Rep. Aaron Schock Decorates His DC Office To Resemble Downton Abbey Set

Via the Washington Post:

A blond woman popped out of an inner office. “Want to see the rest?” she asked. She introduced herself as Annie Brahler, the interior decorator whose company is called Euro Trash. She guided me to Schock’s private office, revealing another dramatic red room. This one with a drippy crystal chandelier, a table propped up by two eagles, a bust of Abraham Lincoln and massive arrangements of pheasant feathers. Then, my phone rang. It was Schock’s communications director, Benjamin Cole. “Are you taking pictures of the office?” he asked. “Who told you you could do that? . . . Okay, stay where you are. You’ve created a bit of a crisis in the office.” A staff member then came and asked me to please delete the photos from my phone. So started a day of back-and-forths with a congressman’s office about interior design. Washington has always been more “Veep” than “House of Cards.”
