Born and raised in Italy, Alessandra Branca grew up believing classical beauty is meant to be intertwined with everyday life. Her eclectic, colorful work fuses the workmanship of a couturier with energy and practicality in all she designs. Her book, New Classic Interiors, was published in 2009.
“Take the classics and give them a twist.” Alessandra Branca has lived by this mantra for the past twenty-five years, and it is that tenet – and her eye for detail and color – that has made her one of the top tastemakers in the field of interior design today.
Alessandra’s talents have garnered attention well beyond familial lines or even the Windy City – the work she has done on her own houses in Chicago, Rome, Harbor Island, and New York – as well as those for clients around the world – have caught the eye of industry bibles such as House Beautiful and Elle Décor. She is one of a rarefied few that has earned the title of “master class” designer from the former and has been featured yearly since 2011 on the latter’s prestigious “A-List.” In a further showing of admiration for the designer, House Beautiful has tapped Alessandra (who frequently lectures at standing room only events), along with a short list of other design icons, including Charlotte Moss and Bunny Williams, to answer style questions for the magazine.
Marked by various cultural influences since his early childhood, Alberto Pinto, a legendary figure in the world of decoration and interior design, built his great work upon the mingling of cultures, the eclectic and his relentless quest for the exceptional.
After having studied at the Ecole du Louvre in Paris, Alberto Pinto set off for New York City where he created a photo agency specialized in architecture and decoration.
During several years Alberto developed his taste for interior design, notably when he had the chance to do photo shoots for the press group Condé Nast and in particular for the magazine House & Gardens, in Mexico working alongside architect Luis Baragan where he discovered the sense of volume and the power of color, in Italy where he deepened his understanding of design, in England alongside the talented interior designer David Hicks and again during his travels to India.
At the end of the ‘60s, Alberto Pinto, took upon himself personally to design the interior of his own NYC apartment and following the rush of requests to do others, led him to create his interior design firm in Paris, where according to him you can still find to this day the most skillful and talented artisans and craftsmen.
Following Alberto’s passing in 2012, his sister Linda, having always worked at his side, naturally took over the management of Alberto Pinto Interior Design.
It is with the same passion, energy and creativity she continues with her team in what has always made Alberto Pinto Interior Design successful: eclecticism, luxurious details and refinement.
The work of interior decorator Alex Papachristidis has been described as thoughtful, personal, sophisticated and eclectic. Having mastered the skill of fusing modern and traditional elements, editors, designers and clients’ alike use the word “fresh” to define his elegant approach, color palette, and the delightful details that make even a small room sizzle with style. Mario Buatta calls Alex Papachristidis “one of today’s eminent tastemakers. Known for arresting, elegant interiors that meld classical motifs with a modern perspective and sophisticated details.”
“The greatest pleasure for me,” says Papachristidis, “is when clients tell me that we’ve made their home into ‘an exquisite backdrop,’ a place to live, enjoy, and entertain.” Papachristidis believes that a great interior should be beautiful and usable, and each room in a home created for living.
In 2012, his own book The Age of Elegance: Interiors by Alex Papachristidis was published by Rizzoli, garnering praise from readers and critics alike and now in its third printing.
