An exquisite element joins the spaces that already make up Palazzo Avino: The Pink Closet. The boutique stands a few yards from the hotel entrance and access is through a store window looking on to the street.
“The Pink Closet comes into being as a small piece of architecture which encloses and harmonizes different colours, materials and textures, so that visitors, from the moment they cross the threshold, can enjoy an immerse visual and tactile experience. It is a project that aims to be a hymn to beauty, in all its forms, that could only take shape in the extraordinary setting of Palazzo Avino.”

In a setting of dusty pink which characterises the walls and the high ceilings with a soaring cross vault, on the floor inlaid polychromatic marble stands out, recreating the changing shades of the seabed. Transparencies and reflecting surfaces of antiqued mirrors pervade the space and some accessories to recall the surface of the sea, while the walls are partially covered in enamelled ceramic shells in a mixture of shades of pale green and pink, blending on to the walls until they disappear.
The space, filled with original shapes and exquisite details, discreetly reveals showcases with wonders, small chairs and furniture with delicate volumes designed for the occasion, while the fitting room is a soft and padded niche, covered in decorated carpet.
