MICHAEL SMITH ~ SETTING THE BAR IN DESIGN

When interior designer Michael Smith is running things, you know that it will be stunning. He is all about mood and light and comfort. When you see a home that he has designed, it has that extra subtle wow factor to it, a job well done.

When the clients asked Smith to design their Upper East Side home, he moved in for a year while he was renovating his own apartment. The client wanted traditional, so Smith used some pieces from his collection for Baker. The lighting, the de Gournay wallpaper, the dark paneling, and the rugs set the tone for the perfect interior. ENJOY!

Hi Ms. Splendid!

Good to hear from you again! (I have another blog sis in WILLOW Decor - we have become really good friends).

Mr. Smith can move into my home any time, and I will find a little project for him. Preferably something involving ceilings. Just look at the ones in this stunning apartment! I will ask him to bring that mirror in the foyer as well. Very nice.

ox, Mon

P.S Adding you to my blog roll as well.

Michael Smith is definitely one of my all time favorite designers - he really creates incredibly layered rich environments - frequently with seemingly disparate elements. Can't wait for my November HB!!
