This morning, I was looking for some past issues of Domino for a work project, and I had forgotten that I’d saved about three years’ worth of the now-defunct, yet brilliant and sorely missed style/design publication.
As I thumbed through a couple of the issues (November 2005 and September 2006, to be exact), I began oohing and ahhhing over the unexpected color combinations, the decor tips, the clutter cures, the chic makeovers and meticulously culled accessories. It was as if I was reading those issues for the first time.
Then, it came to me. Without spending any money on additional home magazines (yeah, that’s you, Elle Decor and House Beautiful), I was not only recycling old issues, I was also enjoying them as much as I had when I pulled them out of the mailbox back in 2005! It was all new to me.
How fabulous! I know now that I have oodles of hours ahead of free entertainment and education, thanks to some old, stowaway magazines and timeless editing.
I still spit on Conde Nast for removing this thing of beauty from our world.
Do you re-read old magazines? Are you as much of a magazine whore as I am?
