Designer Visions - Alessandra Branca for Elle Decor - Part 2

Continuing from the living areas of the apartment designed by Alessandra Branca for Elle Decor from yesterday, today we explore the bedrooms and bathrooms of this stunning apartment as we continue the tour.

We begin in the damask upholstered Master Suite, with it's walls and drapery panels all in this fresh acid green "Anna Damask" which is part of Alessandra's new line of fabrics for Schumacher.

(Attributed to Jansen France, ca. 1940), from Atelier Branca

A Michael Taylor Canopy Bed in Carapace Finish with Upholstered Headboard takes advantage of the high ceilings and wide open space, anchoring the room.

A comfortable living space, in front of the bed with a set of 2 "smoke" velvet upholstered Bergeres and Matching Canapé would be a wonderful place to sit and read your favorite magazine or book.. or perhaps even a little late night conversation
√† deux. 

Another example of pattern play, as Alessandra uses the backdrop of the damask walls, for her Hand-Painted French Silk Panels proving that pattern upon pattern works wonders in every room!

But I think I might have a favorite in this room, and that would be the pair of Louis XVI Grey Painted Oval Back Side Chairs in which have been upholstered in Pistachio Domino Patent Leather by Moore & Giles.. I think they are divine!

The spacious bathrooms are all beautifully designed, in marbles, granite and metallic accents...

and also take advantage of the spanning views from each of the many bathrooms throughout the duplex.

The first bedroom is framed with a central canopy bed with a velvet base and "L’Indienne" fabric coverlet. The striking Pink Cameroon hangs central within the white outline of the frame, and against the Coachman’s Cape® Aura rich walls. It's such a warm color combination.

Moore; Upholstered in Gainsborough Velvet Fabric in Pewter with Kenmare Linen Plain Fabric Piping in White by Schumacher, and Cambridge Strie Braid Trim in White by Samuel & SonsPimento Grey Diamond Sisal Area Rug with Grey Linen Binding by Studio Four NYC with Alessandra's Pink Cowhide Rug.

Once again, old meets new, with a Louis XVI fauteuil from David Duncan Antiques covered in Branca for Schumacher "Elizabeth" Chintz in Rouge/Grey all loosely placed on the Pimento Grey Diamond Sisal Area Rug with Grey Linen Binding by Studio Four NYC and the final layer with Alessandra's Pink Cowhide Rug.
It's layer upon layer of fun in this room!

As in yesterday's post on the living areas, Branca has once again created gorgeous window treatments in every bedroom. Here in L’Indienne fabric she pairs it with Alexander Tartan Fabric in Fuchsia also by Branca for Schumacher.

Walls in High Gloss Twilight Advance by Benjamin Moore act as great backdrop in this second bedroom, for the Headboard in Prussian Blue/Rouge Melograno Fabric by Branca for Schumacher and with the collection of four Plaster Framed French antique 19c. intaglio on mirrored backs that hang overhead. 

The Prussian Blue/Rouge Melograno fabirc repeats on the drapery panels, and bedskirt and is the star of the room.

This completes the tour of Alessandra Branca's design, for Elle Decor. Please visit tomorrow, where I will continue on through the apartments in the Walker Tower, one of Chelsea's most beautifully newly converted condominium, by interior designers ~ Carlos Aparicio for Veranda and Jamie Drake for House Beautiful.
