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.
