Who else but Vogue would be allowed to shoot the interior of famed fashion photographer Mario Testino's Hollywood Hills abode? The images, and the accompanying article, written by Racked favorite Hamish Bowles, appear in the March issue of the mag (pictured). Testino decorated the Spanish style house himself with bits and pieces picked up on his world travels; per the article, "his living room is carpeted with a patchwork of Mauritanian leather–stitched straw mats and sheep-colored carpets latticed with giant black lozenges from the Middle Atlas, both found in Marrakech during downtime from a shoot." The photographer also reveals that, thanks to his job, he's only in one city for about two months a year—meaning this beautiful property sits empty most of the time.
