Nathan Stamos Named This Old House Publisher

Nathan Stamos has been promoted from associate publisher to publisher of This Old House. Stamos was the magazine’s acting publisher for the past few months — succeeding Charlie Kammerer who shifted to Real Simple — but now it is official.

“Nate has proven himself to be a smart, results-focused leader,” Evelyn Webster, president of Time Inc.’s Lifestyle Group, said in a statement. “He’s the ideal person to grow the nation’s number-one home enthusiast brand across all platforms — print, TV and digital.”

Stamos has been with Time Inc. since 1996. His new role is effective immediately.

State Department Enlists Home Design Magazine For D.C. Holiday Decor

magazine.jpgIt’s not quite the media bailout some of us were hoping for, but the State Department is asking magazines for their help with holiday decor.

Today, Nina Link of the Magazine Publishers of America stood with State Protocol Ambassador Capricia Penavic Marshall and announced that the two organizations are teaming up to create a festive re-imagining for two historical buildings in D.C.

The magazines will work with the State Department to create the “Magazine Holiday Design Showcase,” wherein each participating title gets a different section of the Harry S. Truman Building and the receiving rooms of the Blair House to showcase the historic structure’s rich and cultured history. Better Homes & Gardens will be taking over the Blair back room and house garden, while the building’s dining room will be designed by Martha Stewart Living (including “a Confectionery Tree covered in lollipop and sugar cookie ornaments” — yum).

Other participating magazines include This Old House, Mother Earth News, Natural Home and Traditional Home.

Full press release after the jump.
