Homes Inspired by Icons: The Classic Elegance of Hillary Clinton
Most people are aware that Hillary Clinton is a driving force in today’s political arena, but what many don’t know is that she also has a flair for interior decorating. She even considered having her own home decor show after her husband Bill Clinton left public office. How would a home influenced by Hillary’s classic elegance look? I’ve listed down some of her unique traits as translated in the design aesthetic of different rooms:
Stately Elegance in the Living Room

Hillary absolutely loves yellow – and for good reason. The vibrancy immediately conveys a touch of freshness reminiscent of spring. Using this as the principal color of your living room creates a lively yet cozy atmosphere. Remember to follow the 60-30-10 color combination when using such a striking hue. Balance it off with hints of white, or even gray or black, to soften the glow of yellow.
Cosmopolitan Class in the Home Office
Hillary exemplifies traditional Americana elegance as well as the cosmopolitan sensibility of one who has seen the world. Her many travels have opened new horizons for her, and this exposure is reflected in her surroundings, bringing a sense of her class and style.

A great home office that reflects Hillary’s journeys across the globe would have stylish travel-inspired décor. From a vintage travel chest repurposed as an elegant coffee table to exotic light fixtures that evoke the beauty and mystique of faraway lands to a vintage globe used as a centerpiece, your home office can exhibit the same Clintonesque aura that is sophisticated and smart.

Simplicity and Minimalism in the Sitting Room
One of Hillary’s lasting contributions to the White House is her renovation of the sitting room. The design doesn’t necessarily have to exude the same grandeur as the living room. You can simply surround a small wooden table with cream or white armchairs. The important thing is to decorate it with colors and textures that offer a feeling of tranquility. Invite guests into the room, serve some delicious iced tea, and catch up on each other on a relaxing afternoon.
