Michael S. Smith to Decorate Obama White House


(above, Michael’s two books- I dig the title of the first one!)

I had guessed Bunny Williams, but Domino broke the news last night that Michael S. Smith, famed designer, has been tapped to re-decorate the private quarters of the White House for the Obama family. Michael is massively successful- kind of like the J.Lo of the design world- he’s got his own lines of tile, rugs, furniture, lighting, bath fixtures and even his own home scents! He’s got a strong traditional sensibility, but can add punches of modern design when needed. I think this is a great fit!

Here are some images of Michael’s work:







Michaels rugs for Mansour and Patterson, Flynn & Martin:

His tile for Ann Sacks:

A couple favorites from his Jasper furniture line (love the chicken wire cabinetry!)


His bath fixtures for Kallista (obsessed with the marble farm sink- ok, I’m obsessed with all of it!)



His line of home scents:

I can’t wait to see what he does with the White House!
