A member of the Interior Design Hall of Fame and one of the leading women in the field of hospitality design, Alexandra Champalimaud takes immense pride in her work. Whether she is restoring the legacy of grand dame hotels such as the New York Palace or creating brand-new properties such as Topping Rose House. “I am very rarely on an ego trip,” she says as she welcomes us into her Chelsea home, “it’s about how I can best bring to light a new building or an old one that requires new life, using all my knowledge.” Ms. Champalimaud recently moved to a bright and modern Chelsea space, which fittingly overlooks one of New York’s most iconic architectural landmarks, the IAC building by Frank Gehry.
