Michelle Obama loves to dress in J. Crew, and now she's bringing her affordable aesthetic to her new home. According to Us Weekly, the First Lady will use Pottery Barn to re-decorate parts of the White House.

Michelle is working with L.A.-based Michael Smith (clients: Steven Spielberg, Michelle Pfeiffer) to furnish the rooms of Malia, 10, and Sasha, 7, with items from the reasonably-priced shop and Anthropologie, an Obama staffer reveals in the newest issue of Us Weekly.


Smith says he'll take design cues from the Obamas' "casual style" while "utilizing affordable brands." (The family also brought a portion of their collection of African and Asian art from their $1.65 million home in Chicago's Hyde Park.)
