The Silver Lining

Today is my birthday and my wish is for this election to be over! I say it halfway in jest, but  the current political climate is filled with such nastiness. Sadly, I am not sure if we will be any better off once the election is behind us, but one can only hope. In a moment of such polarizing ideals and political heaviness, it feels like a breath of fresh air to get a glimpse into the Obama family’s private quarters at The White House. Architectural Digest grants us unparalleled access into the private world of the Obamas inside of the most famous house in the world. Decorated by Michael S Smith, the rooms honor the traditional architecture and history of the house, while bringing in a fresh, modern sensibility. The colors are earthy, there are unexpected touches throughout, and the art represents artists who have never before been included in the White House. Regardless of where you stand politically, it is nice to take a moment to think about everything that The White House represents. On a lighter note, who would you like to see decorate The White House for the next President of the United States?
