Hachette Carries the Hatchet.

More terrible news for the home design industry!  Goodbye Metropolitan HomeHachette Filipacchi Media has has decided that December will be the last issue of Metropolitan Home magazine. Instead, they will focus their energy into further developing Elle Decor. I have kept every single issue of these magazines (at least of the ones I’ve been reading since I don’t know when).

However, Hachette is not the only publisher feeling a loss. Every major publisher has foreclosed on a shelter magazine in the past 18 months. Unlike with past magazine closings at Hachette, including Elle Girl and Premiere, the company does not plan to keep a Web site up and running. Methome.com will be discontinued. I sure do hope you can keep home design readers and content worshippers alive Elle Decor. Just don’t smother it with too much advertising. Another one bites the dust.
