Overview

In this sumptuous book, Alberto Pinto excels at creating a perfect harmony of volume and space by bringing fresh inspiration to established design principles. He assembles an unprecedented range of styles by merging his client’s tastes with his own flair for creativity. 

With an unobstructed view of a white sandy beach and shimmering turquoise water, a sprawling apartment in the exclusive Ipanema enclave of Rio de Janeiro is decorated in subdued earth tones, punctuated by animal prints and vibrant works of modern art. The interior of a classical orientalist residence in Kuwait reveals elaborate 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 and a home in Santa Rita, as well as grand yachts and private jets. 

Pinto’s Parisian workshop, where his exceptional furniture and tableware can be purchased, is also featured.
