Athena Calderone's top home-decorating rule is to maximize the "mix" so that no single room hits just one note. Indeed, this idea emanates from everything the interior designer/culinary experimenter/Eye-Swoon editor-in-chief touches. From conception to photography and execution, every aspect of her website (which is a destination for all things visually flawless) is overseen by Calderone herself. Add to this picture-perfect design aesthetic which extends from her own BK pad to many high-profile clients, and a personal wardrobe that would make any fashion enthusiast, well, swoon
, and you've got one maximally busy, maximally inspiring New Yorker. Come tour one of our favorite homes yet, and get ready to be blown away by Calderone's mixed-up style.
