Mr. President, I love what you've done to the place !

If you haven't heard by now President and First lady Michelle Obama recently had the oval office redone while away on vacation and what a great job their team has done. It is customary that every President gets the luxury of making over certain areas of the White House to make it feel comfy during there stay including the Oval Office. It is also safe to say that most of us get excited when we get a chance to glimpse into the lives of "famous" people especially our President, to see how they live and the interiors of their homes. The Obama's are known for their timeless style and great taste and this certainly carries over in the Oval office with it's rich brown and tan hues that spread throughout the office. My favorite part of the room hands down,  I would have to say is the rug with the famous Presidential seal in the center and completely  surrounding the rug are some of President Obama's favorite quotes by past presidents, as well as civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr. this is truly the statement piece of the room the wheat, cream and blue colored rug was made and donated by the Scott Group, an American carpet manufacturer based in Grand Rapids, Michigan the quotes that surround the rug are:

  • “The Only Thing We Have to Fear is Fear Itself” – President Franklin D. Roosevelt
  • “The Arc of the Moral Universe is Long, But it Bends Towards Justice” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
  • “Government of the People, By the People, For the People” – President Abraham Lincoln
  • “No Problem of Human Destiny is Beyond Human Beings” – President John F. Kennedy
  • “The Welfare of Each of Us is Dependent Fundamentally Upon the Welfare of All of Us” – President Theodore Roosevelt

Considering the decision making that goes on in these rooms the calming effect is very welcoming with the makeover. I can see myself setting on the couch with a afghan and reading a nice book with a cup of tea.
