Within hours of being sworn in as president of the United States on Friday, Donald Trump immediately started making decorative changes to the White House.
The Oval Office was redecorated for Trump, as gold curtains were installed behind the Resolute desk, replacing the crimson curtains that were installed under Barack Obama tenure.

In addition to the curtains being changed, the real estate mogul also got rid of a huge, circular rug from Obama's presidency that featured quotes from leaders including, MLK Jr. and four former presidents.
Its replacement appears to be the sunburst gold and yellow rug with garland edges designed by Laura Bush during her husband's presidency, as it's said Bush requested to have one that expressed his spirit of optimism, ABC News reported.
It appears that the couches inside the historic office were also replaced, as they are now brocade and no longer grey suede, CNN reported.
The billionaire is widely known for loving gold accents and features when it comes to interior decorating, as both his office and homes around the country feature it throughout.

But it's unclear if he plans to bring more sweeping changes to include gold fixtures inside 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
In a 2015 interview with People prior to the election, Trump said that he wouldn't change too much inside the building.
'If I were elected, I would maybe touch it up a little bit, but the White House is a special place,' Trump stated. 'You don't want to do too much touching.'
It is common for a newly elected president to redecorate the Oval Office as well as other parts of the White House, which is worth $397.9million.
Though the First Family is allowed to make changes within the White House, there are rooms inside the historic building that are untouchable, such as the Lincoln Bedroom and public spaces like the state dining room and Green Room.
Changes that are sought to be made to any of those rooms have to be approved by from the Committee for the Preservation of the White House, as the White House is a living museum that contains hundreds of years of American History.
It has been the residence of every US president since John Adams in 1800.
As Melania and her husband are likely preparing a list of changes they wish to make for the living quarters, it is unclear if the family will pay for the renovations or if they will use the $100,000 per term that's allocated by Congress to redecorate the White House.
Up to $100,000 of taxpayer money can be used by the First Family to make changes inside, but they are not obligated or forced to use it. The Obamas made a huge statement when they did not use the money or accept donations to redecorate the White House, as they paid for it out of their own pocket.
Trump has followed through with one of his promises, as he returned a Winston Churchill bust that Obama had removed to be replaced with a bust of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
