Wow- great new job for Mr. Michael! Who else was in the running? I like the designs in the second and third photo. I can't pinpoint his style. I tend to be a bit eclectic. But then again, I gravitate towards antlers, chandeliers, navajo blankets and monogramming. So I have no experience to speak from! ;)

His work is great from the photos. It will be interesting to see how he incorporates the new president's style into the white house. I like your blog...I grew up in Santa Barbara but am in Texas now. Design is a passion of mine too.
Blessings!

I do really like his style. It is a bit of elegant and eclectic with a twist of modern elements in there. WOW the white house...could you imagine, where would you even start. Love your blog by the way.

Wow! I guess the White House will get a modern new edge! Will this be for the private quarters? I am more of a traditionalist myself....Debbie

Meh - I like the white/tan bedroom and the cream/black/white entry, but the rest is a little stuffy for me. Even the "modern" clean stuff has an uptight vibe.

Lauren said...

Honestly, I LOVE. (That pale aqua bedroom is my favorite!)

I hadn't known of him prior to your post .... I do like everything you have shown us. I will go searching for more of him!

I think Michael Smith is the perfect choice to decorate the White House.

Yes, I like Michael's work. I like how he mixes dark woods with light fabrics and the elegant clean lines. He also mixes a little modern with classic and I am definately a mix-it-up girl!!

Hope we get to see what he does with the White House!

Boy, isn't he lucky? I didn't know it needed re-doing! :O) I like some of his photos (the traditional ones), but not so much the contemporary ones. I think the WH should be traditional, so he should be a good fit...since they didn't select US!
