Athena Calderone beautifully documents the intersection of food, fashion and design on her lifestyle site EyeSwoon. The site started as a way for Calderone to document the redesign of her Amagansett, New York, home. As more people asked her for design advice and sources, it became a way to share her knowledge with others. It has now grown into a destination for recipes and entertaining advice as well. Here, she shares ideas for a stylish holiday table.
1. Incorporate something from nature.
Calderone added small bunches of greens and thistle to each place setting.
2. Embrace imperfection.
"I don't like structured centerpieces. I prefer drapey greens and tarnished candlesticks, which feel undone but still elevated."
