It’s my last day here at The Greenbrier and I wanted to show you some images of the place that was made so famous by decorator Dorothy Draper (and now Carleton Varney).
Floral prints EVERYWHERE! Floral on floral on floral! And how about those chair backs? So many pieces here that I can see influenced so much of whats popular with the “Hollywood Regency” style today!
Awesome staircase in the main entry- scenic wallpaper, greek key detail, black and white and bold colors.
Dorothy Draper wallpaper pajamas are even MORE awesome. And guess what, you can order them HERE!
Such amazing architectural detail and lighting as well as color combinations (turquoise and red!)
And the history is incredible- from all the famous people who have come to stay (Grace Kelley pictured) to the small details like the china pattern!
Do you just die? Because I did. Especially that hunter green/ coral pink combo below.
Another stunning color combo= coral and light blue and gold (and a gorgeous herringbone wood floor).
The window treatment details are mind-blowing- Draper even draped above the indoor pool!
Such a distinguished place for cocktails.
We went shooting at the gun club and could not resist blurting out some Ace Ventura when we entered the lodge…
“This is a lovely room of death!”
Andrew was disturbingly good with a 12 gauge shotgun. Guess it’s the North Carolina blood. I hit like 8 clays, but felt like someone had taken a 2 x 4 to my shoulder.
The casino featuring tiger stripe wallcovering (hell yes) and even the detaisl in the public restrooms are killer!
A pretty view, but the best view is my little niece’s smile.
Y’all should come visit- there is something so wonderful about the South. The manners, the way men are still gentlemen and the women are ladies and overall outlook on life. The bright happy colors of dressing and decorating are so uplifting and things just feel more proper. I think I would have made a good Southern girl (but marrying a Southern boy who has not let me open a car or any other type of door in 11 years will have to suffice). :)
