Description

Beautiful design isn't just pleasant to look at; it improves the quality of our lives. It helps foster the traditions, rituals, and ceremonies we create in our homes. In Live Beautiful, the highly anticipated design book by Athena Calderone, the EyeSwoon creator taps into her network of interior decorators, fashion designers, and tastemakers to reveal how carefully crafted interiors come together. She also opens the doors to two of her own residences.
With each homeowner, Calderone explores the initial spark of inspiration that incited the design journey and the deeply personal objects, stories, and references that accompanied it. She then breaks down the details of the rooms-like layered textures and patterns, collected pieces, and customized vignettes-and offers helpful tips and advice on how to bring these elevated elements into your own space. Filled with gorgeous photography by Nicole Franzen, Live Beautiful is both a showpiece of exquisite design and a guide to creating a home that's unique and thoughtfully put together.

Review quote

"Athena's beautiful book is a testament to her incredible skill set. The true talent of a designer is to not just create a beautiful and functional space, but recognize something special and individual, based on those who will be living there. This is so true of Athena. Each space displayed in her book shows an innate understanding of the individual, and despite each being completely distinctive, Athena recognizes the beauty of the uniqueness. The more time I spend reading, the more I learn that there is no design rule book as to what something should be. Athena's book is a true exploration of what it can be."
--Naomi Watts
