Antonio Martinelli’s pictures captured the grandeur of India’s palaces, showing us why these spaces are truly some of the most beautiful homes in India.

Manolo Yllera, on the other hand, showcased his photographs of contemporary international homes with personalities that ranged from eclectic to absolutely austere.

Both, Martinelli’s and Yllera’s work on contemporary Indian homes and palaces will also be featured in the first issue of Architectural Digest India.
