Athena Calderone's Brooklyn Penthouse Contemporary Glamorous & Chic

Fabulous interior designer shows us her the penthouse she shares with her husband DJ Victor Calderone.  Their penthouse overlooks the East River and features high, High, HIGH ceilings that are fully decorated with Athena's personal touches.  If we talk about Athena's way to success, well, she found her way to interior design after working with a friend, former Bergdorf Goodman store designer John Rawlings to decorate one of her her apartments. After this experience, she decided to follow her instincts and pursue her dream professionally. After she went to Parsons, her and Rawlings joint forces and created a design firm....everything is history after that! Her sensibility of fashion made her what she is today: FABULOUS!!!  Below you will see the picture she shared us, including her closet design (my favorite)! enjoy!
