Description

From celebrated design expert, interior designer, and creator of EyeSwoon, Athena Calderone, comes a look into how creatives decorate their spaces.

"This book is filled with her wisdom, insight, and direction on how to create and curate a space that will always feel like home." --Bobby Berk, star, Queer Eye

Beautiful design isn't just pleasant to look at; it improves the quality of our lives. In Live Beautiful, Athena Calderone 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.

This is, though, much more than simply a beautiful coffee table book filled with stunning images of beautifully designed homes. Calderone writes in her introduction, "As much as this book is about intimate creative portraits, it is also a practical deep dive, offering actionable ideas that will help you design your home. The inspiring photography here is accompanied by extractable tips on 'why the design works, ' the resources each home drew from, and teacherly insight to help you understand the principles at play."

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.
