What's Been Happening Lately
Taking in Brooklyn 's new buildings and beautiful, historic homes . . . going to interior design events . . . watching the Marathon right outside my living room window. I feel so lucky to live in Manhattan. Used to think it wasn't the Center of the Universe, but now I think it just might be.

A freelance writer for many years -- especially interior design, but truly "if it's beautiful I write about it" meaning jewelry, fashion, real estate, travel, and food -- "Designers Here and There" is my 3rd book, but the first that is an elegant, hardcover coffe table book on par with those of the finest in the biz.
Designer Clodagh's take on "Designers Here and There"
" There is nothing more fascinating than getting a peek into the homes of others. When this group of top designers allowed Michele Keith to open the door not only to their urban dwellings but also to their second homes, we were given an opportunity for aspirational voyeurism that is unique. Grab the book, cast yourself on a sofa and go on one of the most revealing designer tours of all, the designers' own homes."
