Interior designer Alessandra Branca circles the globe working for clients, but also to find glam goods that you won't see in every chic retail environment. She also makes things her own in a signature way, often having things made in her go-to red and white or red and black ticking stripe. You know I love her interior design, charity event tablesettings and overall spunky effervescent personality. Everything she does she takes on with gusto and total creative genius. A website redesign means larger images and the addition of The Scoop, a blog where Alessandra shares her favorite things and what she is up to at the moment. The chance to scoop up some wonderful finds in her Shop Branca sale is now, so visit her site to see the full assortment. Her pretty pieces make great hostess gifts and the furniture you will hold onto forever. Here are some favorite finds that I have long coveted:
Chic Chauffeuses in a striped floral print
Lavender and Yellow Single Bloom Flower in painted porcelain with tole stem and leaf in a clear glass pot.
Yellow and Pink Single Bloom Flower from France is made of a painted porcelain flower with tole stem and leaves in a terra cotta pot. I collect these and can never have too many.
Carved Wood Serving Tray in ebony wood with a lucite base
Mini Hurricane with Set of 19 Candles are prettier than your average low circular votive that often burn out mid-party.
