Win an Atomic Ranch subscription!

23 Dec

Our favorite magazine is based out of Portland, Oregon and they do a wonderful job of providing design inspiration, promoting mid-century inspired businesses and bringing together a community of mid-century modern enthusiasts.

We are very excited to announce that Mimomito and Atomic Ranch are teaming up to promote MCM Design. We’ll be hosting a giveaway of a generously donated one year subscription of Atomic Ranch Magazine. In order to qualify you will need to do the following:

1) Check out and tell us what book looks the most interesting to you.

2) Add Atomic Ranch on Facebook and let us know that you did so.

3) Add Mimomito on Facebook and let us know that you did so.

Please write all three in one comment and use your real name so we can verify that the winner,  in fact, added both pages. The winner will be selected at random.

 The contest will end on January 1st, 2011 so that you can bring in the new with style.  Good luck! And thanks again to Atomic Ranch.

    I’m already a Mimomito FB fan, I also joined “Friends of Atomic Ranch Magazine” on FB. As for books, I’d love “Forgotten Modern: California Houses 1940-1970” – awesome! Great giveaway!

    I’m a fan of mimomito on FB, I added atomic ranch and I <3 the Frank Lloyd Wright Mid-Century Modern book. My wife has taught me all about his work and I too have become a huge fan. A subscription would be such a nice birthday gift for my golden year (1/11/11). ;)

    Already a fan of mimomito on FB.
    Just became a fan of Atomic Ranch.

    …and the book I am most interested in on the Atomic Ranch Website is ‘Silver Palaces’ because Airstreams have always fascinated me.

    I was already a fan of Atomic Ranch and I just found Mimomito today so I’m now a fan there too. Delighted to hear you are teaming up. We are currently playing with plans for our dream home. I would love to have a copy of Atomic Ranch Design Ideas. Our home will definitely be in that category. We’re so excited! Thanks.

    Iam now an an happily FB fan for both pages!!
    regarding the books it’s a tough decision to take, I will say:

    A Constructed View: The Architectural Photography of Julius Shulman
    because he is the one who inspire us and the public about MCM architecture.


  17. Rob Tocalino December 27, 2010 at 9:51 am #

    Thanks for pointing us to Modern Ranch. We’re drooling over “Cliff May and the Modern Ranch,” and have “liked” both Mimimoto and Atomic Ranch!

    I just joined Atomic Ranch AND Mimomito on facebook, and I would like to read about the open house in Elk Grove, Wi because that is nearby and I would love to see a home all decorated in retro style! I’m a “midcentury marvel” myself, and decor of that era appeals to me more and more! I would love to see more of it for more ideas of things I can do myself!

    Oh man, this is all exactly what I’ve been looking for. I’m new to MCM. I’ve always loved the style, but only recently began to study and collect it. Just joined Mimomito and Atomic Ranch on FB. RE: books, as a recent transplant to Sacramento, I’m especially interested in “Forgotten Modern.” Thanks!

  24. Nick mizell December 31, 2010 at 6:00 pm #
