I guess with all of the changes going on here at AphroChic, and in the world of design blogs and magazines around the country, I couldn’t help but notice a change in one my favorite decor magazines, Elle Decor.  Have you noticed it?

I recently received the March issue and could not put it down.  The all-star makeover of the home of Oprah Winfrey Show Executive Producer, Elle Rakieten, was by far my favorite article.  Elle’s home, transformed by interior designer Nate Berkus and decorator Anne Coyle, graced the cover of the recent issue.  With stripes, ikat, gold and glitz all in one, it is truly the most eclectic home I have seen on the cover of Elle Decor.

The influx of more daring design and the number of beautiful spaces covered in this issue, signal to me a change at one our most iconic design mags.  Rather than growing more conservative in times when magazines are going under every month, Elle is turning it up a notch.

The spaces in this issue seemed more accessible (like, I could live there!), more modern and playful, and featured designs that were out of the box.  I am excited to see where Elle Decor goes next. 

Definitely get your hands on the March issue.  I promise you will love it.
