Shown above the jump are the Kennedy's blue room, the Lincoln sitting room in the Clinton years, and photos showing designer Windsor Smith's recommendation to "replace frou-frou damasks and silks with environmentally sustainable casual linens in an earthy brown palette." Also shown above is designer Clodagh's idea to install a home spa because the "message of healthy American begins at the top."

On this page is a photo showing DC designer Darryl Carter's idea to decorate antiques with muted fabric colors.
