The Simply Luxurious Life®: Architectural Renovation  

February 15, 2011

Architectural Renovation

Formerly the editor in chief of Elle Decor for 10 years (all in total 21 years at the magazine), Margaret Russell debuts her first issue as editor of Architectural Digest with the March 2011 issue. Determined to bring the once standard setting shelter magazine back to its former pedestal, Russell cleaned house deciding not to renew the plush writer’s contracts and even bringing in new staff this summer, some from Elle Decor.

With her determination to present material to a new tech-savvy reader (many efforts are in place to coordinate with iPad apps), she resolves to stay loyal to the foundation of what Architectural Digest was built upon - “showcasing the most striking architecture and sumptuous interiors”. After two long months of “renovation” on her debut issue, the magazine is ready for it’s big reveal. I look forward to picking up the copy to see exactly what she will be offering.

I thought the issue was great! Still very AD but slightly updated...even down to the advertisements. Job well done in my book.

I thought the issue was fantastic. Actually, better than I had anticipated. You can definitely feel her touch....and I think AD is improved because of it.
