which White House Dining Room do you like the best

I like number 2. I think it isn't as clear of a shot, than number 1 is, but is looks cosy. I don't like the third one at all. Its just too dark and dismal for me. I like the rug in number 1 the best

I can't pick.  I went over them several times and feel they are all equally well done.

I do not like this fabric for a dining room. I think a solid or floral is prettier in a dining room.

I find the new room to be stark and depressing. Hopefully flowers etc will give it some life. The new horse hair chairs are in my eye, HIDEOUS!

I find the Clinton dining room to be cheerful and bright and a much more pleasant atmosphere. 

The new private dining room is just ghastly. But that can be changed by the next tenants. The rug is a nightmare!

Both are very nice.  I love Michelle Obama's colors, they stay with the traditional style.   She stayed with the historical scheme.  The family dining room, did not stay in traditional style.  Instead it reflects their personal style, as it should.

They're both beautiful. The first one is definitely more modernized. I love the addition of blue as a symbol for the waters of Hawaii and the chandelier is beautiful (same in both rooms). 

The lone chair in the second picture made me laugh. Is that the "naughty chair?"

I do like the look of the new State Dining Room. The old Family Dining Room not so much but I feel it has to do more with my not liking abstract art.

I prefer the new State Dining Room over the old one.  It's more substantial.

 

The family's private dining room gives me the heebie-jeebies.  

Strive for respect instead of attention. It lasts longer.
