Regional magazines keep people attuned to local happenings without having to rummage through their neighbors’ garbage or blackmail girl scouts for their secrets. Shelve intrusive tactics with today’s Groupon: for $14, you get a one-year subscription to East Coast Home + Design magazine (a $28 value).
East Coast Home + Design magazine lends subscribers a glossy-paged window into the region’s exemplary feats in architecture, landscaping, and interior design as well as tricks for homeowners to spruce up their dwellings. Crisp images and peeper-pleasing layouts burst from each informative feature such as Melange, a regular section detailing up-to-date products for the home such as trendy furniture, sleek kitchenware, and animatronic butlers. East Coast Home + Design’s In the Field feature enlightens readers with in-depth articles detailing resources for affluent homeowners—past editions have trumpeted the merits of a New York furniture and rug boutique and an East Coast home-theater designer. With an annual subscription, patrons receive six issues delivered to their door, including the Amazing Transformations issue, which showcases 30–35 instances in which ingenious architecture, verdant landscaping, or multiple-story cocoons have turned otherwise forgettable residences into abodes of Olympian grandeur.
