What is interior designer Athena Calderone’s number one decorating rule?

“Never follow any rules! I am all about mixing and contrasting elements. I think a room should never strike just one note. I love combining polarizing qualities and using elements that seem like they shouldn’t work, but do. I think it creates a tension that brings intrigue and curiosity to a space. So, a clean environment with eclectic oddities, luxurious textures next to raw ones, old pieces with new ones, that’s what gives a room character and depth.”Β 

Her ‘don’t follow any rules’ approach is echoed not just tthroughout her beautiful Brooklyn home but in no-joke wardrobe, more of which is after the jump!
