Using curiosity as a guiding principle, interior designer, author, and creative director, Athena Calderone seeks to amplify the quiet connectivity between objects to craft her visual chemistry. Her design practice is built upon the ethos that every project embraces the unexpected, replacing symmetry with spontaneous opposition to curate elevated, nuanced, and soulful homes. Athena’s process is defined by an innate yearning for emotion and experimentation, seeking both tension and restraint to bring the inarticulate to life. By engaging in this hidden dialogue, Athena offers a unique lens on the aesthetic world around us.

Having seen countless properties through complete rehabilitation, she sees through challenges and offers possibilities. Athena’s signature is to define great bones, which are continuously energized into new compositions with a collection of meaningful, artisan-crafted pieces that can be restyled with the seasons. She is an expert at balancing both permanence and evolution.

This creative doctrine is at the essence of her multidisciplinary approach that spans interior design, food, entertaining, creative direction, writing, and most recently product development. Athena is the best-selling author of design tome Live Beautiful and the James Beard award-winning cookbook Cook Beautiful, both published by Abrams. She has been featured in Vogue, Architectural Digest, The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Vanity Fair, Harper’s Bazaar, InStyle, Elle Decor and New York Magazine. As an internationally recognized tastemaker, Athena has graced the covers of Vogue Living, Architectural Digest Spain and Living Etc.

Client Experience
"My consultation with Athena exceeded my expectations. She had clearly reviewed the materials I provided beforehand and made sure to maximize every minute of our time. She quickly diagnosed the space and understood the "look" I was hoping to achieve. She provided concrete suggestions, resources, tips, and tricks and gave me the confidence to move forward with the design. Thank you, thank you, Athena, and The Expert. This is a fantastic platform."
