Originally built in 1901, this historic building was purchased by country singer, Miranda Lambert, and renovated into a boutique bed and breakfast. Efforts were made to salvage much of the original millwork and plaster, the entire building was rewired, and central heat and air was installed. Where the original building could not be salvaged, sheet rock was hung where original plaster walls had been, and walls and ceilings were filled out with wood. To preserve as much of the original building as possible, most of the work had to be done in the attic as well as crawl spaces between each floor.

The craftsmanship of the historic 1906 building, once a horse stable and now brought back to life, is the foundation for the restaurant's design. The entire design team was passionate about showcasing the building's true quality and marrying it to a restaurant with the same standard for excellence. The design palette is restrained to ensure the natural bones of the space are truly showcased above all. A simple, natural palette of whites, wood and accented textures creates understated interest and elevates the original character and materials.
