House & Home Magazine, Does Anyone Know How Much A Subcription Costs In The USA?


Now that In Style Home is gone, along with House and Garden, it seems there is a void. Blogs seem to be taking up the slack, but what is it about holding a book or a magazine in your hands?
The list of top North American decor magazines still alive includes, Domino, of course; O at Home (the Nate Berkus story); Elle (getting all the leavings); Metropolitan Home; Veranda (old school); Arch Digest (even older); House Beautiful (trying to be on trend). There are regional spin-offs around such as Western Interiors; Shelter; New Orleans Home, and the Canadian House and Home, which I have never actually held in my hands (they don't answer my e-mails about the cost of a subscription in the USA). Of course there are the romantic mags, the best being Country Living; MS Living; Trad Home, but all those other cottage and coast ones are icky.
So thank god for the blogs. I can almost reach out and touch....

Hi. I live in the US and have been subscribing to Canadian House & Home since 2001. A digital-only subscription is $25.95 Canadian dollars, print-only subscription is $59.95 Canadian dollars, or both a digital and print subscription is $65.95 Canadian. As of today, $1 buy $1.02 Canadian. Depending on your credit card company, they may charge you a little bit for the currency exchange. I have both but I would say their digital version is excellent. It's a terrific magazine.

I live in Canada. For $5.95 you can pick up an issue of Canadian House and Home. (24 issues @ $44.95and 12 issues @ $24.95.)One magazine that I've been subscribing to for yearS is: STYLE AT HOME. It is a fantastic magazine! For an issue, the cost is $4.95, or for an one full year subscription (12 issues) @ $23.95. I Particularly love that they feature a 'high/low' page, where one room is virtually dressed the same way but there is a vast difference in price range. (Very beneficial to those on a budget.) Also featured is a 'source listing' for products available on the retail market here in Canada. (Easier on the pocket-book as Shipping Fees are cheaper and there is no Intl. Duty to pay.)

And by now some of those on the "still living" list have been moved to the "deceased" list.
