{Design Crush} Michael Boyd

Okay……..don’t judge, but last night I was watching Real Housewives of Atlanta (Yes, I can see you all rolling your eyes at me, and I don’t care. I LOVE all things Andy Cohen and Bravo TV related. Leave me alone and let me live my life.) and COULD NOT WAIT to see the new, crazy-ass chick Marlo Hampton‘s home.  Considering she doesn’t keep it a secret that her money comes from being a hooker her billionaire ex-boyfriend, I was hoping expecting it to be all cray cray, over-the-top tacky, awesomeness; but I was disappointed surprised at how beautiful and chic it was.  In the last episode NeNe came over for the grand tour and I KNEW I’d seen her dining room before.

Look familiar to anyone?  I dug through m’ archives and YUP! Not only have I seen it before, but I’ve featured it in a previous post! Check it HERE!

This space is unique, luxurious, and I’m really feelin all of the Fornacetti plates over that luxe, patterned wallpaper. Love it.  Oh! And those chairs?  They are upholstered in cashmere.  Sexy Time.

Here are some more images of Marlo’s home, for your viewing pleasure…

After looking up the designer Michael Boyd, who is the Principal Designer/Owner of SmithBoyd Interiors in Atlanta, I discovered I really like his aesthetic and now have a bit of a design crush on the fella.  Here are some more images of his lovely and lush interiors. 

I find his spaces to be very glamorous yet still unisex.  What do you think?  Should we take a trip to the ATL and pop some bottles with Marlo and Michael?

  2. Hehe..I like that show too! I haven’t seen the latest season though. Her place is incredibly luxe, I wasn’t familiar with the designer…amazing work!

  3. What dramatic and fun spaces! Girl I am a huge fan of The Real Housewives series, so no judgement here! 🙂

  4. wow, what a luxurious space! Can’t even imagine what it’d be like to live there. amazing I’m sure!

  5. Beautiful dining room…amazing colors! THis is one talented designer. Thank you for visiting and commenting.

  6. Head-over-heels in love with it all! Every room is so glamorous yet comfortable (with a masculine edge to it). I really love the different fabrics and don’t even get me started on the chairs!

  7. I adore Boyd’s work! Now I have to watch RHW just so I can see Marlo’s house.

  8. Ooh gurl, you know I watch Housewives of Atlanta too. Clonk! I actually haven’t seen this episode but I knew that Marlo had some good taste. I hated what Kim’s interior designer did to her house.

    I love the look of NeNe’s face in that first photo.
