CHERRY BOMBE 100:
Athena Calderone believes beauty stems from self-expression—and that self-expression can mean giving yourself license to be more than one thing. As an interior designer, home chef, and entertaining expert, Athena created a unified voice for her pursuits in EyeSwoon. And just as the site is marked by a coalescence of divergent influences, so is Athena’s aesthetic. Her ability to juxtapose contrasting styles, along with her eye for the sophisticated and the unusual, quickly garnered a devoted following for the site. Athena’s work has been featured in Elle Decor, Harper’s Bazaar, Architectural Digest, Martha Stewart, Food & Wine, and The New York Times and has been syndicated in Vogue, Food52, Domaine, and Bon Appétit.
