Decorated by the renowned interior designer Michael S. Smith for the Obama Family, the White House’s private rooms are cozy and stylish enough as the family that calls them home. The Smith-Obama collaboration occurred as any typical designer-client relationship: the interior designer began by sending the Obamas various design books which they notated extensively. And with less than two months to make plans before the Obamas moved from the White House, The Most Expensive Homes‘ editors invite you to take a glimpse inside the Obama Family‘s stylish private world. Check it out!
The Treaty Room is where President Obama often retreats late at night. He uses the room’s namesake table, which has been in the White House since 1869, as a desk.
At the Treaty Room, Sir Jacob Epstein’s 1946 bust of Winston Churchill stands on a gorgeous circa-1810 New York card table.
The Yellow Oval Room is filled with smoky browns, greens, golds, and blues. The 1978 Camp David peace agreements were signed at the antique Denis-Louis Ancellet desk in the forefront.
The Center Hall contains Peter Schlesinger urns and paintings by Sam Francis and Hans Hofmann.
The marvelous First Family dining room is elegant and cozy at the same time.
Works by Alma Thomas and Robert Rauschenberg give a modern touch in the Old Family Dining Room.
The Solarium on the White House roof is just amazing!
The master suite’s antique canopy bed is curtained with Larsen and Jasper fabrics and outfitted with Nancy Koltes bed linens.
