Harriett Hendren's Fash Food: Domaine's the name of new site

hhendren@herald-leader.comMay 2, 2013 

The living room of Sara Ruffin Costello's New Orleans home features 17-foot ceilings and walls painted a custom-mixed blue-green color she calls "swamp." It's one of the design inspirations at Domainehome.com.


Online fashion and trend magazine Who What Wear has launched a shelter site called Domaine.

Just like its sister site, Domaine takes readers on behind-the-scenes tours of celebrity homes, offers tips from industry experts and includes shopping links to featured products.

One of the first homes featured is the 19th-century New Orleans mansion of Sara Ruffin Costello, who was creative director of the beloved defunct Domino magazine. Rooms include a chic mix of velvet sofas, glass-topped coffee tables and heirloom paintings.

There's a Kentucky link when it comes to Costello's list of favorite shopping haunts in the Big Easy. Among her picks: Leontine Linens, owned by Lexington native Jane Scott Hodges.
