DREAM BROOKLYN ROW HOME

You know how there are just some people who are born with amazing talent. Well, Athena Calderone just so happens to be one of those amazing people. It seems that everything she touches turns to gold. It is appropriate that her life style brand is called EYE SWOON , she has a true visual talent. I have been following her since the beginning of  her career and have enjoyed seeing her blossom throughout the years. Athena has a cookbook ‘Cook Beautiful’ which I recommend checking-out. Every recipe that I have attempted from it has been met with nothing but high praise. A few years ago, she and her husband purchased a row home in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn NYC. For three years it was under construction and the Calderone’s just recently unveiled their masterpiece in Architectural Digest.  They enlisted the help of Architect Elizabeth Roberts to bring their dreams into fruition. Check it out!

SUMMER VIBES

Summer vibes seems suiting for me as of present. I recently graduated with my Master’s in Interior Architecture and I have been taking life easy ever since, at least for the summer. I am going to fully enjoy these summer vibes and then be back on the grind come Fall. I will be taking advantage of the weather, late mornings, tanning, spending time near water, traveling and completely relaxing. Not to say that I will not be working on design related projects but they will strictly be for personal progress, adding them to my portfolio. Wanting to improve on some skills and be prepared for interviews.

HOPE YOU ARE ENJOYING YOUR SUMMER!
