A Platinum Circle past honoree and recipient of the Manfred Steinfeld Award for Humanitarianism, Clodagh passionately believes that good design supports well-being and that it can transform people’s lives. She feels that clutter can undermine serenity, but minimalism should not be self denying. She leaves nothing extraneous or superfluous, and all irritants are designed out. Yet, all the essentials are included; textured, sensuous and warm. The experience of entering a Clodagh designed space is one of blissful serenity.
Her award winning portfolio spans over 24 countries and includes hotels, luxury spas, healthcare facilities, residential, branding, fashion, home and hospitality products. Clodagh creates life-enhancing environments and is committed to sustainability and authenticity in materials.
A believer in the tenets of integrative medicine which addresses the entire human body and psyche, Clodagh applies a broad spectrum of modalities that promote wellness by addressing human issues. As a pioneer in the use of Feng Shui in her designs, she joyfully embraces both ancient and cutting edge methods. The use of chromotherapy, biophilia, intelligent materials and natural elements enrich her projects with unmistakable warmth and beauty that appeals to all the senses.
She was inducted into the Interior Design Hall of Fame, Architectural Digest has named her among the Top 100 Designers in the World, The Robb Report has put her in their Top 40 Interior Designers in the World, Traditional Home magazine calls her one of the Top Twenty Design Icons.
Clodagh truly believes in giving back to the world’s communities. An advocate for education and well-being, she tirelessly supports organizations fostering education in the developing world, including the Thorn Tree Project, whose mission is to help educate the children of nomadic families in northeastern Samburu.
