Domino Closing Its Doors :(

This is indeed a very sad day! I just got word from CocoKelley that Domino is most likely shutting down their mag...I was hoping that this was just a rumor going around and then I came across this article...

“Although readership and advertising response was encouraging in the early years, we have concluded that this economic market will not support our business expectations.”- Conde Nast CEO- Chuck Townsend

WOW. One of my favorite magazines shutting down for good? It can't be! First O at Home then Cottage Living and now Domino...

But alas, the news is true- the March issue will be Domino's last.

Just read this post at Maison 21 last night that really made me think- he quotes "at least hopefully we bloggers will continue to inspire and entertain, and fill any of the voids left by the shrinking publishing industry." So true Maison- now it's up to us and our fellow bloggers to keep providing our readers with daily inspiration...although with the absence of some of our favorite magazines, it still just won't be the same...Sigh.

I am so broken hearted.
First Blueprint...now Domino!
What's a girl to do?

Wow. This is utterly devastating to me- I found this to be the only design magazine that regularly appealed to me, especially after Martha nixed Blueprint.

What rotten news, argh.

Ugh, this is terrible as Domino was my #1 source for pretty room inspiration. This hits home for me as well since I'm wanting to go into the magazine publishing industry once I'm out of college-yikes!

I'm so upset...this magazine was literally eye candy for me! Every month I was like the little kid at the candy store ... First blueprint...now this...I don't think I can take it...lol

Devastated! This mag took the spot eloquently of the retired House and Garden. Took the mantle and ran with it.
