EDI­TOR’S LET­TER

VOGUE Living Australia - - Contents -

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.
