New House Near Washington, D.C.

A soft palette was used throughout the house. A circa 1820 Japanese screen hangs on the living room wall.

Golden Sunburst mirror above the fireplace. The French bronze fire screen is circa 1930s.

Two 1920s Moroccan ottomans share the sitting room with sofas and club chairs designed by Hayes. The lamp is a converted 19th-century English vase.

George III shield-back dining chairs. Chinese figurines.

The 1935 chairs in the breakfast area were designed by Lucien Rollin.

The diversity of the pieces gives the spaces “more of an irregular rhythm,” says Hayes. A banquette runs along a wall of the conservatory.

Joan Miró’s Femme Mangeant Une Pomme, 1931, hangs over the master bedroom fireplace.

Hope you enjoyed this tour. Let me know!
