Set on the Balearic Sea, this Mallorcan retreat is the latest residential project by Michael Smith, the designer best known for redesigning the Oval Office for the former US president, Barack Obama. Photographed for the October 2017 issue of WSJ Magazine, the six-bedroom villa belongs to Smith’s good friends Nancy and Howard Marks, she the chair of the fashion label Sies Marjan and he the co-chair of an investment firm. The overall mood is relaxed yet vibrant, full of colour and patterns, a lush expression of its Mediterranean setting.
