The New Architectural Digest

I had the pleasure of attending a lunch at the Condé Nast Building today for an exclusive preview of the new Architectural Digest.  Margaret Russell walked a small group of us through the new features that debut in the March 2011 issue.  I can tell you without a doubt that you are going to love it!  The magazine hasn’t changed so much that long time subscribers will be unhappy but it has been freshened up enough to now appeal to a broader audience.  I was especially excited to see the Fifth Avenue apartment of eccentric fashion iconDaphne Guinness by Daniel Romualdez and the Paris home of Pierre Passebon, antiquaire and partner of Jacques Grange.  There is also a gorgeous Mississippi home designed by Richard Keith Langham and the cover shot of room designed by Michael Smith could not look more chic.  I hope the March issue of Architectural Digest finds its way to your mailbox or local newsstand soon!

    I’m so glad Margaret Russell has taken over the helm of AD, because now I have another magazine to feed by addiction. Its stunning…and has managed to convert me to a fan of Michael S Smiths…that cover shot is so beautiful.

    Yes, I’ve started buying AD again too. Sounds like you had a wonderful day!

    Heather, have you seen the Feb/Mar issue of Elle Decor? Steven Gambrel’s ‘Tudor Truimph’ is absolutely stunning. I love every single photo & I’m guessing you will too!

    I know Margaret Russell had to walk a fine line between those who loved AD the way it was and those who wanted change – and so far, she’s done it with elegant flair and style! Can’t wait to see the Michael Smith spread as I believe it’s an apartment in NY overlooking Central Park.

    Although my work has appeared in ARCHITECTURAL DIGEST several times, and I was grateful for the coverage, it was definitely time for Paige Rense Noland to retire. I am excited, for all of us, about the magazine’s future.
