The Mews was originally designed by Eccles D. Everhart as the stables for the Gray family’s estate, although it never lodged horses. In honor of Everhart’s work, one of the six new suites will bear his name. Each of the guestrooms will feature new custom furnishings, fabrics, wall coverings, carpets and finishes and exude guest comfort with luxury linens, down feather comforters and Molton Brown amenities.

Sure to be a guest favorite will be the Silo Suite which is a two-level suite with a round living area on the first level and a round bedroom on the second level with a connected staircase. The original curved thick and textured walls are powerful yet soft at the same time. The Louie Baker Suite will also not disappoint with its presidential bathroom featuring a soaking tub, oversized “tortoise shell finish” porcelain tile floors and a large specialty shower.
Sims Patrick Studio, an Atlanta-based interior design firm, has succeeded in keeping the original French Normandy style architecture of the Mews while infusing it with the spirit of the Estate’s Manor House by selecting the types and quality of materials that were used in the Manor House as the palate of materials used at the Mews.
“The best way to describe our thinking and inspiration might be that if the Manor House is the living room of the property, the Mews is the Den!” said Libby Patrick, President of Sims Patrick Studios.
