Later this summer a dear friend of mine is getting married at the historical Greenbrier, a landmark hotel I’ve been dying to visit since . . . well, since she got engaged. Nestled in the Appalachian mountains of West Virginia, the resort was first built in 1778 and then revived after World War II when iconic interior decorator, Dorothy Draper, gave it a much needed makeover. Infused with her signature use of black and white tiles, Baroque plasterwork, oversized prints, and bold colors, the 682 room resort is still recognized as one of Dorothy’s most famous designs. I can’t wait to witness the Greenbrier in all its vibrant and luxurious glory!
