Look! Decor Color in the White House

Architectural Digest

'Tis the election season so Architectural Digest pulled together some past house profiles of "people involved in America's political landscape." The magazine's slideshow tours include some bold color uses from the frequently redecorated White House (the private quarters are redone by each new administration). Above is First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy in 1961 and and her White House decor. More color inspiration from the White House below the jump...
