The Bald Mermaid

A Memoir

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


The inspiring memoir of interior designer Sheila Bridges, The Bald Mermaid: A Memoir comprises engaging and deeply personal vignettes that explore questions of identity, femininity, race, success, and what it really means to have it all. After receiving degrees from two prestigious universities, Bridges became very successful in her career as an interior designer, creating homes for high-
profile clients and even hosting her own television show. But when she lost her hair due to Alopecia, she lost it all: This is her story of coming to terms with what success and happiness mean to her, realizing the cost of independence, and understanding what it means to stay true to herself in the face of judgment, criticism, and expectation from family, friends, lovers, and strangers. Beautifully illustrated with personal photographs and images of Bridges’ interior designs, The Bald Mermaid is a delightfully candid, insightful, and often humorous narrative of Bridges’ ups and downs, and how she ultimately found balance and peace in her multi-layered life.
Sheila Bridges, named “America’s Best Interior Designer” by CNN and Time magazine, founded her own interior design firm in New York in 1994. She has been a regular contributor on NBC’s Today Show, hosted her own cable network television show, appeared on Oprah, and has been profiled in numerous national and international publications. She lives and works in Harlem, New York, and relaxes at her weekend home in the Hudson Valley, in upstate New York. The Bald Mermaid: A Memoir is her second book.
