Obamas to fund interior designer personally


If you have been keeping tabs on our post on US Presidents and their (Oval) offices, you might have noticed us sneaking in an update on Barack Obama’s office. Yes, he has hired the LA based designer Michael S. Smith to dream up a new look for the White House, but not just that, now news is slowly beginning to trickle in that he is in fact going to privately fund the renovation. A Rs.50 lakh ($100,000) makeover is no big deal for the White House (especially taking into account that the past makeovers were several times as expensive) but it is likely that Obama just wants to be a bit careful here and not send the wrong signals.
