FOREVER—it's a loaded word, right? @tiffanyandco asked me to celebrate the Paloma’s
Graffiti collection by defining the personal significance of this word. The first thing that sprung to my mind are memories—those moments in our lives we hold so precious. The forever tidbits
from our past and present that linger in our hearts and mind—cumulatively filling us up with love
and joy and carrying us into our future. . I chose to shoot here at @altroparadiso because it is not only a place of culinary inspiration for
me, but it is also a place that I gather with my family often—where we come to celebrate, laugh,
talk, connect, break bread and build our forever memories. Gathering for a meal represents so
much to me, to all of us really, whether we can articulate it or not. Sitting at a table to share a
meal brings us to a place of such purity and openness, likely because it conjures significant
memories of being taken care of as a child, and to a place of joy and nurturing at our core. . Memories are forever. Family is forever. Inspiration will forever inform our choices. The energy
we put forth into the world will forever impact our own lives, the lives of those we love, to those
in our communities and to nature. And perhaps most importantly, loving and honoring ourselves
is FOREVER. #PalomasGraffiti . Wearing @rosie_assoulin | photo: @renellaice

A post shared by Athena Calderone (@eyeswoon) on is covering food, entertaining, fashion and lifestyle, a website to get you inspired to lead a healthy lifestyle.

Athena wrote a book – “Cook Beautiful”.

Athena got married when she was 23 and had her first child at 26. After giving birth to her son, she found herself being a homemaker.

“I had a lot of creativity that I couldn’t quite figure out where to place, but at the same time I was filled with so much love and happiness through my family.”

First she started expressing herself through food as part of her creativity, then eventually she started inviting people over to her home, eventually becoming a pro in home entertaining.

Athena is married to a DJ and music producer – Victor Calderone.

The family room is not only the sexiest room in the house, it is also where we gather most as a family. It functions as a TV room, library, and musical hub as it houses @vcalderone’s vinyl collection. A significant departure stylistically compared to the rest of the home, it’s a space that I initially intended to be crisp and white but changed direction once the bespoke @studiogiancarlovalle sofa came into play. Rich and saturated hues take center stage here but the boldness is counterbalanced as you are enveloped in the cozy suede-like texture of the plaster walls that wrap onto the ceiling — beautifully crafted by @kampstudios.

The portal that leads to my master bathroom serves no functional purpose so I knew I needed to make a visual statement. I became obsessed with Grecian marble pillars and was attracted to the repetition of shallow grooves running vertically along their surface. I shared the idea of using the ancient fluted technique to wrap up the walls, onto the ceiling and down the opposite wall with @kampstudios. Having worked with Kim and Amy for 15+ years for plaster work, we were all excited to navigate and execute the hand trawled plaster wall finish. The result is dramatic as it perfectly frames the bathtub and arched wall niche beyond and as you pass through the space there is almost a calming rhythmic quality. Guys — this work was crazy laborious to build up the plaster by hand and with extreme precision to get each 2” concave fluted recess exact and precise. So 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 to @kampstudios — I adore you both, you are true artisans. Thank you! . As seen in the November issue of @archdigest — photograph by @gievesanderson styled by @colinking
