Departures Adds Shelter Supplement

Departures is getting into the shelter game with a new supplement, titled “Home & Design.” According to WWD, the mini-mag will be bagged with next May’s issue and sent to AmEx platinum and centurion card members.

Departures’ Home & Design is just the latest entry into the crowded luxury shelter publication market. There are plenty of them because high-end advertisers bring big bucks to spend on ad space.

If you want proof that Home & Design is going to succeed, here is what AmEx’s senior vice president and publishing director, Steven DeLuca, told WWD about the title:

There are shelter magazines, but no shelter magazines serving readers at our level. Two-thirds of our readers have two homes. A third of our readers have three homes or more.

Well, well, well! Aren’t they fancy? Their readers might have three houses, but we have an apartment so small you can cook your dinner in the kitchen while sitting on the couch in the living room. Top that.

The Los Angeles Times Magazine, once known as West, returns on Sunday, and the theme is Home Design.

Home away from home, more accurately.

“Home Design” issue is devoted to “The Baja Plunge” and features a special report by senior style editor Barbara Thornburg on five Mexican beach homes purchased and decorated by Southern Californians at various price points with striking home and landscape photography by Joao Canziani.

Mexico City-based staff writer Reed Johnson travels deeper south into Baja California Sur to take the pulse of coastal Mexico’s next big boom spot and examines the costs, benefits and challenges of developing in the area.

Tips and ideas on how to get the Mexican beach house look without leaving town.

A trio of Baja getaways for food and wine enthusiasts with delicious off-the-beaten-track adventures.

The New York Observer had a special section included in the print edition, but not online, The Home Observer , edited by Tim Street-Porter and Annie Kelly. Included were a look at a new book by Diane Keaton and D. J. Waldie, California Romantica, and Wendy Goodman’s book, Tony Duquette. There’s also a look at Jonathan Adler’s beach house and design doyenne Marian McEvoy’s 18th century house in upstate NY. Try to scrounge one up, as it’s fabulous.
