While I've introduced you to White House decorator Michael Smith, I didn't have the details on what his designs for the Obama White House would entail. Well, according to US Weekly, the Obamas are taking a pretty common-sense approach to their decorating scheme. In addition to using pieces they've brought to the White House and their collection of African and Asian art, the Obamas will decorate with affordable, reasonably priced retailers, such as Pottery Barn.
The Obamas, who are known for their modern, elegant, yet casual style (which totally fits with decorator Smith's style), should add a great punch of 21st century verve to the capital. I can't wait to see what they do!
