Have a gorgeous mountain home submission or a great story idea you’d like to share?

The editors of Mountain Living are always looking for stunning homes to feature, from luxurious high-country retreats to charming guest cabins, with styles that range from traditional to contemporary. If you’d like to submit a home for consideration, below are a few tips for getting published on our pages. 

BEFORE SUBMITTING 

Familiarize yourself with Mountain Living’s editorial content; how are features written, what departments are included. You will save yourself time by understanding the content before you send your pitch. 

CRITERIA FOR CONSIDERATION 

  • The homeowners have given their permission to publish the home in Mountain Living via the 2020 Homeowners Release.
  • The home is not for sale or about to go on the market. 
  • The project has not been previously published in print or digital magazine sites. (Projects published on your web site for marketing purposes are okay.) 
  • The project is located in the Rocky Mountain West. 
  • The home is a lived-in residence—no model or spec homes please. 

WHAT TO SEND 

Submit via email and include a brief description of the home with size, location and any distinctive details. 

Include images of the exterior, great room, kitchen, dining area, master bedroom and bath. Please send jpgs, pdfs or a link to a non-expiring Dropbox folder. Do not send thumb drives. If you send printed photos, be certain to enclose a SASE if you’d like them returned. 

THE PROCESS 

We plan features approximately 9-12 months in advance prior to the run date. Our Mountain Living editorial team meets every 4-6 weeks and we will get back to you with a decision.

Send your great ideas to Darla Worden at dworden@mountainliving.com.
