Interior designer Michael S. Smith is considered one of the design industry’s most respected talents. With an international roster of high-profile residential and commercial clients, Smith has developed a style that has been characterized as a delicate blend of “European tradition and American modernism.”
Pairing lush interiors with dynamic insider advice, Michael Smith’s Elements of Style beautifully captures the essential building blocks of good interior design. Smith covers in depth the most common decorating decisions everyone faces: working with color, selecting the right paint, choosing window treatments and floor coverings, creating a luxurious bed, and building a furniture collection over time.
Illustrated with stunning color photography, including a dozen homes presented in depth to demonstrate how rooms work alone and together, the book also includes practical sidebars on learning how to buy antiques and attend auctions, how to ready your home for sale, and how to create a house that can evolve over time.
