We all know about vintage Vogue covers and photos but also available for purchase from the CondeNast website are vintage House & Garden covers which, as an Interior Designer, I am mad about. I would love to cover the walls in my office with some of these. It's very interesting to note that although these covers are all roughly 80 years old they could well have been painted today as they depict scenes which seem to be so like designs which are being created today. For example a traditional plate wall above is similar to that created by Kelly Wearstler at the Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica - a modern take on traditional design.

Very cool Anna! Love the middle image. Smart observation about the plates (hung like Viceroy wall) in the last image.

Glad you all like them as much as I do. I love the Vogue fashion covers and images too but these are fantastic because not many people know about them. Shh - it'll be out little secret!!
