The first lady herself has taken charge of several ‘home improvement’ projects since she moved into the White House. One of her first tasks was updating the wall fabric in the Red Room, revamping the window dressings in the Green Room and refurbishing furniture pieces in the Blue Room.
Melania Trump will have a few new touches to showcase on Friday when guests visit the White House for only the second state dinner of the Trump presidency.
The first lady has overseen a number of home improvements projects since moving into the White House to ensure the well-trod public rooms continue to look their museum-quality best.
Among the changes at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue include refreshed wall fabric in the Red Room, re-purposed draperies in the Green Room and restored furniture in the Blue Room.
Some of the projects were long overdue.
Sunlight streaming into the Red Room had left some of the wall fabric ‘so faded it was almost pink,’ said Stewart McLaurin, president of the White House Historical Association, which helps finance upkeep of some rooms in the 132-room mansion.
First lady Jacqueline Kennedy founded the private, nonprofit organization in 1961.
‘Those rooms should always look their very best and it was just very faded and really, really needed to be done,’ McLaurin said. [Daily Mail]
Look at the “before and after” of the Red Room:
Before, the drapes in the Green Room looked drab and lifeless.
Melania takes great pride in taking care of the White House, but always with an eye to refurbish for history’s sake, and also to save money.
Mrs Trump, who keeps a relatively low profile as first lady, has put her interest in history to use overseeing the restoration projects.
‘Our family is grateful to live in this true symbol of our nation’s history, but we are even more honored to play a part in restoring and enhancing our country’s sacred landmark,’ she said at a May reception.
The first lady designed a new rug for the Diplomatic Reception Room, the main entrance off the South Lawn, after foot traffic wore a path across the old one, McLaurin said. The replacement has a border showing the flowers of the 50 states, a touch added by the first lady. [Daily Mail]
