typically the items and ideas that are featured are not in a price range that works for the average person. Many featured products are on the higher end of the spectrum. It often feels like the writers are writing to those hip, upper class New York types. That being said, it does provide great ideas to use as a jumping off point. Martha Stewart, it's not, but their ideas are really fresh.
Domino is my favorite magazine. I am an interior design student, and this magazine has been a great resource for my projects. The photo spreads are great, and they provide spreads of many different design styles. I love the sections on new trends and do-it-yourself ideas. The only con I can think of is that the new issues don't come out soon enough!
fab, hip home decor magazine
In addition to the superb content of the magazine (w.r.t. content and viewing), a bonus feature is the inclusion of a handy page of stickers to tag memorable items viewed in that particular issue or to tag/categorize articles to refer for future home decor projects. This is a particularly clever, unique, and very handy feature of this mag!

good all around interior design for folks on a budget
**Domino** is a good magazine for first time decorators and buyers, young people with not too much background in interior purchases. The choices are trendy, reasonable and in good taste. The many sections cover most of the things people need to know about fixing up a first home or apartment, plus lots of product photos and small descriptions with price, like a catalog. I use the magazuine for design ideas and trend reports as I am a jewelry designer and I find that they have good taste and address many issues that affect many people, especially lower-income or middle class first time decorators.
Fun, fresh ideas with great decorating sources
I subscribe to 22 magazines and this is one of my top 5 picks for being loaded with great, fun, fresh home and fashion ideas including lots of sources to fit a multitude of budgets and jam-packed with articles and not alot of advertising compared to many other same category type magazines.
Develop your personal sense of style in home decor
I have subscribed to Domino since the very first issue and recommend it highly. It is intended to be a shopping magazine along the lines of Lucky, but specifically for the home. As a young person who is decorating my home one piece at a time (as my budget allows), I value the magazine most for helping me to develop my own sense of style. Many home magazines are too "country" or "traditional" on the one hand, too "modern" on the other for my taste. Domino showcases a refreshing mix of styles, and, in my opinion, the magazine is particularly suited for younger decorators (people in their 20's to 40's) in that way. Many of the items featured are far outside my budget, but there are plenty that are affordable (for example, Thomas O'Brien's line at Target and items from Ikea have appeared in the magazine). And even the priciest items can provide inspiration. Best of all, unlike many home decor magazines, it is easy to find out where to buy all the items featured, or very similar ones. Whenever possible, websites are listed so that readers can browze online or order directly from the website. The magazine for the website itself (www.dominomag.com - free access for everyone!) is a great resource: my favorite features are the galleries of readers' photos (great for ideas!), lists of Domino's favorite online home decor blogs and stores, and Nick Olsen's column "The Deal Hunter," which tells readers how to get expensive looks for less. In addition to home decor, Domino also includes some fashion, entertaining, gardening, and cooking tips, but the focus is primarily on home decor.
Inviting and Inspiring Ideas for the Home
I really enjoy immersing myself in all things related to interior decorating. I love decorating shows, Home and Garden catalogs, design magazines, and books on art and architecture. No, I am not a professional, nor do I have any interior decorating experience other than my own personal space. But I do enjoy getting inspiration and new ideas from reading magazines like **Domino**. Domino magazine is a guide to filling your space with warm and elegant décor to make it a haven for family and friends. Every month brings different articles on decorating trends, entertaining, shopping, home tours, and more. Many of the featured items are high-end, but it's still nice to know what they are because you can often find - or create - a low cost version of the designer element. In fact a beautiful tray that was too pricey for my budget inspired me to create my own decoupage tray for less than ten dollars. I have gotten many compliments, and everyone always assumes that I purchased it.
As far as style is concerned, the magazine doesn't seem to focus on any one particular design trend. I have found traditional, transitional, modern and rustic elements in many of the articles. There is a well-balanced and eclectic mix of design styles throughout the magazine that will suit any preference.
Overall, Domino magazine is an easy-to-thumb through source of ideas for anyone interested in creating stylish interiors.
This magazine is for all the interior decorators, designers and dreamers. Domino magazine offers superb ideas in home decorating. Most subscribers are interior designers, but it also gives great ideas and plans to anyone who is interested in updating the look of their home or designing a unique room. I love that they offer lots of ideas for window treatments, furniture and various other decor around the house. Each issue contains a whole issue full of designer wares, colorful paints, and unique patterns of textiles. The budget for the items is a little high, but they are guaranteed to make your house look beautiful. This magazine is filled with wonderful ideas for interior decorators, and great for home makers who need ideas to keep their home decor up to date.
