Politico is reporting that the U.S. State Department has decided it needs to decorate for Christmas. Since Hillary Clinton isn’t working out of the building she would have hoped for she’s decided to take matters into her own hands. Why should the White House get all the fun?
The Harry S. Truman Building which houses the State Department is no beauty from the outside and is currently undergoing a 12 year plan to renovate and modernize. Hilary has decided to take over on the interior this holiday and with the help from various home decor magazines she should end up with an office unlike any other government official.
Better Homes and Gardens will decorate the Blair House’s front and back rooms and the garden. Martha Stewart Living will focus on Blair House’s dining rooms, entryway and Lee Drawing Room. Mother Earth News turns its sights on Blair House’s Jackson Place Sitting Room and Jackson Place Dining Room. Mother Earth News will team up with Natural Home to work on the State Department’s Adams Room. This Old House will tend to the Lincoln Room and Truman Study at Blair House. Traditional Home has been assigned the Blair House’s Lee Dining Room and Lee Entrance Room.
Each magazine will fund the decorations themselves.
If President Obama wanted to really make a statement that he’s progressive he’d ditch the old guard White House decorators and employ Young House Love to decorate the Roosevelt Room, Design*Sponge to the Green Room, Decor8 gets the East Room and Apartment Therapy puts it’s holiday touches on the Oval Office.
How do we make this happen???
