No stranger to spa design, Clodagh, whose projects include the reopened Six Senses Kaplankaya (Turkey) and Six Senses Douro Valley (Portugal), recently debuted Clodagh: Life-Enhancing Design (G Arts, 2018), which features stunning photographs of her work.
The book explores Clodagh’s design philosophies, which are made up of the four Cs: Contemplate, Cleanse, Clarify, and Create, and her thoughts on biogeometry, the pattern of natural systems; biophilia, the healing power of nature; chromatherapy; feng shui; and wabi-sabi, a Japanese aesthetic that embraces imperfection.
Known for her “life-enhancing minimalism,” Clodagh, a leader in sustainable design, shares the projects and ideals that have helped shape her life and career as one of the industry’s most sought-after designers. From her thoughts on color and the chakras to the role nostalgia plays in design, she shares how her conscious design choices are intended to deliver joy, wellness, and comfort. The book explores Clodagh beliefs that clutter undermines serenity but minimalism should not be self-denying, and how she balances these principles with her signature style.
