A conservatory designed by Gerald Smith with stunning Miles River vistas.

Bold Panorama

The renovation of a Georgian home in St. Michaels, Maryland, included a new, half-circular conservatory with panoramic Miles River vistas. To accommodate the room’s shape, designer Gerald Smith created a circular furniture arrangement. He painted the walls pale yellow so the views—as seen from Holly Hunt swivel chairs—could take center stage.
