Wilson Associates inspired by Ole Miss, Southern style for The Chancellor’s House Hotel

Wilson Associates paid homage to Ole Miss and the historic Southern style with arches, terraces, and balconies.

In Oxford, Miss., the Chancellor’s House Hotel has opened. Situated in a block of shops and restaurants, the Chancellor’s House was designed by Wilson Associates, which drew inspiration from Ole Miss and the historic Southern style with arches, terraces, and balconies.

Inside, the lobby has a residential look with a fireplace and architectural details such as the barrel vaulted ceiling. The adjacent library is reminiscent of a drawing room, with another fireplace and crystal chandeliers.

The guestrooms, meanwhile, have Juliet balconies and terraces.
