Well, Barack and Michelle have selected Michael Smith to decorate their private quarters in the White House... I think they chose very wisely.
The budget is $100,000. Margaret Russell was interviewed on the Today show (along with some footage from Deborah Needleman)... both mentioned Smith plans to use our good ole American retail chains like Target, Anthropologie, Restoration Hardware, and Urban Outfitters. Urban Outfitters? That one surprised me... doesn't seem quite like "White House material"... anyway, Smith is not granting any interviews, but I sure hope we'll see some pictures once he's worked his magic. The installation begins next week!
