Fabulous Room Friday 12.04.15

I am still seeing red after yesterday’s In the Mood post, so I only thought it appropriate that the first “Fabulous Room” of the month should be swathed in crimson. Naturally, whenever I think of beautiful, red rooms, Alessandra Branca comes to mind. Alessandra works in many palettes, of course, but red is truly her signature and few do it as well as she does. One Kings Lane recently paid Alessandra a visit at her home in Chicago for a feature on her holiday hosting tips. I love that her beautiful dining room seemingly does double duty as a library. It makes the space feel so cozy and intimate. The striking red walls are the perfect backdrop for her beautiful Jansen dining chairs, 1950s French chandelier, and 1970s red and white abstract painting. Meanwhile, the graphic trim on the draperies emphasize the scale of the room and help to frame the space. The result is beautiful, chic, and ravishing in red.
