I had a wonderful time earlier this week at the Elle Decor event held at Gump’s in San Francisco. I had the opportunity to meet a wonderful woman in the world of interior design, Margaret Russell, Editor in Chief of Elle Decor.
The night was absolutely lovely. Margaret was signing her new book, Style and Substance, and even took time to talk with me and my husband about how we entered the world of interiors, our blog, and our boutique.
Not only am I big fan of the new book, which I posted about last year, but in the world of shrinking shelter mags, I am extremely impressed by Margaret’s vision for Elle Decor as the magazine moves into a new decade. I was happy to hear her thoughts about working with bloggers that she also expressed in the February issue of Elle Decor:
“Design bloggers have stimulated an animated and powerful dialogue based largely on images published in magazines. They are our treasured partners, and the conversation they engender and sense of community they encourage benefit us all.”
Margaret, I could not agree more. What a wonderful evening, and a wonderful vision for the way we can all work together to share our love of design.
Have a happy weekend everyone!
