Leave it to interior designer Alessandra Branca to create not only the most stunning interiors in the world, but to entertain in them as well. During the Christmas season, Branca decorates with live greenery and roses. When entertaining guests, she creates delicious and beautiful Italian dishes and desserts that she serves using her collection of lovely everyday china and handblown glass.

The Manhattan Pied-A-Terre that Branca shares with her husband, family and friends is beautifully designed using vermillion, cream, and black. The living room is divided into several seating spaces, and there is a library for meeting with clients. The small bedroom was once a dressing room.

Since vermillion is my favorite color, I consider this an especially beautiful home. ENJOY!

The dining nook with the settee. I can very well see myself sitting right there. VERY inviting. And not contrived. Just lovely. Like it extra because the lamp shade is not straight. I need to see life in homes!

Happy new week to you Ms. Splendid!

Such gorgeous rooms, Teresa! I especially love their eating area. I like when a bench/built in is mixed with chairs. She has a true knack for holiday decor! xoxo
