As I mentioned in the first post in this series (Decoration Inspiration Part 1), I love magazines and always save them (don’t ask me how many magazine subscriptions I currently have – it’s embarrassing!). Every now and then, I take a bunch of issues from the same month a certain number of years ago and look for inspiration. Sometimes, the things I bookmarked are still things I like, sometimes not so much… Either way, it’s fun to look back and see how trends (and my taste) have changed, and in this series, I’m highlighting some of the “best of” from a variety of magazines.

Today’s post has four favorites from the September 2006 issue of the sadly departed Domino Magazine. It is one of my all time favorite magazines, and I was really surprised (and disappointed) when they ceased publication in 2009. Anyway, here are some of my bookmarked images that I still love today:

1. This is the gorgeous living room of shoe designer Jessie Randall, and in addition to the huge windows and George Nelson lamp, I especially love the focal wall with gold wallpaper. A small-ish touch, but what a great glam statement it makes.

2. Awesome idea for a lamp base – both the base itself and decorating it with photo strips.

3. Love the muted color scheme in this one – the beige, the warm whites and the black, accented with that great pink bouquet.

4. In this picture, it’s the large red Tibetan silk scarf that I love. The pattern and colors are just beautiful, and it could work in so many ways – as a throw on a white sofa, as a (small) blanket on a bed, as wall decor, as a headboard, etc.
