Every president eventually puts his own mark on the Oval Office, decoratively speaking.

US President Barack Obama recently renovated his office, and it now pays homage to Martin Luther King Jr. and four previous presidents. While the president and his family were away on vacation in Martha's Vineyard, workers installed new wallpaper, a new rug, new sofas, lamps and a coffee table.


Officials gave photographers a look hours before his address to the nation about Iraq.
