Alberto Pinto. World Interiors
An invitation to escape the everydayto explore the world of Alberto Pinto where elegance, refinement, and luxury combine with his eclectic style to create innovative and original interiors. This sumptuous and richly illustrated book features celebrated designer Alberto Pintos most recent interiors. Bringing fresh inspiration to established design principles, Pinto excels at creating a perfect harmony of volume and space. In Alberto Pinto: Horizons, the designer brings together an unprecedented range of styles; he continues to defy ascribed categories and dismiss common preconceptions by translating his own style into each interior, according to the site, his clients tastes, and his own flair for creativity. With an unobstructed view of the white sand beach and turquoise water, a sprawling apartment in the exclusive Ipanema enclave of Rio de Janiero is decorated in subdued sand tones, punctuated by animal prints and vibrant works of modern art. The interior of a classical, orientalist residence in Kuwait reveals elaborate detail in the marble, tile, and wood details, while more modern spaces are furnished predominantly in black and white with judiciously-placed accents in red. The details in a Monaco apartment subtly remind us that the home is perched above the Mediterranean Sea, while an ornate white and blue residence in New York is distinctly European in its rich use of antique furniture, ceramics, and ornate moldings. Other striking and sublime spaces include a palace in Riyadh, a home in Santa Rita, as well as grand yachts and private jets. Pintos own workshop in Paris, where his exceptional furniture and tableware can be purchased, is also featured.
