With our new editor Rebecca Caratti joining the team this month, this is the last of my editor’s letters for the magazine. I step into the role of editorial director of this beautiful title knowing that Rebecca will bring her formidable talents, vision and energy to steering Vogue Living forward and continuing the rich 50-year history that has made it so beloved worldwide. This month, we’re inspired by artists and artistic designers who have crafted wonderful living spaces that reflect their creativity and passions. The home of Spanish architect, artist and designer Guillermo Santomà, is beautifully described as ‘visual poetry’ (page 114). His sumptuous pink room, which adorns our cover, is the perfect balance of faded, old-world glamour meets modern, sculptural design. Vogue Living’s style editor Joseph Gardner and creative director Natasha Allen collaborated on the still-life pictures and artworks in our Inspire section (page 35) with stunning results. We also feature local designer David Flack (page 138) and design duo Juliette Arent and Sarah-Jane Pyke (page 124), who have created homes in rural Victoria and Sydney, respectively, that are richly layered but intuitive and much-loved spaces. All are lauded by their clients for the sophisticated and sympathetic approach they brought to the work. In our expanded travel section, Concierge, we take a trip to vibrant Jaipur (page 168) and our special section on apartment living (page 93) showcases spaces in New York’s Tribeca neighbourhood and Sydney, as well as a Hugh Lane-designed Melbourne home. All these spaces are as distinctive as they are different, yet they all have one thing in common: my desire to be immediately transported into them. I hope these pages allow you to virtually do just that. Enjoy.
The home office of designer Guillermo Santomà.
