The Oval Office Redesigned

Big news in the interior design world and our country is the redesign of the Oval Office. Each president usually redecorates to an extent to accommodate his taste and President Obama has made a few changes. The interior decorator Michael Smith added new striped wall paper, 2 new sofas, a new coffee table, and a new rug among other things. The custom rug replaces the sun burst design used by former President Bush and features 5 quotes surrounding the seal chosen by President Obama. The room gives off a more comfortable, relaxing feel with the use of neutral colors. What do you think of the President’s new office?
