Creating your dream houseóa prospect as exciting as it is daunting. Michael Smith, a favorite among celebrity clientele, reveals the method of his design magic. Offering thoughtful ideas and practical advice, the designer walks the reader through his process, from the gathering of resource material (from magazines and iconic films to something as simple as a shell or a swatch of vintage fabric), expertly pairing simpler and grander elements (or inexpensive with more extravagant objects), perfecting the editing process, to knowing when a room is finished. Detailing the nearly encyclopedic range of styles he culls from to create his signature style, the designer describes recent examples of his work, beginning with a modest and quirkily designed house in Bel Air, Smith redid for himself. Razed, rebuilt, and decorated over the course of five years, the house allowed Smith to experiment and explore ideas freely and the result is a gracious home, as welcoming as it is stylish. In addition to his California residence, twenty other projects are featured, from a New England clapboard to a Malibu villa overlooking the Pacific to a city townhouse. In each, Smith deconstructs the elements which come together to make the ideal home.

One of Architectural Digestís 100 Top Designers and winner of Elle Decorís Designer of the Year Award in 2003, Michael S. Smith is an internationally respected interior designer. He is the author of Michael Smithís Elements of Style. Christine Pittel is a senior editor at House Beautiful magazine. Her writing has also appeared in the New York Times, Town & Country, Harper's Bazaar, House & Garden, and many other publications.

  • Michael S. Smith Houses (Hardcover)

    Michael Smith, referred to as the designer for the Obamas, is one of my favorite designers. I have other books by him, so it was a no-brainer to purchase this book from the site. He is a wonderful designer and has been showcased on HGTV on a number of occasions. His style is traditional, but he knows how to raise his style to a level that is unique among high-end interior designers. I would recommend this book to anyone who is into design or are looking for ideas for uniquely traditional interiors.
