White House Tour

Today is the day!!! It’s great because I don’t know how much more of this campaign we can take and I promise today’s post is the most political this blog will ever get. Architectural Digest recently took us on a tour of the Obama’s family quarters in the White House and I thought it appropriate to mark Election Day with glimpses into their beautiful home and gardens, and of course Bo – the luckiest dog on the planet!!!

For the interiors, First Lady Michelle Obama enlisted the help of designer Michael S. Smith and the result is a formal, traditional and grand home reinterpreted to suit a young family. My favorite touch is the modern artwork that punctuates each room. Let me know what you think! 🙂

      Thanks, Louise! Yes, all the effort that goes into designing a home like this and Bo steals the show every time 🙂
