I’m sure you've seen them floating around by now – pics of Athena Calderone’s Brooklyn Penthouse courtesy of Harper's Bazaar. With its soaring ceilings and windows overlooking the East River, the architecture alone is enough to cause palpitations. Add Athena's unique approach to decorating this contemporary space, and you have pure magic. Eclectic, organic, modern, and glamorous—it all works.
Intrigued by Athena’s POV, I headed over to her blog, EyeSwoon, for a better sense of her style and sources of inspiration. The mood board for this design includes many images that I have posted on Sukio or elsewhere. She, too, is all about incorporating edge and mixing things up. "I’m always seeking that balance….a little bit of glam and a little bit of grit."
As you can tell by her super cute Peter Pilotto dress and decked out closet, Athena is a total fashionista. "I feel like I can't live without my Susie Homemaker side, baking and cooking, but I also can't live without fashion." I can dig it. Oh, and I’m diggin' those shoes, too.
