Leaving politics aside for the moment, we figured that most everyone would be interested in a small peek at the design choices made during the Bush administration at the White House, which is featured in the new issue of Architectural Digest. Whether viewed with morbid curiosity, patriotic fervor or pure and simple decor obsession...here it is:
According to Architectural Digest (which features these White House photos in the March 2008 issue), "The presidents and first ladies who have lived in the White House since its completion in 1800 have left their mark on its rooms and grounds. When President George W. Bush took office, First Lady Laura Bush continued the tradition, overseeing a major redecoration of several rooms, in consultation with Forth Worth, Texas, designer Kenneth Blasingame."
