The Obamas' summer house is more confusing than chic

Barack and Michelle Obama

are the epitome of a power couple.

They’re successful, they’re

fun, they’re fierce and their

relationship is impenetrable.

Given how absolutely perfect Barack

and Michelle are, people were naturally

confused when they came across photos

of the couple’s Martha’s Vineyard house.

 Though the house is about as garish and

lavish as you’d expect a former president’s

house to be, it’s also, well, kind of ugly.

“the whole point of cape cod/martha’s

vineyard/nantucket is for rich people to

pretend they’re rustic by staying in cute

stained shingle whaling shacks. this is blasphemy,”

Twitter user kathbarbadoro said.

In the photos that kathbarbadoro

shared of the Obamas’ house, you

can see the “ugly ass exterior”.

as well as a living room, a bizarre

kitchen and what appears to be a

room with only a circular couch in it.

Kathbarbadoro’s tweet about the Obamas’

house, which has nearly 8,000 likes, made

people just as angry as she is.

“All that square footage and not one place

to actually spend time in. It looks designed

to discourage anyone from lingering. Like

hostile architecture but indoors”.

“I love to hang out in my special room

that has no furniture except for one of

those weird super uncomfortable round

couches,” another person joked.

According to SFGate, Barack and Michelle

bought the “peculiar” Martha’s Vineyard

house in 2019 for nearly $15 million.

“A stark white color palette dominates the

interiors, which lack any real personality,”

the website said of the home at the time
