Currently my website has a cover page as its main landing page, with the Vignette template. I actually really like how it looks - an image on one side, content on the other. I haven't found a non-cover-page template that does this, so I'm thinking of just replicating that cover page a few times with the content I want (a few pages of text).
(I don't want one long page with all the sections and I don't have enough large images to warrant things like full-bleed or parallax scrolling)
The trouble might be in setting up a blog with this layout - I'm not sure how cover pages handle blog
