Alessandra Branca Designer Visions Bedrooms

At an enviable 4,800 square feet with three bedrooms, the Alessandra Branca Designer Visions duplex would have been a game changer for many of us who exiled the city seeking more space for our growing families. While the public spaces are convivial and open for shared family living and entertaining, the bedrooms are havens of cocooned coziness. The master is a sophisticated sanctuary enveloped by one of my favorite fabrics in her new Schumacher collection, the acid green Anna Damask. A modern take on timeless elegance, it is a textured tumbled linen that is the essence of spring.

In the morning, the bedroom feels fresh and invigorating and in the evening glows with a sexy yin yang of the luxurious damask tempered by the handsome upholstered furniture in gray velvet and wool from Schumacher.

The play of the 18th century chair against the pattern of the damask is enlivened by the pop of the Moore & Giles pistachio patent leather that is so quintessential Alessandra.

Each element adds a glamorous touch as in the perfect pairing of a giltwood Jansen lamp on the reflective antique mirror of the Arteriors side table.

Alessandra’s clients have an older son away at school so his room does double duty as a guest room. Deep blue lacquer walls contrast with an almost plaster like flat finish of the trim, giving it an updated feel. A small seating niche assures guests have a place to relax on their own.

The red white and blue color scheme feels fresh and festive with the interplay of antiques, new upholstered pieces in Alessandra’s Schumacher fabrics and great accessories and art, all effortlessly coordinated.

Thoughtfully chosen and placed accessories add charm and humor.

The 17 year old daughter received a bedroom she could continue to grow into. With a mix of the masculine taupe and feminine fuschia, it is a marvelous melange of sophisticated antiques and youthful exuberance. The bed from Bunny Mellon’s collection, purchased several years ago from David Duncan, was the perfect fit. It just proves, buy what you love and it always finds its proper place!

And I like that the accoutrements are pretty in pink with wonderful textures (love the velvet shade) and interesting subjects.
