Alyssa Kapito, a New York-City interior designer, describes her aesthetic as classic, edited and artful.
The designer has created beautifully textured interiors for projects as varied as an Upper East Side pre-war apartment, a modern beach house in Bellport, and a family home in Beverlly Hills. Her distinctive style combines bright whites, warm neutrals, and subtle decorative elements for an effect that’s elegant without being formal and restrained without being anywhere near cold. Her rooms make you feel calm – like you could sit there for hours with a cocktail in one hand and a fabulous book in in the other, and Daily Design News wants you to know all about it!

Alyssa Kapito is known for her interiors’ clean lines and neutral palettes – but do not call her a minimalist. Instead, the New York City-based designer considers hear aesthetic a “minimalist take on traditionalism, in which editing is key to keep homes feeling fresh.” The Long Island-born Alyssa Kapito came from an art history background, however, since opening her eponymous firm in 2012, she has proven her natural gift lien in interior design. Just ask the 135,000 followers of her Instagram account, which was also praised by British Vogue and Elle Decor. Illustrating her two artistic pursuits, Alyssa Kapito selected her favourite pieces from Sotheby’s Contemporary Art Online auction (22 February – 7 March) and spoke to us about creating spaces featuring a cleansing palette that is far from plain.
She has been named one of the top “7 Designers Stars to Watch” and has also been named a “Rising Star” by both Traditional Home and New York Cottages and Gardens. In May of 2017, Alyssa Kapito Interiors was named one of the top 10 Instagram accounts to follow for Interior Design by Elle Decor and in July 2017 she was also named one of the top Instagram Accounts to follow by British Vogue.

“I love living rooms because you can break out of the box a little. In a bedroom you always need a bed, a dining room you always need a dining table and a kitchen has to be practical. A living room, on the ther hand, can really be however you want it to be. I have a daybed in the middle of my living room and I love it!” Said Alyssa Kapito, when asked about her favourite room of the house.
