Dream Home: Duplex in Dumbo

Spotted on Pinterest (courtesy of Rue Magazine). This dreamy duplex home located in Dumbo belongs to Athena Calderone. {Did you know Dumbo is an acronym for District Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass? It’s a neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York City}.

My hearts beats wildly when I see sky high ceilings like this.  Rue11

Concrete wall entry and that light fixture!


Giant artwork for a giant wall.


Check out that New York skyline above!


LOVE LOVE LOVE the eclectic pieces and the natural light in this room.


Serene white, blue and lavender bedroom.


Yellow gold finishes in the kitchen.

From Rue: “Athena’s home is filled with interesting artwork, accessories and textiles. The key to recreating something as fresh as her space is to treat every piece as art. Every single item should have a designed aesthetic to it, even down to small votives and items to place on stacked books. The appeal of her home, and good design in general, is that the space unfolds slowly, with new items that you didn’t notice the first time round”

Sound advice indeed! When can I move in?
