The Skirted Roundtable: The State of Shelter magazines and Congrats to Michael Boodro – new eic of Elle Decor

Join Megan, Joni and I as we chat about all the changes in the shelter magazines. Margaret Russell from Elle Decor to Architectural Digest; Stephen Drucker from House Beautiful to Town and Country; and Dara Caponigro from Domino to Veranda. And their replacements? Big shoes to fill.

Have a listen to what we think is good, and bad, about these surprising moves.

Change is good, right?
