Internationally celebrated for interiors with an inviting flair, Alessandra Branca has a classicism running through her veins—her signature style born of a Roman childhood, nurtured through 30 years of experience. Branca blends color, pattern and texture with an abundant sense of joy, a little wink, and the wisdom to make it all work in perfect harmony. Branca’s interiors are livable—designed to reflect and soften our complex worlds. What unifies her work is an overall sense of balance—and the practical magic she casts, turning houses into homes. The hallmark of any Branca interior is authenticity—reverence for quality craftsmanship, finely-tuned proportion and scale, rigorous attention to detail and a focus on the individual client. Everything contributes to the complete vision for a home designed to meet her clients’ needs, supporting and enhancing a well-lived life. Whether she’s creating a family beach house, a Park Avenue pied-à-terre, a sailboat or a private club, Alessandra delivers a distinct point of view—and a deep understanding of how we want to live, wherever we find ourselves.
