Michael S. Smith Interior Design

Michael Smith is one of the most respected talents in the industry today with an international profile of residential, hospitality and commercial clients. He’s been named the Designer of the Year by Elle Décor as well as having been named five times to Architectural Digest’s “The AD 100”. He has also been the White House decorator since 2008 and is responsible for the 2010 makeover of the oval office. He currently lives in Madrid, Spain with his partner, past United States Ambassador to Spain, James Costos.

“My inspiration is my clients and their vision, ”The California-based designer told AD in 2010. Clearly, it’s a winning strategy, because among his loyal clients are Hollywood heavy-hitters, business titans, media personalities, and, perhaps most notably, the Obamas.

‘What I have always loved is the idea of combining history, architecture, and personality,’ explains the award-winning designer, whose signature style is a seamless blend of classic English country house, European classicism, and American modernism. ‘I’ve always been a history obsessive and have always wanted to do something that puts that into practice.’ Here are a few images of his work.
