The Story

The single vision of a Southern grand dame guides Perry Lane’s art program. Inspired by the hotel’s design, the art collection—eclectic, worldly, idiosyncratic and brimming with sophistication, wit and intrigue—feels as if amassed over a lifetime. The combination of family heirlooms, travel mementos and contemporary artwork imbues the hotel with marks of a richly textured and fully-lived life.

In order to develop an authentic collection from the perspective of a single collector, NINE dot ARTS named the character Adelaide Harcourt. Adelaide, the descendant of a long line of financiers with a penchant for collecting, has lived most of her life in Savannah yet traveled the globe from New York to Paris to Istanbul. A former modern dancer, passionate about literature and visual art, her genuine warmth and hospitality makes everyone, especially artists, feel at home.
