Peter Marino

I'm back! I'm feeling quite relieved now that the 2 big work deadlines are done with, got out of going to Beijing, had a long weekend to relax a bit, AND I've found a new apartment to move in to (more on that later). Phew! And now, back to blogging...

I've been loving neutral interiors with lots of clean lines lately, which is why I was so taken by the pics of New York based architect Peter Marino's projects. You may or may not know the name, and if you don't then I'm certain you will be familiar with some of his projects. He is the man behind some of the world's most famous luxury retail spaces. Hong Kong's Louis Vuitton store, Chanel in Tokyo, New York and Paris, Giorgio Armani in New York, Barney's in New York etc. etc. - and that's just the tip of the iceburg. He is also responsible for some incredibly chic residential spaces. Here are a few of my favorites from his website.

welcome back, suzie! looking forward to hearing about the new apartment. did you get higher ceilings? :)

mr. marino's work is very elegant, if a tad too beige for my personal tastes (i like a little "loud").

Hey M21 - no, unfortunately high ceilings are a bit of a rarity here...so I'm still searching. But I did find a bigger place for less rent in a bit of an overpriced market..so I can't complain too much! I might share some pics later...
