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....
