My heart skipped a beat when these photos of Tom Ford’s Santa Fe ranch landed in my inbox courtesy of a very nice reader. These images, by photographer Guido Mocafico, were first featured in the December 2010/January 2011 issue of Vogue Paris. It was designed by Tadao Ando’s whose serene Japanese aesthetic makes a huge statement in the arid terrain of Santa Fe. The concrete walls, the lines, the light, the color. Its just. Stunning.
The 24,o00 acre ranch is a fully equipped equine facility and apparently Tom Ford is quite the cowboy. “If you spend time on our ranch or in the American West or anywhere in nature,” he said, “all of a sudden, all the things you worry about all the time fade away. That’s why one of the greatest problems with where we are culturally at this time is that we’ve all lost touch with the earth and that which is really important in the world.” I couldn’t agree more.
Behold the fantasy that is this ranch:
One day I will have something this good in my life.
