Ready, Set, Domino!

The sheets are all entangled from the previous night's sleep.  Pillows are stacked on each side of the bed with head prints wrinkled into the center.  Half empty cups are lying around the room as if placed strategically by one in need of water for every corner of the room.  Yesterday's clothes are scattered throughout the room and oddly placed pictures hang crooked on the wall.  This is my room.  

My sister had just posted pictures on her blog which 'caused me to re-evaluate the set up in my own room, and I am gravely disappointed at my previous choice of design.  It lacks pizazz!     

My good friend, Becky, introduced me to Domino Magazines a few years ago and it was love at first sight.  I was addicted to the magazine racks each month to see the newest issue and drool over every page.  I would find them on the racks at my local grocer or in the shelves at my favorite book stores.  They were MARVELOUS.

I owned just about all 4 years worth of issues and I cut out every piece of inspiration I could.  I created a Decoration Inspiration notebook (which I suggest for all of you) of all the cutouts in order to achieve my dream design for a home that will be.  But Domino was ahead of my game.  A little over a year ago, Domino decided to pluck my Decorator's heart out of my body and put it into a book.  AHHH!!!!  It truly is amazing.

So I get to pull the book off my shelf every so often and get re-inspired again.
