One note: Randal Weeks informed me that now that Spring Market is finally over – they are going to judge the Aidan Gray contest! Yeah!!!! Hopefully it won’t take that long, but as soon as I have the list of winners, I will post them.
While we are waiting for those results – I am thrilled to announce another fabulous giveaway today!!!
Over the past ten years, the state of magazines have been on a roller coaster ride. When I started blogging, each Thursday I would go to the book store and stock up on all the brand new design magazines. Sometimes my arms would ache from all the magazines I carried home!
After that peak, the industry went through a bit of a slump – there were fewer advertisers and some titles that we all loved like old family friends were shuttered for good. This dark phase lasted a few years until the industry started turning around. Some old magazines like “domino” made a comeback and new titles like “Milieu” were successfully launched.
One of my favorite new magazines is “Southern Home.”
Have you seen this one? It was founded in 2015 and is published by Hoffman Media whose other titles include Southern Lady, Victoria,, Cottage Journal, Celebrate, and Taste of the South, among others.
I have to tell you – Southern Home is truly a wonderful magazine! It’s worth buying both to read and to look at the images! It’s so thick!! Southern Home comes out every other month and in each issue they spotlight ten to twelve houses!!! That is an amazing statistic! How many magazines show just three houses or five at most?
And, the houses in Southern Home are all from the south, of course. Each type of design is featured - from classic to French to contemporary – so you get a nice range of styles.
And, each house photographed in Southern Home is special – there aren’t any throw-aways. You know what I mean. Most magazines always have a house or two that you just pass over quickly. Not in Southern Home. It’s amazing because each house is wonderful and you will SLOWLY turn the page. I promise. No rushing through this magazine!!!
I know I am partial to southern design so I’m a little biased about their choices of houses. If you enjoy the homes I show on my blog, I’m sure you will love Southern Home.
AND….I’m excited to share the following news about Southern Home magazine:
