Allegra Muzzillo is a Brooklyn-based interior designer, entrepreneur, and design writer.
The collecting bug bit Allegra at a young age: Her mother, a working artist and former antiques dealer, encouraged such interests.
Allegra began traveling to Brimfield, estate sales, and antiques shows, always searching for treasures to add to her growing collections.
Allegra’s other passions are interior design and writing about it: A move to NYC in 1999 marked the start of her nearly 20-year career as a writer and editor.
Her work has been featured in renowned interiors publications, such as 1stDibs, Lonny, This Old House, Cottages & Gardens, and New England Home. Allegra continues to contribute customized content to well-known editorial publications and digital platforms.
In 2016, Allegra parlayed her love for collecting vintage pieces and designing interiors by opening a 500sq ft shop in Brooklyn, NYC, called You & Yours Fine Vintage (Y&YFV). Y&YFV offers furniture, décor, and lighting dating from the mid-century to the 1980s eras.
While serving to showcase Allegra’s curatorial eye and styling skills, Y&YFV’s brick-and-mortar location in Greenpoint is also the space where she conducts design consultations.
In March 2017, Allegra joined the full-service interior design company, Homepolish, as a designer specializing in residential projects of all budgets and tastes. One year later, she began earning her own clients and is currently accepting new interior design projects, both big and small.
Allegra is also in the final stages of gut-renovating her landmarked home in Brooklyn—and can't wait for the big reveal. Allegra lives with her husband, Michael, and their perfect fur babies, big Wolfie and small Georgi.
