Official - Smith is the White House Decorator

It appears to be official - Michael Smith is the White House decorator. Per a post on Domino magazine's website '"A spokesperson from President-elect Barack Obama's transition team has revealed to domino magazine's editor in chief Deborah Needleman that Smith's dream was about to come true."

Click here for the full article. I wonder if this means Domino might have the inside track to publishing the finished rooms?

This is much more interesting than showing you a photo of the hundreds - if not thousands, of port-a-johns (sp?) that now surround the mall and Constitution Ave. Yesterday driving into DC I was amazed to see how many there were - and then driving back home even more amazed to see the number had grown.

Yes - you got the scoop! Now I need to buy his book, I have had my eye on it for ages.

I would love to see some current pictures of the private rooms of the White House. I saw the Clinton era decor in an old Traditional Home recently, but I don't think I have seen any George and Laura Bush era pictures of the private rooms.
