How Manor & Mews Got Its Name
To deconstruct our name for a moment, a manor is the main residence of an estate. Mews originally referred to royal stables (in modern day converted to posh living spaces). Mews also indicates a small street of apartments and shops hidden behind a larger avenue.
Together, both pay homage to our British heritage, promising elegance without pretension. And there is a bit of a play built-in: the sound-alikes ‘manner’ and ‘muse’ stand for style, fashion, conduct, inspiration, and creativity.
