A child of Rome and the granddaughter of a Vatican Museum art historian, interior designer Alessandra Branca grew up among the finest classical art and architecture in the world. She learned early that even formal beauty was meant to be intermingled with everyday life, and that the well-lived life takes place not in stiff and somber surroundings, but in artful structures graced with a comfortable elegance and wit. Alessandra divides her time between New York, Rome, Harbour Island and Chicago where she founded her design firm in 1981. She has completed projects across the globe, including in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, London, and countless other locations. Awarded by House Beautiful as their first Master Class Designer and recently named as one of Elle Decor's A-list designers for the second year in a row her work continues to inspire those through confident, livable and ever-changing interiors.
