Editorial Reviews

Review

"Obama White House designer Michael S. Smith tackles kitchens and baths, two of the most challenging rooms in the home—combining inspiring images of Smith’s projects from around the world with his practical insights. A resources section gives recommendations for everything from appliances to wall coverings." ~Architectural Digest

"After doing up the Obamas' White House, Michael S. Smith -- interior designer to the Hollywood elite and lesser (but no less affluent) mortals -- pulls on the rubber gloves with his latest coffee-table tome, "Kitchens and Baths." Utilizing as visual examples homes he designed -- as well as others he admires for their eating and bathing zones Mr. Smiths book is broken into regions ("Beach," "Town," "Country") that provide loads of inspiration. Ultimately, perfecting pantry and potty is a game of hide and seek: keeping the inner workings concealed but reachable." ~Wall Street Journal

"...it’s quite thoughtful of Smith to hone in on that niche and deliver inspiration targeted at those who are in search of inspiration for the two rooms in which most people spend a good bulk of their time." ~La Dolce Vita

I am a huge fan of Michael S. Smith's work and was waiting with great anticipation for his newest book. While the photography is terrific and he offers some excellent ideas and background for his design concepts, there were almost no new subject rooms. Almost every home featured has been included in his earlier books or featured in shelter magazines. As someone who follows his work, I was hoping to see new projects not a recycling of his earlier work.

Michael Smith is without question one of the most talented decorators of our time. It was with great anticipation that I preordered his new kitchen and bath book. This book however is just a collection of images that have already been published. Many of the images seemed to have just been scanned in from previous articles, the quality of the images was actually better in the original publications. His first two books were absolutely dynamite, in fact I need to order new ones because mine are so worn out from looking at them so often, but truthfully this one is not one that I will hold onto.

This is probably the biggest disappointment of all time..there is nothing
creative nor interesting in this book - I purchase design books frequently -
whether travelling, bookstore or Amazon and this is the first negative
review which I have made....the photographs are even a disappointment.
I think the time has come when designers should stop publishing 'coffee table'
books...they're beginning to look the same.
