Calling all Queer Eye fans: Bobby Berk, the show’s standout interior designer, may be taking on a new project in the nation’s capitol.
The decor wiz took to Twitter on Monday to offer his services to New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, telling her “I’m in DC all week girl! Put me to work!”
Hey @AOC! I’m in DC all week girl! Put me to work! “Have time… will work for democracy!”

Ocasio-Cortez was quick to respond to Berk’s offer, telling the Queer Eye star to “swing by our office!”
Swing by our office!
We’ve barely had time to hang anything up, three of my staffers are expecting babies, and we’ve got a bach pad/warehouse type situation out here. ???? SOS!
(The good news is that people are leaving a rainbow of positive post-its on our wall so that’s cute) https://t.co/vOHE6tHuMA

She acknowledged that her office is rather sparse at the moment – which is understandable given her busy schedule of pushing out a progressive policy platform, like her Green New Deal, grilling people like Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney Michael Cohen in congressional hearings, and enjoying labneh and iced tea lunches with Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
But, Ocasio-Cortez did add that her office has “a rainbow of positive post-its on our wall so that’s cute.”
RIP our post-it wall :(
We were told it had to be taken down…
So we moved it inside instead ???? pic.twitter.com/qw3RMfPDeU

In February, she posted a photo of that wall after being asked to move it inside her office. She said on Twitter that the wall “just appeared one day… we left them up, bc it was great to read those little encouraging words every morning.”
Unfortunately, Berk later posted on Tuesday that he was actually busy but hoped to meet with the congresswoman at some point.
Will the post-its wall meet Berk’s standards if he does eventually redecorate Ocasio-Cortez’s office? I guess we’ll have to wait and see.
