How Past Presidents Have Decorated the White House

Spoiler: It's always fabulous, no matter the era.

The White House is the country's most famous address, yes, but for the First Family it has to feel like a home. So with each new administration, the White House undergoes a major decor overhaul. Trump has already started to add his gold-loving personal touch, and it was recently announced that Melania Trump has officially hired Tham Kannalikham to redecorate the White House living quarters. In honor of the upcoming White House renovation, we looked at how past Presidents decorated the historic house.
