That’s Not My Age Podcast episode 3: Michelle Ogundehin
Fans of Grand Designs House of the Year will recognise my latest podcast guest, Michelle Ogundehin (who regularly appears as an expert on the show). The writer, TV presenter and former Editor-in-Chief at Elle Decoration magazine is an authority on interiors, style and culture, and is currently writing a book on ‘the power of the home as a path to wellbeing’. Michelle’s love of colour, pattern and texture is beautifully displayed across her Instagram feed; and she will be appearing on our television screens soon as a judge on Project Interiors a new design show, on BBC2 and Netflix. Born in Manchester, she now lives in Brighton with her son and two boisterous Basset hounds Stanley and Henry.
The latest That’s Not My Age podcast discusses the importance of feeling happy and healthy at home, the joy of writing, journalism, social media and finding career success at every age. On the benefits of having an organised home, Michelle very wisely said, ‘Though I’m a passionate clutter-clearer, it’s not about being minimalist, there’s a huge difference between your things and stuff. Things are the narrative of your life, your story.’
This episode is slightly longer than normal just because I didn’t want to cut any of it!
Michelle Ogundehin is currently reading lots of non-fiction as research for the book she’s writing, including : The War of Art by Steven Pressfield and The Love for Imperfect Things by Haemin Sunim (a Buddhist monk, ‘It makes the most extraordinary good sense.’)
