Beautiful design isn’t just pleasant to look at; it improves the quality of our lives. In Live Beautiful, the highly anticipated design book by Athena Calderone, the EyeSwoon creator taps into her international 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 their design journey. She then breaks down the details of the rooms - like layered textures and patterns, collected pieces, and customized vignettes - and offers helpful tips 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 thoughtfully put together.
The interiors in this book are an exercise in creativity that is often difficult to articulate. In tracing the often winding journeys to home Calderone offers a window into the thought process behind design - how in the mingling of pieces, a dialogue begins, and the language of a room takes form. In Live Beautiful, Calderone amplifies these quieter moments because they are far louder than they seem. These are the choices that reflect individuality and shape the. alchemy in our homes. She then opens the doors to two of her own residences to give the readers insight into her own personal design process.
Live Beautiful is both a showpiece of exquisite design and a guide to creating a home that is as thoughtfully put together. as it is beautiful.
