OK, Alessandra Branca is based in Chicago, but she is Italian-born and brings an Italian old-world touch to her designs, and therefore she is one of my global inspiration designers. Plus I'm a big fan. Just take a look at some of her work and notice the high ceilings, intricate mouldings, large-scale windows and doors, natural elements, ornate furnishings, loads of colour and prints, classic wallpaper patterns, and use of rich textures and textiles. Brilliant!
