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.

#2 Busty

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.
