House Beautiful magazine is jumping deeper into Pinterest with its latest issue, which enables readers to grab images directly from its pages to post onto virtual pinboards on the social network. The magazine, best known for glossy spreads of yummy interior design, is embedding invisible digital watermarks into its "Kitchen of the Month" editorial in June. Once the watermarks are scanned with a smartphone app, readers are then directed to a Pinterest board with photos included in the story, which can then be reposted to their own Pinterest page.

Marian McEvoy, the new editor in chief of House Beautiful magazine, loves change: "I've always felt change is good. If you live with the same things around you, something in you goes to sleep." She also loves color--"colors that you can name--not shady gray or murky oatmeal--but lavender and lime and turquoise and lemon yellow. Real color." Editor since 1991 at Elle Decor, McEvoy, 51, was appointed last July, succeeding Louis Oliver Gropp.
