Prevost — with plenty of help from Christine Werner — chose all European furnishings to decorate the home: there is a Philippe Starck sofa as deep as a bed for TV watching, the kitchen is filled with Italian cabinetry and stainless steel appliances, and the dining room chandelier combines traditional crystal drops with halogen spotlights. Another interesting detail is the absence of curtains. The only window coverings hang in the windows facing the road and in the guest suite — otherwise, walls of glass are left unadorned to take advantage of natural light and the beautiful hillside views.
Just one more modern twist in traditional Potomac. But in the end, who’s counting?
