Each President of the United States has put his own touch on the Oval Office in which he works. Changing out drapes, maybe a new carpet image source a different arrangement of the sofas...Obama is no exception. ;-)  image source The NYT has a little piece on the renovation in the " Audacity of Taupe ". Want to know more about Michael S. Smith , designer behind this understated update?  Here's a 2009 interview with him from our dearly departed Domino magazine.  image source His site defines his design style as "a delicate blend of 'European tradition and American modernism'.” There's even a quote or two from color consultant Amy Wax , a fellow IACC member (and current Pres of the organization). image source Care to trace the evolution of the office ?
