U.S. Senator Bond and his wife Linda wanted a "sophisticated cottage-style look" for their Chevy Chase, Maryland home. With the help of Tone on Tone (antique store in Bethesda, Maryland), Senator Bond and his wife added Swedish antiques, gray heavyweight silk Holly Hunt drapery, and light gray wall paint. Built in 1937 as a gatehouse, the Colonial-style home's new decor is featured in Home & Design. More info below the jump...

Among the amazing added features: early 19th-century columns (found at an Annapolis, Maryland antique show) and window frames that were once part of a Swedish castle. U.S. Senator Bond had the floors bleached and whitewashed. All the silver is from Senator Bond's mother in Kansas City, Missouri. Old Paris china was collected by both sides of the family.
