D. Mark Wyant, owner and developer of the Saint Hotel in Charleston, South Carolina, has unveiled interior design plans for the new property. The interiors of the hotel were crafted by Wyant and his wife, designer Lorenda Wyant.
The new five-story, 45-room hotel is currently under construction in the French Quarter historic district and set to open this summer. There will be one 1,000-square-foot rooftop penthouse suite with a large glass-wrapped terrace including a 500-square-foot deck, providing views across Charleston.
Interiors of the guestrooms, featuring a white and indigo palette, are modern and sleek with a touch of baroque, including a white sofa and chairs; bedside tables and a dining table made from Carrera marble; deep blue ceilings; and a white Venetian glass chandelier.The backlit headboards feature a gold-framed oversized image of Vermeer’s painting The Lacemaker extending toward the ceiling.
The lobby will feature nine Baccarat chandeliers, ranging in size from 4to 6feet.Walls of greenery and windows are adorned with 22-foot-tall sheer drapes, a contrast to the natural wood, framed mirrors, and gold accents in the white-themed lobby. The Wyants had three unique bell-shaped chandeliers created for the hotel, each 3 feet tall by 3 feet wide, which are placed over seating areas. Each chandelier is covered in a special Venetian plaster and then coated and finished with ground up metallic gold. Ironwork and crystal light fixtures hang within the arc of each bell.
