WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama likes to say the White House is the "people's house." Now, the people are getting a look at the rooms where he lives.

Exclusive photos published by Architectural Digest are revealing private areas on the second floor of the White House that Obama and his family call home.

The rooms were decorated by Los Angeles-based interior designer Michael Smith. Smith also decorated Obama's Oval Office.

The first lady says Smith made the White House feel like a home for her family.

Decorated in beige hues, the master bedroom has an antique canopy bed made up with fine Italian linen. Identical, footed tables on either side of the bed, one bearing family photos and one stacked with books. Matching, upholstered chairs and a sofa make a sitting area.
