Queens' Sitting Room, John F. Kennedy Administration

This photograph of the Queens' Sitting Room was taken in July 1963, right after First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy's redecoration of the room. Located on the Second Floor of the Executive Mansion, this sitting room is adjacent to the Queens' Bedroom. Mrs. Kennedy added the dark blue and white cotton wallpaper and black and gold furniture and was the previous owner of the tea table at center. Mrs. Kennedy left the tea table at the White House upon her departure. To this day, the Queens' Sitting Room has retained its Kennedy-era decor.
