Oval Office Gets a Gay Man’s Touch 


As political pundits are busy critiquing Obama's Tuesday night address from the Oval Office, design enthusiasts are blogging about the room's new look.

The refreshed look of the Oval Office comes courtesy of designer Michael Smith, who was appointed by the president to the Committee for the Preservation of the White House in February.

Smith, who is gay, has been featured in Elle Decor, W, and Architectural Digest. On Tuesday the world got a look at his hard work -- new wallpaper, new sofas, new lamps.
