How the Obama's Decorated the White House

After You See How Beautifully the Obama's Decorated the White House, You'll Pray President Trump Leaves It Be

Michelle Obama revealed her dazzling interior design skills when she transformed the White House's Old Family Dining Room from outdated traditional to cool contemporary. And now we know the former First Lady led a similar overhaul of the White House residence. The Obama's recently opened up exclusively to Architectural Digest, revealing their rarely seen private living quarters.

White House interior designer, Michael S. Smith – if that name sounds familiar, it's because the Obama's vacationed at his Palm Spring's home immediately after leaving office – told Architectural Digest, "Mrs. Obama often talks about bringing new voices into the national conversation, and that idea informed many of the decisions we made...We selected artists and designers who would never have appeared in the White House before." Mrs. Obama sang Michael's praise to the magazine, saying that his designs not only respected the history of the White House, they also turned it into a warm family home for her husband and two young daughters.

Watch the video above for to see Architectural Digest's exclusive tour of the Obama's private living quarters, and then cross your fingers that the new President doesn't alter the stunning space as he has changed the Oval Office.
