I realized the other day that I've reached the bargaining stage of my grieving process over the demise of Domino magazine--specifically, I'm instituting literally every tip, trick and suggestion featured in the last issue in the hopes that the dead magazine will see how much I value their advice and COME BACK.
My favorite act of decorating desperation thus far was Domino's suggestion to gather all of my scattered bathroom supplies on a pretty tray and set it out on the counter for cute, easy access, which totally revolutionized my life:
My grandma gave me this rad, Pucci-esque tray a couple years ago, insisting I use it to serve my guests cherry cordials, but toothpaste and moisturizer are more my style. My guests are welcome to help themselves to a Q-tip.
The whole set-up looks great with my framed portrait of Alexander Hamilton in the corner there, which just so happens to go great with Domino's recent article promoting federalist-inspired style. (OK, honestly, I had the portrait up before I started grieving Domino, but I think I can still use it to bargain.)
Anyway, thanks for the great tips, Domino! I'm off to order that custom-made $25,000 china cabinet you mentioned, so I'll see you in my mailbox in a couple weeks, right? Right?!
