Capital City Flies in NYC-Based Designer to Deck the Halls

The nation's capital is trying to show that it can decorate like the best of 'em, what with the newly dressed rooms on the eighth floor of the State Department building. As part of a collab with InStyle Magazine, designer David Stark was brought in to give historic spaces such as the (above, top to bottom) Thomas Jefferson State Reception Room, James Monroe Reception Room, and John Quincy Adams State Drawing Room a pretty, albeit pretty run-of-the-mill, seasonal makeover. Err, not to bring up a recent sore spot for the Capitol City but, uh, Stark so happens to be based in NYC.
