Top Design


LOVE ME SOME KELLY WEARSTLER. For real. When I die can I come back as Kelly? Or Atticus, he's got a pretty sweet gig going too.  I'm obsessed with the 'break the rules' quote and think we all probably need it posted in our homes. And we need to make plans to stay in one of her hotels stat. Do I hear Palm Springs calling?

All of this reminded me of an article I read in the New York Times last week about Kelly's Top Design co-star Margaret Russell. The 'wasp-waisted' Ms. Russell has left Elle Decor for the halls of Architectural Digest. I was super confused (Elle Decor to Architectural Digest?) until I read the article and you see what AD is trying to do... get this stick out of it's... you know.

The article also details the recent demise of so many of our favorite shelter mags, including our beloved Domino. But it does not mention the abundance of new online shelter and style magazines on the market. A total oversight in my opinion. I want to know (and hope) that the glossies will still be able to thrive in the face of their online competitors.

Check out the article here. Does it make you want to be an AD subscriber?

PS... to help get you through Thursday, the National Zoo has new cheetah cubs and lion cubs. And you can watch them live online. What a great world we live in.
