The Oval Office Gets a Makeover
I read in The New York Times that President Obama completely renovated the interiors of his Oval Office. Renovations are good especially since it was not done at the taxpayers expense.
I appreciate that he reused some of the pieces from his predecessor since its wasteful just getting rid of something for the sake of getting something new. He kept the desk of course and the portraits of Lincoln and Washington and the grandfather clock. Some chairs were recovered and there's a brand new rug which was donated.
No mention of a designer for this makeover which is disappointing. If there actually was a designer, the article I read failed to mention it. Designers work hard and like to be acknowledged.
I like the new relaxed more casual feel of the room but lets just say that the word "drab" comes to mind. It's not that I think that hot pink would have worked in this room, but it all seems so dull. I would have hoped that Michelle might have been on hand to bring some sizzle to the room like she does with her fashion sense. Think we can organized a do-over of the make-over and give it some life?
