Inspired by recent events, in this article we vacillate between the clickbait title (sorry) and lazy content on how to add Capitol Hill chic to your male living space. If there’s one thing Capitol Hill, and also the White House, has in common it’s the brown and gold decor playing off each other, for a classic look. Lets have a look at some items you can get to achieve this look on a domestic level. Disclosure: The links present in this article direct you to amazon.com.

#1 Indoor Flag Pole
This Super Tough Indoor American Cotton Flag by the ‘Super Tough Store’ comes with an 8ft Oak pole and 3ft x 5ft American Flag with tassels and golden metal eagle topper. You can also get a 7ft foot or 9ft pole. If you have a big home office this would be an awesome piece to have in the corner.
A senator-like office is not complete without a bust of some American historical figure. So, lets go with the OG American Mr Washington. This Houdon Bust of George Washington is 12″ and made of Bronze. Images of George Washington abound but the most faithful likeness remains a terra cotta bust created by Jean Antoine Houdon, which is what this bust is based on. Washington was 53 years old when Houdon created the original.
#3 Fancy Pants Painting
Imagine if grand governmental buildings had modern art? It wouldn’t work, you need a gold or bronze framed traditional painting of some great historical deed is required for a mini Capitol Hill office themed room. There’s a few on Amazon to purchase below.
You need some kind of ostentatious chesterfield sofa, love seat or chair. Preferably in brown or black. There are some available on Amazon, however the are pretty pricey! But, then again this isn’t even a serious article.
Obviously an oaken and gilded eagle podium would be a great addition to your living space, unfortunately they are all out of stock.
