Accurate and 3-D Interior View of White House Rooms. The Oval Office: Architect Nathan C. Wyeth at the order of President William Howard Taft
designed the office in 1909. Named for its distinctive oval shape, the Oval
Office is part of the complex of offices that make up the West Wing of the
The Blue Room: Is located in the center of the State Floor of the White House. The President uses the Blue Room to receive many of his guests, from foreign heads of state to members of Congress. State Dining Room: The State Dining
Room, which now seats as many as 140 guests, was originally much smaller
and served at various times as a drawing room, office, and Cabinet
Room. Not until the Andrew Jackson administration was it called the
"State Dining Room," although previous Presidents had used it for formal
The Red Room: The Red Room
traditionally has served as a parlor or sitting room; recent Presidents
have had small dinner parties here. During the Madison administration,
the room became Dolley Madison's
the color scheme until 1845, when President and Mrs. Polk furnished the
room with a dark crimson French Antique style suite and a ruby carpet.
Soon the "Washington Parlor" became the "Red Room."
The Green Room: James Hoban, the original architect of the President's House, intended
that the space now called the "Green Room" be used as a "Common Dining
Room." Charles McKim renovated the White House for President Theodore Roosevelt
in 1902. In the Green Room, the architect covered the walls in green
velvet and relocated a white marble mantle from the State Dining Room. Remarkable works of art grace the Green Room walls.
The East Room: Ascending from the Ground Floor Corridor, a marble stairway leads
the White House visitor to the state floor level. Off the landing to the
right is the East Room. The largest of the state rooms, it was designed
by James Hoban and George Washington to be a "Public Audience Room." The Yellow Oval Room: There
is another oval room above the Blue Room. This is called the Yellow Oval Room
and is often used for formal private receptions for important guests. The room
has three doors, which lead to the Central Hall, the Truman Balcony, and the
Living Room. Dolley Madison first decorated the room in yellow damask in 1809.
In 1851, Abigail Fillmore got an allocation from Congress for books to make the
room into the first White House library. The Harrison Family continued to use the
room as a library and family parlor and, in 1889, put the first White House
Christmas tree here. The Lincoln Bedroom: The Lincoln Bedroom is a
bedroom on the second floor of the White House, part of a suite of rooms that
includes the Lincoln Sitting Room and Lincoln Bath. Named for Abraham Lincoln
and used by him as an office. The room is best known as a guest room used by
presidents to reward friends and political supporters. When Abraham Lincoln was
president, the southeast corner suite was used as his personal office and
Cabinet room. During the Lincoln presidency, the walls were covered with Civil
War maps.These exceptional
