Giorgio Armani At Home In The Swiss Alps.

My husband referred me to these photos of the Swiss home of Giorgio Armani… I decided to post it, because while the furnishing are not particularly what I would do, the architecture and structure of this house amazed me…

The exterior of the house is covered with traditional scratch-work decoration called sgraffito.

Armani used his own design team for the project. This part of the house is a converted barn. 

The house was nicknamed the “Polar Bear House” by its previous owner and coincidentially, Armani was gifted that stuffed bear. The walls are called marmorino veneziano, which is a plaster treatment that mimics limestone.

The kitchen is different from anything Ive ever seen before. 

Japanese inspired staircase. Magnificent. 

The Master bedroom… There is something I love about that bed and the drapery in that window’s alcove. 

The Spa

Forget about every type of excess and concentrate on elegance achieved through simple lines. Beauty must be consistently linked to functionality, because wherever one is living, it should be a place where you feel totally at ease.” – Giorgi Armani

  1. The exterior design is fabulous; the interior is leaving me a bit cold though!

  2. Surprised by how much I dislike this. I agree with Karena…the house has zero personality. It looks like a showroom waiting room or a hotel or something. I can’t help but think of Aerin Lauder’s Aspen house as a comparison, and her place blows this one out of the water. C’mon, Giorgio…step up your game!
