Given her tendency to rail against presidential tradition, one would expect Michelle to have some very opinionated White House decorating preferences as well.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) June 22, 2011
First Lady Michelle Obama is more likely to be spotted about town sporting a baseball cap than a proper business suit, according to Newsweek Magazine, and she is more fond of shopping at the discount racks of the local mall than at some trendy upscale boutique. Indeed, it’s all part of her master plan to construct a normal “life inside the (White House) bubble.”
Given her tendency to rail against presidential tradition, one would expect Michelle to have some very opinionated White House decorating preferences as well. Rather than the stodgy antique style her predecessors have adopted for, it’s more likely her sitting areas would be furnished with contemporary trundle daybeds as opposed to boring formal settees. And to help the average consumer find really stylish daybeds with trundles, Home and Bedroom has added to their line of Fashion Bed Group Daybeds.
Titled “Michelle Obama: The White House Rebel,” the Newsweek article stated, “Michelle Obama laid down her markers quickly …. The White House was not going to imprison her, the media were not going to own her, and she would not be driven by external expectations.” That means that while her husband Barack Obama may still be giving press conferences from the staid blue empire room, the First Family’s private quarters have likely been given the Michelle modern treatment. In fact, given her penchant for discount racks and her recent appearance in a $29 Gap dress, it wouldn’t at all be out of character for her to have updated the Oval Office bedrooms with Fashion Bed Group daybeds and Hillsdale Furniture daybeds.
Since her husband took office, Michelle’s decision to “choose a couple of politically comfortable issues and stay out of the glare of the political spotlight” has taken some by surprise, but Michelle is unconcerned with America’s perception of her. She’s fully embraced her signature issue, childhood obesity, without regard to public feedback. As the Washington Post recently reported, in her cover story for the health and wellness issue of Amtrak’s Arrive magazine she declared, “When it comes to our children’s health and well-being, I think we should be ambitious.”
The key to combating obesity may be as simple as regularly getting a good night’s sleep. The National Sleep Foundation quotes a sleep expert as saying, “The level of leptin [an appetite stimulating hormone] falls in subjects who are sleep deprived, which promotes appetite. It suggests that at least one factor in obesity can be sleep deprivation.”
Michelle is also a firm believer in setting an example for the obesity-fighting measures she advocates. When she discovered her daughters’ body mass indexes were rising, she quickly took action. As MSNBC reported that the time, “The first lady said that over the next few months she made some small changes that got her daughters back on track.” Chances are she’s taken the same proactive approach to their getting a solid night’s rest, and a trundle daybed with pullout space for Malia and Sasha’s friends to sleep over on won’t cramp her individual style.
