President Donald Trump’s living quarters in his new residency at the White House must be pretty lonely: though Melania Trump has reportedly planned to add her own glitzy touch to the couple’s presidential pad, the first lady has moved back to her $100-million New York City penthouse in Trump Towers with their ten-year-old son Barron.

The 45th president of the United States was living without his family at the White House, where he’s beginning his first official week of work. He wasn't far from family, however: Trump’s eldest daughter Ivanka Trump moved her own family to Washington, D.C., to be near her father during his years in office, following the appointment of her husband Jared Kushner as the president’s senior advisor.

Trump has already made himself at home, decking out the Oval Office with gold drapes and a bust of Teddy Roosevelt, prominently placed on one of his bookshelves, pool reporters said Friday night.

Meanwhile, the New York billionaire has continued playing the role of real-estate mogul in his new position, designating spaces in close proximity with his oval office to some of his most loyal advisors. Kushner was working out of one of the closest rooms available in the White House to the president’s main office. Reince Priebus, former chairman of the Republican National Committee who Trump appointed as chief of staff, was working slightly farther away in the official chief of staff office. Priebus’ office was notably larger than Kushner's, however, complete with a fireplace and a large conference table.

Trump's White House was expected to be home to the first lady and first son soon enough. The two will reportedly move after Barron's school year in New York was completed, though it remained unclear exactly when the first family would permanently live together again. Trump has previously said the two will relocate to D.C. "very soon."

"Like any parents they are concerned about pulling their 10-year-old son out of school in the middle of the year," Jason Miller, Trump’s former transition spokesman, told CNN. "We would also appreciate the same privacy and security considerations given to previous First Families with regard to minor children be extended to the Trumps as well."
