Obama's 'Audacity of Taupe' Palette Pales the White House

In a redecorating move that Arianna Huffington has called 'the audacity of taupe,' Barack Obama's design team has produced a yawn-worthy achievement. Gone are the Laura Bush-designed sunburst rug and the yellow-color accent chairs -- taupe has arrived.

Wheat and cream-colored carpet hosts a presidential seal. It's made of 25% recycled wool, of course. The recycled rug is ringed with quotations chosen for their tried and true inspirational (or meme) value. It's good to know that inspiration has found a way to wiggle into the Oval Office's 'audacity of taupe' extremely boring makeover.
