Domino's Greatest Hits: Drew Barrymore

Drew Barrymore hangs out in her perfectly eclectic Flower Films office

Ever since last month's devastating announcement that Domino was being shuttered, it seems that its loyal fans are trying to keep it, or at the very least, the memory of it, alive. Earlier today, I came across a picture of Drew Barrymore out on the town with a friend. She was wearing the cutest 60s-inspired dress (I am obsessed with all things from the 60s right now, i.e. Mad Men, music, fashion) and it got me reminiscing about the feature Domino ran on the stylish headquarters for her production company, Flower Films, about a year ago.

Drew partnered with Ruthie Sommers to create a space that is equally fabulous and welcoming. A perfect reflection of Barrymore's personality, it borrows from many styles, both old and new, resulting in a space that seems to exude the same warmth as her personality.


Barrymore sought to create "a chic working environment that reflects each partner's personality."
The inspiration wall changes with each new film.

In order to create contrast between the oak furniture and brown leather chair, Sommers painted the hutch red and added a crimson border to the ivory drapes in partner Nancy Juvonen's office.

A vintage chair and vintage portrait of an unknown socialite can be found next to Drew's inspiration wall.

I love the sharp contrast of black, white, and green in the kitchen, which has become the heart of the office. The walls are painted in Farrow & Ball's Sugar Bag Light.

A detailed shot features the antique knocker on the unmarked door to the office. Some day, I will have a red door. Can you imagine if you were in the neighborhood and knocked on their door by mistake only to have Drew answer the door?!

The powder room also features unique vintage accessories. The walls are dressed in Farrow & Ball's cheerful "Ranelagh Papers".

So many amazing details! I love the "Kelly" Chippendale chairs by Chapman Radcliff Home and the white carved "Louis XV" mirror by Ames Ingham. The portrait in the center is of Drew's grandfather, actor John Barrymore.

I posted that I love the fabric on her sofa. I even tried to get in touch with her and her stylist because i need help. i finally found the fabric i love which is hers but the dang fabric is 438 a yard...not in my budget at all. if you see anything like the multi colored sofa on the cover please let me know....but not at that price..(winks)

I love that this space has ornate elements without looking stuffy or outdated. The sconce in the first pic is so pretty.

Oh, please, please . . . make Domino's Greatest Hits a regular feature on your blog! And I gotta believe that if all the fans that are so upset by the news committed to paying $10 an issue for a less-frequent, but still-around edition of Domino, it could exist somehow!

I am so sad about Domino, too. But I have a feeling that when the economy bounces back, they might bring the magazine back. Supposedly the readership was strong, but the ad pages were down. Which is true for almost all mags now. So let's cross our fingers, it's happened before!

I love that article on her! Drew is one of those people who if I ever met I know we would be friends...I know I sound like a stalker.

This was one of my Domino favorites as well. I just read Blume's "Let's Bring Back" book & she morns the loss of Domino as well.
