In the same way your affinity with a piece of art deepens upon learning the meaning behind it, so too does your connection to an interior when you discover the storytelling that’s woven into its design. This is how it felt when Athena first walked into the 1950s Cape Cod home of Robin Standefer and Stephen Alesch. The creative minds behind Roman and Williams and RW Guild married Montauk’s raw and earthy elements with an artfully collected and modern spirit. It is, as Athena writes in Live Beautiful, “deliberately considered yet so disarmingly casual.”
So, in honor of Live Beautiful’s one year anniversary, we’re diving into the archives to celebrate the beautiful homes and the people who live in them. Each week we will be sharing curated collages designed exclusively by each homeowner along with rapid-fire questions that didn’t make the book’s pages. We hope you will relish these very personal moments and be inspired to live beautiful in your own homes (and lives), too.
