Musical chairs in the world of shelter mags! It's been a few years of major change in many ways for decor magazines. Between closings and job switches, almost nothing is as it was a few years ago with the group of magazines we've held subscriptions to. The latest big shake-up at Architectural Digest now affects two titles...

...since it has been officially announced that Margaret Russell is leaving Elle Decor to replace Paige Rense, effective this September, according to Otto-Otto.

It's big news - Margaret Russell has been at Elle Decor for twenty years, meaning that there are now two magazines going forward without their long time leaders (Rense was at AD for 35+ years!). The New York Times reports that, as well as gaining a new editor-in-chief, the magazine will make a move from Los Angeles to New York.

Decor fans, let us know: Does this news change your expectations about Architectural Digest? Who do you think will take the reins at Elle Decor?
