And The White House First-Decorator is … Michael S. Smith!
The Obamas have chosen their designer for the White House: Michael S. Smith — a Santa Monica-based Californian with many celebrity clients. Smith has already started shopping at “a variety of different outlets, (and) kid-friendly everyday retail stores” to redesign the White House. His priority is the bedrooms of First Daughters Malia and Sasha. Pictured above are some of Smith’s designs pulled from Domino. More info below the jump…
Smith states, “The family’s casual style, their interest in bringing 20th century American artists to the forefront and utilizing affordable brands and products will serve as our guiding principles as we make the residence feel like their home.”
The Washington Post reports that little is known about the Obamas’ taste in furnishings and that photos of their Chicago home show Asian and African art, glass-fronted bookcases, and framed family photos.
