Vintage interiors have so much scope for the imagination. I love looking at them and imagining what it was like to live in this space, at this time, seeing the world through the particular lens of the '40s or '60s or '70s. And of course, it's fascinating to watch decor trends come and go, to see these rooms that are so strange and yet at the same time so familiar. So I was particularly excited to find this treasure trove of living rooms from Vogue, full of lovely and luxurious interiors spanning the years, all the way back to 1944.
