BARACK OBAMA'S OVAL OFFICE

GOODMORNINGMYFRIENDS

"Government of the People, By the People, For the People,"

Barack Obama's Oval Office




Every US president eventually puts his own mark on the Oval Office,

 decoratively speaking, and the White House unveiled the Obama makeover

 on Tuesday, just hours before a major presidential speech on Iraq from his famous Resolute Desk.


US president Barack Obama takes a peek under the famous

 Resolute Desk at the Oval Office.

Design experts were weighing in immediately, of course, on the
 calming melange of browns and tans, with a generous helping of 
leather and an assortment of stripes: Was it all a little too No-Drama Obama?
 Or was it livelier, cooler, more chic and elegant than before?
First, the changes: While the president and his family were away on vacation
 in Martha's Vineyard, workers installed new striped wallpaper, new sofas,
 re-upholstered chairs, new lamps and a coffee table - and a new rug bearing
 quotes around its borders from famous Americans.
The updates have a more modern, easy-to-live-in look - for example,
 the new brown leather desk chair, or the mahogany armchairs by the fireplace,
 now re-upholstered in caramel-colored leather.
Or the plush sofas, custom-made in New York and covered with a very soft-looking 
light brown cotton with red, white and blue threads running through it.

This Feb. 5, 1961 file photo shows a view of the Resolute desk in
 President Kennedy's Oval Office at the White House in Washington. 
Built from the timbers of a British warship, the desk was installed in
 the Oval Office by John F. Kennedy, and since has been used by 
Presidents Clinton, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush.

This Jan. 22, 1990 file photo released by the White House shows President
 George H.W. Bush's Oval Office at the White House in Washington.
 Bush's redecoration of the Oval Office included a new rug with a gold 
Presidential Seal, new draperies, a coffee table, and two tall armchairs.
 Presidents typically put their own touches on the Oval Office early in their terms.

This Sept. 3, 1993 file photo shows President Clinton's Oval Office at the 
White House in Washington. The Scott Group of Grand Rapids, Mich., made
 President Clinton's Oval Office Rug, seen here, and President Obama's new Oval Office rug as well.

This Friday, Feb. 29, 2008 file photo shows President Bush's Oval Office
 at the White House in Washington. Presidents typically put their own touches
 on the Oval Office early in their terms. Bush brought in a rug designed by his wife
, Laura. It included radiating stripes, which he often said suggested to him the optimism of a sunrise.

This Dec. 29, 2009 file photo shows President Barack Obama's Oval Office
 at the White House in Washington. Every president eventually puts his own mark
 on the Oval Office, decoratively speaking. The White House unveiled the Obama

In this combination of photos, President Barack Obama's Oval Office is shown 
on Dec. 29, 2009, left, and after renovations on Aug. 31, 2010, at the White House 
in Washington. The Oval Office setting now sports a new look - one that pays homage
 to Martin Luther King Jr. and four previous presidents. While the president and his 
family were away on vacation in Martha's Vineyard, workers installed new wallpaper,
 a new rug, new sofas, lamps and a coffee table. Officials gave photographers a look
 hours before the speech was to be delivered on Tuesday.
