The presidential transition was never going to be short on fashion news, and the announcement of the interior designer for Obama''s new home proves it once again.
It has been confirmed that Michael Smith, a Californian designer, will redecorate the White House to reflect the tastes of its new occupants in keeping with the modern image and the change-driven agenda of the new first couple.
The Guardian newspaper quoted Michalle Obama as saying that the designer shared her vision for a family friendly environment incorporating the works of some of America''s greatest artists and designers.
Smith wants his choices to reflect the family''s informal style.
"Their interest in bringing 20th-century American artists to the forefront and utilizing affordable brands and products will serve as our guiding principles as we make the residence feel like their home," he told the newspaper.
Smith graduated from Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles, and his clients have included Cindy Crawford, Richard Gere, Steven Spielberg, and Michelle Pfeiffer.
