THE BLUE ROOM

You can say you have arrived, or at the very least your home has when its rooms have their own names, and are famous in their own right. One such room is called The Blue Room, it’s comprised of three parlors on the ground floor of The White House.

(As a related aside, The Blue House is the equivalent home and executive office of the head of the state of South Korea. It’s also the name of the historic Frida Kahlo home.)
