Interior Design | Places: Christian Dior’s New Flagship Store, London
Tuesday 21st June, 2016

Christian Dior has just unveiled its magnificent new flagship store on London’s iconic Bond Street. Four years in the making, the interior was designed by celebrated architect Peter Marino, whose portfolio of work already includes designs for most of the great names in luxury retailing.
Taking Monsieur Dior’s favourite colour palette of grey with touches of pink, Peter Marino has conceived a classically beautiful space decorated in a symphony of grey tones overlaid with contemporary touches such as the sculptural pieces by Tony Cragg and Rado Kirov.

She studied French and History of Art & Architecture in Trinity College in Dublin before moving to London to work first in publishing and then in Marketing & PR. After a move to Edinburgh, she decided to heed a creative urge which had been tugging at her sleeve for a number of years, and she retrained as an interior designer. While studying interior design, Louise discovered a love of pen and ink with watercolour illustration, which she now does alongside her interior design work. Louise runs her interior design company, Amalfi White Living, which offers her clients a fresh, elegant style, mixing vintage and modern pieces for a luxurious yet relaxed look. She dreams of renovating a white house by the sea.
