Joe Biden Gave The Oval Office A Decor Update & There Are Plenty Of Family Photos

It seems new President Joe Biden was pretty busy on his first day in the White House!

In addition to cancelling the Keystone XL pipeline and rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement, he also added some personal touches to the Oval Office decor.

A new video shared via the White House’s YouTube channel shows Biden signing a number of executive orders on his first day in the White House.

He can be seen sitting in the Oval Office, surrounded by photographs of his friends and family.

In one gold-framed picture, the president can be seen embracing his wife — the new first lady, Dr. Jill Biden.

Among the family photos is a bust of Cesar Chavez, a labour leader and civil rights activist. The office also features statues of Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks, according to CTV News.

In addition, Biden removed a light-coloured rug that Donald Trump had used in the office and replaced it with a dark blue one from storage.

The new American leader isn’t the only one working in a new environment right now. 

Justin Trudeau’s stay-at-home office in Rideau Cottage has a huge bookcase that’s jam-packed with personal goodies — including a Harry Potter box set!
