MINIMALIST CHIC Athena Calderone’s NYC Apt.

One thing I really enjoy about getting away for a few days is the opportunity to catch up on some “flipping” (a.k.a. magazines). No surprise, I had to stop in my tracks and pour through designer Athena Calderone’s Brooklyn Dumbo loft at the back of the latest Harper’s Bazaar. Between the rich woods, sleek concrete and glass, contemporary art, furs/animal hides/horns, and lots of shiny brass touches, I’m in my own personal “5 Pieces” heaven…


Fab, right???

I’m so all about this look right now!

Desiring an online space to explore well-rounded, inspired content in all topics she loves most, Erika created 'The E List' (formerly the Small Shop blog) in 2010. When not enjoying an “occasional" glass of wine and wanderlusting for even warmer climates, Erika can be found sharing laughs with friends and family, and trying her very best to keep up with her 6-year old daughter (yet failing miserably).

  1. I pinned almost every single one of these……I love anyone who loves a L. Adelman chandelier….and she has 2!!…love the pendants in the kitchen

  2. This apartment is amazing. Besides the stunning windows and beautiful staircase, my favorite thing in her apartment is that beautiful painting she has hanging behind the couch in the living room. That is right up my alley!

  3. Her apartment is amazing! I love all of the grays and that coffee table in her living room is just out of this world!


    PS Feel free to stop by my blog, I am hosting a giveaway of Skin Owl Organic Face Oils – they are amazing!

  4. You know I love this shiz and have been blogging and pinning on her for years. She is crazy talented and beautiful – hope your trip is going great!
