Spring has officially sprung—when it comes to our latest issue, that is. The spring edition of Domino is here, featuring none other than French photographer, illustrator, and all-around style guru Garance Doré on our cover in her serene Los Angeles abode.
The O.G. tastemaker shares how she worked with interior designer Sarah Sherman Samuel to transform a contemporary home into something that felt perfectly relaxed and intimate. “Once you make this decision—to live in something more modern, built by a developer—the question is how do you add character? How do you soften the edges?” she muses.
The answer often lies in color—the overarching theme of this issue. While Doré’s palette is a warm, Californian mix of blush, terra-cotta, and the occasional pop of blue, elsewhere in the magazine’s pages, you’ll find every hue of the rainbow.
A vivid tour through Havana offers an invigorating study in pattern and color, from electric blues and Day-Glo pinks to lemon yellows and energetic greens. Likewise, a trip through Stockholm with interior architect and photographer Tekla Evelina Severin showcases the beauty of sunset-toned facades and makes a convincing argument that the best design in the city might just be found in its subway stations.
Of course, it wouldn’t be swing without some celebration, and the Mexico City wedding of creative duo Ellen Marie Bennett and Casey Caplowe provides ample inspiration for a nuptial fete, from the bride’s yellow-dipped Christian Siriano gown to the shower of rose petals that made a romantic substitute for the traditional rice. For other festive occasions, chef Camille Becerra’s inventively monochromatic dishes make for enticing menus.
Amid other pages, editor picks appeal to a wide array of palette preferences, from pastels and nudes to electrifying neons, and dynamic interiors provide plenty of colorful decorating and renovating ideas. We’ve set the tone for a new season, and it’s positively vibrant. For a dose of color therapy that will keep you inspired for months on end, look for our spring issue on newsstands the first week of March and subscribe to be the first to receive each edition.
