    Default Period elements ground a new house near Washington, D.C.



    Designer Thad Hayes conceived the interiors of a house near Washington, D.C., that was designed by architect Stephen Muse.
    Left: A circa 1820 Japanese screen hangs on a living room wall. Pollack fabric on open-arm chairs. Murano glass lamp from Bernd Goeckler Antiques.





    Two 1920s Moroccan ottomans share the sitting room with sofas and club chairs designed by Hayes, who “kept a lot of air and space around the pieces to let them breathe.” The lamp is a converted 19th-century English vase. Sconces and round and nesting tables from Bernd Goeckler.



    Hayes spent about nine months “detailing and designing the entire interior.” (“We probably had more input on the interior architecture than on most of our projects,” he notes.) Opposite: The dining room. George III shield-back dining chairs, Kentshire Galleries. Chinese figurines, H. M. Luther. Lee Jofa drapery silk.

    I agree. I thought we were seeing the "before" pictures!

    I expected a posed portrait of some blue haired ex-Senator's wife.

    I like the house, but the furniture and the rest of the decor need to go. It does look very old biddy.

    In the minority here, but I love this house. It has amazing bones (cliche I know, but it's true). I would put some light color on the walls, maybe some "restoration hardware" green and blues. I do love it...the archways, the floors, the details are just amazing...I wish I had cool details like this in my house....it's old, but not upscale like this one. I wonder what the outside looks like!

    I like the window placement and the kitchen counter top. The rest is very bland.

    Why are people so scared of proper colours these days?

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    Too neutral/boring. Looks like a hotel.
