This Is How a Park Avenue Apartment Is Transformed into a Color Wonderland by Gaetano Pesce
“Color is energy. Color can give us a better life.”
As the founder of Publicolor (a New York-based nonprofit organization that aims to improve education in youth by promoting an imaginative use of color in school buildings), Ruth Lande Shuman’s Park Avenue apartment may have been too ‘mundane’ to truly reflect herself – an interior palette that was oddly reminiscent of Cream of Wheat. However, that was before she met Italian architect and industrial designer Gaetano Pesce. Known for creating bold furniture from rags, moving blankets and resin-made household objects, Pesce transformed Shuman’s apartment into a vibrant wonderland that strongly reflects her position and personality. The Italian designer expressed that “an apartment is a portrait of a person,” and added, “Color is energy. Color can give us a better life.” Take a look at Shuman’s Pesce-heavy apartment in the gallery above.
