Allegra Muzzillo is a shelter writer, storeowner, and interior designer based in Brooklyn, NY.
The collecting bug bit Allegra at a young age: Her mother, a working artist and former antiques dealer, encouraged such interests, as Allegra traveled to Brimfield, estate sales, and antiques shows, always searching for her next treasure.
Allegra’s other passions are home design and writing: A move to NYC in 1999 marked the start of her 18+ year career as a writer and editor for renowned interiors publications, such as 1stDibs, Lonny, This Old House, Cottages & Gardens, and New England Home.
In 2016, Allegra parlayed her love for vintage pieces and home design by opening You & Yours Fine Vintage (Y&YFV) a Brooklyn shop offering furniture, décor, and lighting from the Mid Century through the 1970s eras. While serving to showcase Allegra’s curatorial and design prowess, Y&YFV’s brick-and-mortar location is also a space where she conducts design consultations.
In January 2017, Allegra joined the full-service interior design company, Homepolish, as a designer specializing in residential projects of all budgets and tastes. When she’s not writing or designing, she’s busy gut-renovating her landmarked home in Brooklyn, NY. Allegra lives with her husband, Michael, and their two rascally cats, Wolfie and Georgi.
