Elements of Living

Former interior design mag, Elements of Living, featured a monthly column —Design With Soul— that I wrote in “as told to” style for Clodagh, an Irish-born, NY-based interior designer whose work is highly regarded for its earthy, holistic approach using local artisans and renewable or reclaimed materials.

Clodagh and I would talk, usually while she was in a car on her way to one airport or another. Later, in her voice, I’d write a piece on the subject of our conversation. We got on brilliantly and it was a lot of fun till the magazine was abruptly shuttered in 2006.
