Michael Smith in Malibu

Architectural Digest published an article in 2005 on this Malibu house decorated by Michael Smith. It was my first introduction to the now very famous designer. I loved this house then and I love it still today. I think it was the blue checks that sold me on him, because I love checks and I love blue and white, so there would be no question about me loving Michael. Some of these pictures didn't make his book, so for your viewing pleasure, earlier Michael Smith.

I love this Dutch door.

The infamous blue checked living room with chintz draperies.

Another view. Note the green garden seat with shells.

Bennison fabric on sofa, Chelsea Editions on blinds.

Love the mirror. Note the sofa.

The master bedroom, carrying the red, white and light blue theme throughout the house.

Love the black bed.

Typical Californian outdoor room.

Aw, so cute! And so young looking here! This is pre-debonair Michael, no one styled his hair!!
