cristina celestino bathes the pink closet boutique in soothing pastel pink

situated inside a historic dwelling perched on the cliffs of ravello, italy, the pink room by cristina celestino is an exclusive boutique bathed in pink. this color — symbol of the palazzo avino hotel where the store is located — and the sea, are the starting point for the project which follows a signature look developed specifically to establish a dialogue with the building and its surroundings.

the pink room boutique by cristina celestino stands a few meters from the hotel entrance and can be accessed through a store window that overlooks the street. inside, the visitor will feel like being inside a contemporary grotto, where high ceilings with a soaring cross vault envelop the space. on the floor, inlaid polychromatic marble stands out, recreating the changing shades of the seabed: from tones of aquamarine green to liberty green and to aegean pink.

the space is characterized by the finishes and materials which connote the architectonic elements and the furnishings, between smooth and textured surfaces. transparencies and reflecting antique mirrors pervade the space while some accessories recall the sea, like the wall, partially covered in enamelled ceramic shells in a mix of pale green and pink.

‘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,’ comments cristina celestino. ‘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.’
