APOLOGIES TO THOSE WHO have heard this spiel before, but here it goes: What should a print magazine look like in 2017? That’s the question I’ve been tasked with answering since starting this, my dream job. ELLE DECOR is a magazine about the best in design around the world. But design has always been, and will forever be, in every pocket of a stylish life—from interiors, fashion, art, and real estate to food and travel. Design isn’t just about pretty rooms, or rooms that make you think, or even ones that challenge you. Design is a reflection of who we are at any given moment in time. So too, then, must a magazine be such a reflection. And while I intend this new era to be ushered in by evolution rather than…

BOOTH MOORE For her story “The Edge of Innocence,” on page 154, Los Angeles fashion writer Booth Moore profiled idiosyncratic influencer Valerie von Sobel. “I find it interesting how people ‘dress’ their homes,” says Moore, who covers style and fashion for the Hollywood Reporter. “It can be just as much a reflection of personal style as what they put on their bodies.” VALERIE VON SOBEL Take one look at the elaborately layered Los Angeles home of Valerie von Sobel, on page 154, and it’s easy to guess that shopping is a favorite pursuit. “I should have been handcuffed on my recent trip to Europe,” she says. “In Sicily, I fell under the spell of Dolce & Gabbana. In Paris, the Marché aux Puces and Dries Van Noten. And that was before London.” CABINET ALBERTO…

werk ethic

At the beginning of the 20th century, the banker Adolphe Stoclet commissioned the Austrian architect Josef Hoffmann to design a modern mansion in Brussels that reflected a new, emerging sensibility far removed from the ornately decorated rooms that had been popular during the 19th century. As one of the founders of the Wiener Werkstätte (or Vienna Workshops), Hoffmann constructed a shockingly streamlined edifice filled with works by members of the artists’ collective, including a sparkling gold mosaic mural designed by Gustav Klimt—and starkly modern furniture by his frequent collaborator Koloman Moser. The Palais Stoclet was a true Gesamtkunstwerk, or total work of art. Everything, from the furniture down to the doorknobs and coffee cups, was custom made. But while the building’s magnificent interiors are still intact today, they have not…
