Design 5 Swoon Worthy Things:

Athena Calderone

I love getting new ideas and inspiration from friends and the people I admire, which is why I often ask fellow creatives the 5 things they are currently swooning over for the home.  As an introduction to the first 5 SWOON WORTHY THINGS feature, I have recapped the 5 decor items I am currently coveting. Stay swooned for this bi-monthy feature!

NAME : Athena Calderone

PROFESSION :  Interior Designer, lover of food, lifestyle editor of Eye-Swoon.com

HOME BASE : Dumbo Brooklyn & Amagansett

ENDLESSLY OBSESSED WITH creating beauty

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY :  don’t follow any rules, its all about the mix

YOUR DECOR STYLE IN 3 WORDS : minimal, eclectic and warm

DESIGN TREND YOU LOVE?  Dark Walls

ONE YOU WISH WOULD GO AWAY? White lacquer
