A while ago I wrote about Athena Calderone’s beautiful Brooklyn apartment. Well, just to make us all rather envious, she has a gorgeous home in Amagansett too! This Hamptons home is a retreat for Athena and her family and has a lovely laid back feel to it. With plenty of decorative objects collected on travels, the home is eclectic and full of stories. I love all the raw materials that have been used, especially the rope ceilings, such a clever effect.
I have a no-rules approach to design – embracing that unexpected mix of pairing the old and new, high and low, modern and traditional, grit and glamour! It’s all about the mix and it’s what creates intrigue and curiosity in a space.
You can see more over on Athena’s blog, Eye swoon.
