Architectural Digest editor in chief Margaret Russell has named Anita Sarsidi to the new position of contributing interiors editor, effective October 15. Russell originally hired Sarsidi at Elle Decor, in 1989, and the two have worked together on and off for many years. Since then, Sarsidi has served as magazine’s design and decoration editor, design director, and most recently, contributing design editor.

“Just as extraordinary fashion stylists influence what we wear and how we wear it, creative talents like Anita shape the way we design our homes,” said Russell. “Her singular sense of style will be a great asset to Architectural Digest, as her subtle touches make beautiful rooms look even more alluring. We worked together for years, and I’m thrilled have her on my editorial team once again.”
Sarsidi will be under contract exclusively at Architectural Digest, and she'll be helping to create beautiful photos and spreads for the magazine's print and digital editions.
