When I received an invitation to enter the home of Athena Calderone, I immediately gasped. If you're not up to date with the interior design side of Instagram, allow me to explain who that is. Going by the social media nickname of @eyeswoon. Calderone has renovated and decorated her Brooklyn home into a picture-perfect destination. Her images have been reposted over and over again by design inspiration accounts, so, therefore, I'd call her space "viral."
She recently did a collaboration with Crate and Barrel, where she designed pieces that mirror the Modern European aesthetic that her home is known for. After seeing the way that every piece came together in synchronicity upon entering her home, I felt like I needed every item. In general, Calderone has found a way to fill her home with pieces that are quite on-trend but also timeless. I've rounded up the four home décor trends I'm thinking of buying into after admiring her home.
2. Abstract Shapes
If you're thinking about buying a traditional vase or coffee table, think again. According to every item in this house, asymmetrical and unique shapes are way cooler. I'm all about this trend because I think it's a very easy way to elevate your home and if you find the right vases to buy into, it won't be too pricey.
3. Jewel Tones
Adding a touch of color to your home always brings so much joy. I like to tell a color story by choosing different hues that complement each other. Calderone's home was filled with jewel-tone furniture pieces and home décor items. It's such a good color palette to dip into for fall and winter.
I have a hard time finding pillows that go together, so I love that Calderone has done the work for me.
I used to think that rattan was only meant for bohemian homes, but Calderone proved me wrong. The subtle addition of this wicker-like material made her bedroom feel a bit Grecian in all the right ways. This is a trend I definitely plan to try myself.
