Cloth: Tell us about a typical day in your life?

Brynn: Right now my days have been anything but typical. My office can be virtually anywhere, if I am not on-set.  On treasured days in my home office, I like to start off with a spot of tea, do research and develop features online and then work diligently on projects until around 5 p.m. If I'm working on location, my schedule can get hectic. It's hard to carve out down time to create.  I've been reading this wonderful book called "Daily Rituals" by Mason Currey which gives me good ideas. The book features creative people and how these past and present greats have found time to do their best work. I am inspired! 

Cloth: Where do you draw your inspiration for your aesthetic?

Brynn: I draw inspiration from everything! - From the runway to the laundry room, inspiration can come from any place. I find this can be the most fun part about it. Everyone should be on the lookout for ideas from family, heritage, home, surroundings, nature, friends and even the most unusual and, sometimes, difficult situations!  

Cloth What are your three favorite things about living in New York City ?  

Brynn: The Food: My favorite restaurants are Palma & Extra Virgin (also Papa Johns...a guilty pleasure)
The Energy: I love how everyone has this drive to move forward.
The People: Some of the most genuine & interesting souls in the world reside here. 

Cloth: Tell us about your blog name and how you got into blogging?

Brynn: I needed an outlet for my creative juices. Blogging seemed like the perfect solution. My blog name comes from my middle name, which is my beautiful grandmother's maiden name. Grandma Beth Elliott was vibrant,colorful and stylish.  -Oh, how I wish she could see my blog today! She would love it! Blogging is a personal journey for me. I love interacting with my viewers and creative minds in the industry. I love hearing their stories. I feel  this furthers my own story in a rich, fulfilling way. 

My work with Being Elliott focuses on telling others about the amazing world of fashion and design, as well as the joy and artistic pleasure found in ordinary things.  I want to give my readers inspiration and a smile every day. I hope my viewers can sit back and read my blog when they are looking for an outlet for inspiration and self expression.

Cloth: Do you have any upcoming projects you would like to share?

Brynn: Yes, of course! My husband, Aaron Lee Craig, is a gifted and highly creative film director and producer. I recently collaborated on a film with Aaron and his company, We are Films, that is premiering January 20 at the Harvey Theater in Brooklyn. The film is called "Round-Up" and is a project curated by the very talented musician Sufjan Stevens. 

I was so blessed to contribute as the stylist for the project. It was such an amazing creative process to be a part of. I loved seeing the finished product come together! "Round-Up" will be featured at  the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) from Jan 20-25 at the Harvey Theater.
