So, it’s official….the Obamas have selected Michael S. Smith as the new White House decorator. I won’t deny, my lack of enthusiasm over this choice (he’s certainly no where near the top of my list of amazing designers in the world) but I can understand why it happened. Smith’s attention to detail is superb, his use of materials is fantastic, and his classic English inspired interiors are warm, comfortable, and dare I say it? Boring.
