editor’s letter

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…

Laura Jones Sydney artist Laura Jones drew on her background as a florist when creating her artwork Space Dahlias (page 40). “My work has grown from a desire to express a love for nature — the process of painting beginning with the physical act of arranging flowers,” says Jones. “With this piece, I loved responding to a still life by transitioning the colour and form of the flowers and objects into a more abstract interpretation.” The holder of a master’s degree in art from UNSW Art & Design, Jones declares herself “inspired by Mother Nature” and is passionate in her efforts to impress a love of the environment onto her audience. Her most recent work engaged with climate change’s impact on coral and the mass coral bleaching of the Great Barrier…

Jodie: I moved to LA from Australia 10 years ago. We’ve just opened our flagship store in Beverly Hills. Australians are similar to Southern Californians — their aesthetics are both dictated by climate and a relaxed lifestyle. Sally: Jodie and I design all the collections together. Based in Adelaide, I am surrounded by natural beauty and this definitely informs our work. Jodie: We match our artisans [in India] with the designs and weaves. If we’ve designed a soumak rug, we’ll seek out someone trained in that field. I have a deep love of India and its people. We’ve built up quite a close-knit community. armadillo-co.com ILLUMINATE: British designer Lee Broom’s celestial lighting arrives in April, exclusively at Space Furniture.
