It was only a matter of time (hours, actually) before our new president, Donald Trump, added to the historic Oval Office.
The most notable change is to one of our favorite room accessories: . The crimson-colored drapes that once hung from the Oval Office windows during President Obama's time have been replaced with bright gold ones. We got a glimpse of them on Friday via photographs of President Trump signing an executive order at the White House.
Of course, this update isn't at all surprising. Gold is clearly one of the Trump family's favorite colors; we've seen it throughout his and First Lady Melania's in Trump Tower. However, for the Oval Office, it's a classic choice. Gold curtains were also favored by President Bill Clinton and President George W. Bush (for a time).
President Trump — or at least his decorators — have also chosen to replace the rug, which most presidents do upon taking office. President Obama had a large oval rug, which featured quotes from four former presidents surrounding it, according to .
Now that there is a golden rug with garland edges, which appears to be similar to or the exact one used by President Ronald Reagan.
Contrary to earlier reports, Trump of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. from the office, but instead simply moved it to another place in room. Trump did, however, bring back a Winston Churchill bust that President Obama had placed in another room during his terms.
CNN also claims that Trump has with (you guessed it) gold ones, but has decided to keep the Resolute Desk. The desk was a gift from in 1880, and was brought back into the Oval Office by Jackie Kennedy for her husband. Since that time it's been used by many heads of state, including Presidents Jimmy Carter, Reagan, Clinton, George W. Bush and Obama.
According to the , the First Family is given $100,000 allowance to redecorate the Oval Office and the private residence. Both President Reagan and President Obama declined the money in favor of using personal funds. President Trump may also choose to do the same, although it's unclear if he is going to make any other changes. In an interview with , when discussing the White House, he said he would "maybe touch it up a little bit," noting that it's a "special place."
