Gorgeous photos! Makes me wish my apartment wasn't so drab. Sigh. I especially love the photo of the model in that big poofy dress in the ballroom. So glamorous!

captivate me. said...

oh my goodness, these homes!! It seems so fitting that couture should be shot in a "haute home" :-) Love it!

Opé - Style Artist said...

That is gorgeous!I always have dreamed of a shoot like this for myself. One day soon.

Jaime said...

Love the model in Greece. It's my dream to go there!

Little Rus said...

Gorgeous! So grand and chic. I don't know if it's just me but I really do not get that winner of the Australia's next top model (Featured in Australian Vogue), she's just so sad, pale and sad, again... Adore black & white photograph.

Ela said...

These homes are gorgeous! I'd never want to leave :) Don't think I can pick a favourite! xx

Cathy Voyage said...

Lovely houses and furniture!

Lily said...

The location of an editorial is nearly as important as the clothes. I love the June 06 British Vogue picture the orange dress gives the image such a dramatic effect and adore the image from the november 08 italian marie claire it reminds me so much of the Romanovs. x

pranksygang said...

I would be very happy indeed to live in any of these lush interiors.

Italian Vogue. September 2003. Most divine space ever. I can just imagine Marie Antoinette hosting lavish parties there! :)

Iva said...

amazing photos. I love the last one!

Kristin said...

Why don't I look like that when I'm hanging out in my living room? Ah ha

OceanDreams said...

Love the photo from British vogue, all wonderful photos though. I am in love with their dresses!

Carol said...

I wnat to be wherever the girl is in the oragne dress!

Diego R. Wyatt said...

The combination of architecture, immaculate decor and high fashion is mind-blowing. My absolute favorite is the editorial from Italian Vogue, September 2003. The decor reflects opulence at its best, but is outdone only by the look the model is wearing. Stunning!

Bella said...

Down to an artform, they just seem to go hand-in-hand, don't they!

I'm dying over the very whimsical-Alice in Wonderland elements of the Italian Vogue, September 2003 image. It's so captivating and inspirational.
Sigh, if only my dining room looked like that! xxx

Elizabeth Marie said...

These are so striking! I don't know where to look!!


Happy Thursday CC! XOXO!

Make Do Style said...

The orange flowing dress, the blue of the sea and the white steps are divine!

freeteyme said...

dapper kid said...

For a brief moment when I was younger I wanted to be an interior designer, and I still plan out my dream home. That shot from Japanese Vogue is so stunning, and I absolutely love the colours in that shot from Vogue UK!! Hope you're having a beautiful day dear :)

Give me a house by the water any day!

clarewbrown said...

Ahhh, CC! You read my mind! I just got a brand new (and very empty) Manhattan apartment. It desperately needs to be furnished. In my mind I want it to look like these photos (lol, won't happen) but I will give it a shot!
Cheers!

Bostonista said...

interior design magazines have only just recently caught my interest and now I'm obsessed. Fashion & interior design & architecture really do go hand in hand. These photos are all so beautiful--I can't wait to have a place where I can create my own dreamy environment,

Lily said...

Gorgeous photos. Everything is so opulent.

Midtown Girl said...

Most of the furniture in my apt is tufted (leather & fabric). Haute enough?

Lovely photos CC! I feel quite sad now as even the wallpaper in these editorials is more glamourous than me

Trixy said...

The home in the Steven Meisel, Sept. 03 Vogue is so glamorous!
