COTE DE TEXAS: SOUTHERN HOME– A GIVEAWAY!!!!

SOUTHERN HOME– A GIVEAWAY!!!!

 

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:

 

 

Southern Home is now available on ZINIO.com!  That means you can  subscribe digitally to the magazine.  No more paper, you just read it online.   I love ZINIO.  I read all my magazines online and I no longer have to deal with old issues building up in the corner!  Freedom!! 

 

If you prefer to read Southern Home on the computer, here is the link HERE.  You can buy just the current issue, or an old issue, or you can subscribe yearly.

 

 

If you like to read magazines the good old fashioned way, Southern Home has been kind enough to extend a discount for each year subscription!!!!!

 

 

 

Click HERE to get the discounted year subscription including a FREE issue!!!

 

 

 

And there is more….

 

 

 

Southern Home is giving away FIVE one-year subscriptions to FIVE lucky Cote de Texas readers.

 

 

 

That’s FIVE winners!!

 

 

 

FIVE!!!

 

 

 

In order to enter to win the subscription, all you have to do is go to the Southern Home Facebook page HERE and “Like” it.

 

 

Then come back here and leave me a comment with your EMAIL address so that if you win, I can notify you.

 

That’s all!!!

 

Here’s a huge thank you to Lynn Terry and the group at Southern Home Magazine!!!!!

I’m off to read my new issue!!!

  73. Hi Joni, I Love Southern Homes and Thank you for running the contest!!! If I win this, it will be a public service as it will keep me out of the supermarket aisles paging through the magazine and blocking other customers' access to superior design.��.......Well, so much for my pitch....it will make me very happy, anyway. I can't say enough how much I Love your blog and have been lurking and reading it for ten years now....You are one of the very few design bloggers who is still posting Fabulous Rococo, Baroque, sumptuous interiors which is the only thing keeping me sane as I struggle to retreat from the encroachment of mid-century style -- I know, I know, other people love it, it's not personal, and for them I say "Hurray for Mid-Century Renaissance," For me, I could not leave my parents' 70's decor fast enough. Joni, you are the Mecca, the Deity, for all that is beautiful, the one I turn to for Beauty sustenance when I long for the serendipitous curves of the Kings Louis-Louis. May you live a long, delightful and healthy life and may you never, ever, ever stop blogging....Please!!�� Sabrina dawdlebythedaffodils@yahoo.com
