A visit by Leo, Otto?s old friend and a successful playwright leads to an affair between he and Gilda leaving Otto so devastated, he goes off on a tramp steamer. Now living in London with Leo, Gilda is visited by Otto, who has become a successful and sought-after artist. Just as abruptly, Gilda then goes off with Ernest, a stuffy English art dealer leaving both Otto and Leo to find solace both physically and emotionally in each other. The following year, now married to Ernest, Gilda has become a successful decorator in New York. Her seemingly complacent life is disrupted by the return of both Otto and Leo, who have come to take her back with them.



?Design for Living is about...living by your own moral code, which is threatening to other people?s standards but hurtful to no one but oneself.Ē
