What Do YOU Think Of The Redesign Of The Oval Office?

September 7th, 2010

Michael Smith is a well known designer that was chosen
by the Obama’s to redesign rooms in the White House.

What are your thoughts on the NEW Oval Office?

I love the idea of the rug.  I would be interested in knowing 
what the constraints of the project were so I could 
understand the result better.

Unlike the Official State Rooms, the residence of the Presidents
family can be whatever fits their style and has no restrictions.

Since the Kennedy Administration there was a mandate passed that
nothing could be thrown away.  So each administration has a warehouse
of things available as well as what is brought in.  The budget for this high profile
job is said to be $100,000.00.  
Not a big budget for the 24 rooms in the White House. 

What do you think?
