Look Who We Met!

>> Wednesday, June 9, 2010

We met Margaret Russel , editor-in-chief of Elle Decor magazine!
The Boston Design Center held a luncheon where Margaret talked about her newest book Substance and Style. During her introduction, she was referred to as the Anna Wintour of Interior Design, which I could not agree more. I will admit, I was super intimidated upon approach. But, Margaret was no Devil Wears Prada. So was so sweet and down to earth and possesses such a wealth of knowledge regarding the design industry. It was a honor to get to hear her speak and I hope our paths cross again in the future.

And Carlee, Linds, and Emily (Emily was sadly crowded out of the first picture by all the adoring fans) this was the best. lunch break. ever!
And I can't end this post without saying...can I please have Margaret Russell's arms when I grow up? Please.

It was good to see you yesterday, however briefly {I was sick and trying not to spread my pestilence}.

It looks like you had fun and figured out how to do the whole Design Center thing

Wasn't that a great event? It's always fun to get out and connect with the Boston design community (and meet a design star at the same time!)

Lets do it again soon!!

Oh my I had NO idea you were there! I am so bummed I could not stay for the lunch and finally meet you in person. Wasn't she so inspirational? So down to earth and I love how she spoke about affordable options like the Z Gallerie Chandelier!

Too funny about the arm. I think to me that would be like meeting Stephen King or Jennifer Weiner. I might be too in aww to think of taking a picture. Well done! =)
