The rooms were decorated by the Los Angeles-based interior designer Michael Smith, who was introduced to the family after the 2008 election. The First Lady said Smith managed to reflect her family’s tastes while respecting the history of the White House.

The photos reveal the Yellow Oval Room, the Treaty Room and the Old Family Dining Room.

This first picture shows the Yellow Oval Room in the White House, Washington. The Designer Michael S. Smith specified a Donald Kaufman paint for this room, as well as artworks by Paul Cézanne and Daniel Garber to flank the mantel. Smith softened the Yellow Oval Room, using smoky browns, greens, golds, and blues. The 1978 Camp David peace accords were signed at the antique Denis-Louis Ancellet desk, which can be seen in front left.

The next picture, taken in August 2016, shows the Treaty Room. This Treaty Room is filled with collectables including one of President Barack Obama’s two Grammy Awards, family photos, and a custom-made football. It’s also where Obama often retreats late at night. The room’s namesake table, which has been in the White House since 1869, is used by the President as a desk. Obama likes to say the White House is the “people’s house.”

The last picture shows the Old Family Dining room. This room has a modern splash because of the works by Robert Rauschenberg, on the right side of the picture, and Alma Thomas, who was the first African American artist woman represented in the White House (on the left side of the picture).
