Having recently relocated from New York with his wife Nicoletta Santoro, their new apartment in Milan is, in a sense, a homecoming

Here. From this angle. Look. You see? To have a full view of the open living room with the light pouring in, you have to be exactly at this point. It’s fantastic! Phenomenal!” Ask photographer Max Vadukul to show you his apartment, and this is the result. The previously New York-based Vadukul just moved to Milan, into this bright and airy apartment that has a history for him and his wife. “She wanted to return to Italy and to her family home. So when her mother passed away, and she inherited the space together with her brother, we took the decision.”

Born 59 years ago, to an Indian family in Nairobi, Vadukul moved to London as a teenager. Soon, his thriving career began taking him around the world, with his wife, stylist Nicoletta Santoro, who had previously worked at Italian Vogue and had been the international fashion director at large for Vogue China. “Nicoletta and I had been living in New York for about 23 years. My twin children, Alex and Eloise, who are 30, still live there,” Vadukul explains. While both Vadukul and Santoro have a robust sense of style, they decided to work with architects Ariela Goggi and Fiorenza Stringa, who turned the 1970sstyle, 200-square-metre apartment into an honest, warm space filled with light and linear silhouettes.
