Alessandra Branca Gives Us 5 Expert Tips On What To Invest In When Designing Your Home

Renowned for her classically beautiful interiors, designer Alessandra Branca knows a thing or two about investment pieces for the home. According to Branca, mixing high-end with lower-end items is what brings a space to life. “I love using vintage flea-market pieces in a chic space because they make it real and give it instant character,” she says. “Invest in your passions. If it is gardening or travel, allow those to come into your interiors and you will cherish them forever.” Whether it’s your first home or one of many, let Branca’s expert advice be your guide.
Splurge on High-Quality Upholstery “You will have your upholstery longer than any car,” says Branca. “I still have the first sofa I invested in, and it has been reupholstered a few times. Even after all of these years, it’s still everyone’s favorite place to nap!”

Hunt for Vintage Pieces
“A wonderful chest of drawers will follow you forever and be very practical, whether it’s from the 1940s or the 18th century,” says Branca, adding that the play of old and new is always a compelling aesthetic. “I always tell my clients to invest in a great mirror. You can use it anywhere, and it transitions from space to space.”
