A Lovely Mess


I discovered this editorial from the October 2010 issue of Vogue Spain on Francesca's blog and, of course, it was instant love. The settings remind me of the abandoned sites we've visited, only way more awesome! I wish I could walk into a room like this.

The editorial is very Grey Gardens with the headscarves and the cats roaming around, but like Francesca, they instantly reminded me of the article I read recently about the Paris apartment that had been left untouched since WWII. Did you see it? The story goes that a woman left her apartment in Paris just before the war and never returned. It sat untouched for over 70 years! Walking into it must have been like entering a time capsule. How magical would that have been?

I love the interiors. Although I'd want to go in and clean it and spoil the whole effect.

I was half hoping they would make the untouched-since-WWII apartment a museum or give tours, so I could see it! It seriously sounds like a dream come true.

I love this editorial, too. It's so strangely glamorous.

I've heard of this editorial, it's gorgeous, so inspiring. But the story of the French lady is absolutely amazing! I can't even think of being the man who discovered the apartment, it must have been overwhelming!
