Hello President Biden, let’s see your office

Let’s all take a sigh of relief as we detox from political text messages, at least until the next congressional election in 2022. We have a new White House and with each President comes new Oval Office décor*. In line with his brand, former President Trump’s Oval office changed the red curtains of the Obama office to gold curtains. For now, President Biden decided to keep the gold look, that is believed to originated with the Clinton White House. Historian William Seale and CNN’s Erin Burnett report that every president changes the rug and President Biden was no exception. The White House must have a big storage area to hold spare tapestries and furniture.

Did you know that moving the former president out and moving the new president in happens in merely 5 hours? This includes personal living quarters as well as the oval office. That sounds like a lot of pressure on the movers!

While you may have to personally handle your own moving arrangements, we offer a complimentary staging service to help sell your home faster. No need to worry about the color of the curtains or bringing in modern furniture to give your home an updated look. In the eyes of potential buyers, Virtual Staging can give new life to your home.
