In addition to providing people with compelling stories and photography, magazines supply the raw materials to piece together ransom notes demanding more magazine subscriptions. Demand to be informed with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get a one-year subscription to Oregon Home magazine (a $29.94 value).
Oregon Home's scribes spotlight the state’s artfully constructed domiciles and arm homesteaders with a wealth of tips, tricks, and design ideas for use in their own houses. A one-year subscription nets readers six issues of home and living advice from domestic experts, featuring up-to-date coverage of the top trends in Beaver State interior-design, gardening, and dam-building techniques. The magazine’s homes section grants subscribers a glimpse into some of the regions’ most interesting cribs—such as Mona and Doug Heath’s rehabilitated and modernized 1969 Airstream Tradewind—and helpful how-tos on outfitting abodes with a classic lodge or modern hotel-inspired design. The décor section updates readers on stylish interior-decorating options, and green-thumbed subscribers can spruce up outdoor spaces and complete their UFO landing site after perusing inspiring garden articles. In addition to household information, Oregon Home showcases the humans inside their dwellings in a people section that profiles the complex relationship between homeowners and their residences.
_Oregon Home_ Magazine
Sustained by the mantra “real people, real homes”, editor Robin Doussard constructs bimonthly mags devoted to capturing first-person accounts of local home design, as recounted by everyone from homeowners to architects. Oregon Home¬_’s staffers have dropped in on the likes of a young couple whose bungalow was featured on an episode of _Portlandia and a husband and wife who gave a vintage-inspired makeover to a dilapidated 1969 Airstream motor home. Visits to locales such as Timberline Lodge teach readers how to domesticize large-scale design, and décor articles spotlight decorative punctuation in the way of table lamps and throw pillows. The garden section also digs up a spectrum of projects, from maintaining compact urban plots to hammering out gazebos and hostels for caravanning garden gnomes.
