Darin LaHood Inherits Plain Old House Office Space

As expected, the last traces of disgraced Rep. Aaron Schock’s ill-fated interior design scheme have been completely wiped away.

“RIP blood red walls, pheasant feathers, and black candle sconces,” a tipster who snapped a pic Friday of the business-as-usual decor awaiting newly elected Rep. Darin LaHood shared with HOH.  

LaHood, son of former Rep. Ray LaHood, won the special election  Thursday to replace the social-media magnate whose house of cards came tumbling down after Ben Terris exposed what turned out to be a career-ending office makeover. Although Schock remains embroiled in controversy, the Architect of the Capitol has apparently moved on — settling on neutral tones as the successor to the flamboyant one’s in-your-face arrangements.

No word on whether this latest LaHood plans to gussy up the place.
