The Greenbrier Resort, W. VA.
Men may come here for
golf, golf, golf,
ladies get to experience
the ambiance of
interior designer whose ideas bloom like
throughout one's stay.
Draper favored exuberant colors and bold patterns. Even today (Schumacher has kept all of Draper's fabric designs specifically for The Greenbrier), with her eye-popping colors, oversize prints, and her touch for flamboyance still flourishes from draperies, walls, furnishings, floors and rococo scrollwork. Draper defined The Greenbrier with sophistication. Her designs also include slipcovers, house plants and black and white marble floors.
What is so adorable to watch are the little Greenbrier camp guests
following their camp leader
who is telling them not to step on the huge 24 " x 24" white tiles.
Oooooh, their little legs can't help
touch those huge white marble squares
no matter how hard they try to avoid them.
These photos I took before the Internet was created-!! Each time I return, I never need to take photos of these rooms, because nothing has change since
Dorothy Draper decorating days.
I will feature more of Dorothy Draper at The Greenbrier, once I figure out from my
how to move and place pictures where
Denise want them to go.
