On the Newsstand: Look Inside the White House

Think you know your Green Room from your Queen's Bedroom from your Lincoln's Bedroom? If you haven't seen the recent exclusive pictures of the newly redone White House in this month's Architectural Digest, you might not recognize them.

Perfect timing for President's Day, the glossy spread features updates to the decor in almost a dozen rooms, including the Oval Office. From the first occupant, John Adams in 1800, every president has added his own touch to the residence. FDR added the movie theater, which is also featured in the story, having been redone in the rich, red upholstery of early 20th century movie palaces, which was Mrs. Bush's inspiration. I love the calm and crisp yellow in the new Vermeil room, with Lady Bird Johnson's portrait above the mantel.

AD has a fantastic slideshow of the whole house, highlighting all of the updates. Now, I'm no Casa, but my favorite pieces are the rosy-brocade bench at the foot of the bed in the Queen's room and the new Restoration Hardware-esque bedding in the Lincoln Bedroom. I wonder who will be staying there in the Bushes' final year? Moving out of that house must be pretty hard.
