Learn How To Live Beautifully With This Designer’s New Book

It’s fair to say that designer Athena Calderone is winning, on every domestic front. The bestselling cookbook author is releasing her first decor book, Live Beautiful, this spring, and it includes the stunning renovation of her Cobble Hill townhouse in Brooklyn, which launched a thousand Pinterest boards. In her new tome, she was granted access to the homes of some pretty stylish peers, such as fashion designer Jenna Lyons, designer Pam Shamshiri and Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent.

Athena explores the inspiration behind their design journey and breaks down the details of each room to show why a space works. She offers practical tips on how to bring these elevated elements into your own home, and opens the doors to two of her own residences to give readers insight into her personal design process. Let’s take a look!
