Athena Calderone

Eye Swoon

The lovely Athena Calderone makes all things aesthetically appealing. With both her interior design firm Rawlins Calderone Design, as well as her beautiful blog Eye Swoon, the former model is the kind of tastemaker we like to cover here at The New Potato. Taking a turn in her gorgeous Dumbo apartment – a space that inspired us to us go back to Manhattan and look up Dumbo real estate options – we couldn’t help but snap a few extra shots of Calderone and her enviable space. The interior designer also took us through all her new favorites in our column The New, New Potato. After all, who better than to ask what’s new than one of the freshest faces in the fashion, food and design industries?

Your new favorite restaurant…

New…Battersby. It’s not new, but Franny’s in Brooklyn. L’Apicio.

What’s your new favorite brunch spot?  

I love the breakfast at Café Mogador - I’m a huge fan of Middle Eastern food. Buvette is beyond yummy too!

Which are good for people watching?

Roberta’s and The Smile.


Some of your favorite new restaurants for the aesthetic…

Reynards at the Wythe Hotel…swoon. IsaNoma (I love simple Scandenevian design),  The Dutch and Rosemary’s.

The color scheme you just became obsessed with…

The colors of the sunset and horizon at dusk…midnight blues, dusty blues, greens, pinks, and purple hues.

The kitchen tool you just discovered…

I can’t live without my lemon zester or mandolin. Oh, and my global knives…I’m a freak about my knives!
