Distinguished swimmingpool at decorator Alessandra Branca's Bahamas getaway

While surfing today on internet I found this beautiful swimmingpool located at the Bahamas. It's the getaway from Chicago-based decorator Alessandra Branca. Chinese Chippendale–style railings and a 40-foot-long pool distinguish this Harbour Island retreat. The windows and glazed doors throughout the compound, named Highlowe, are by Andersen Windows. The decorator blends natural elements, chinoiserie details and strategic splashes of vibrant color at her impeccably chic Bahamas getaway. Alessandra is widely known for fusing the chic workmanship of a couturier with energy and practicality in all she designs.
