I picked up the second to last issue of Domino yesterday on clearance for $1. I was a casual Domino reader- I read enough to be sad when Conde Nast decided to do away with it. Ever since I read the spread on Sunrise Ruffalo I haven't been able to get something she was quoted as saying out of my mind.
"I love how leather looks with oily fingerprints on it," she says. "But I don't use tons of white. You know, throw pillows can cover up a lot: You don't need plastic surgery if you can cut bangs and use lip liner!"Its so true! Hmmm bangs maybe..... I definitely love her bedroom desk set-up. I will be mimicking it as soon as the right desk comes along. Happy Tuesday!
