"I wanted people to walk in and immediately feel disarmed," says Alessandra. "It’s meant to make you smile and to inspire."
The palette is pure Alessandra—with a dash of verve. Traditional delft blue meets vivid raspberry and acid green. Exotic tribal textiles mingle with hunting-lodge plaids. Affordable pieces mix with "It’s-how-much?" one-off finds. Antiques hold court with state-of-the-art contemporary pieces.
"We live in a world where everything seems to be made by the thousands. Things should be special—unique. We try to offer those things here, and to create a space that is home-felt," notes the designer.
