Perhaps her most well known project was the Greenbrier Hotel in White Sulphur Springs, WV. If you have ever been to the Greenbrier you can feel energy and happiness radiating through the walls. Dorothy Draper designed rooms that elevated spirits and made you feel at home. The giant black and white tile floor mixes with it's surrounding architectural elements, bold covered furniture and Blue Canton lamps just prove her point: not everything has to match! Every room at the Greenbrier is divine. In fact, so divine that I have thinking a blog gathering might need to be held on sight next Spring, more details to come, but are you interested!? Today, many are crazy about their entire home matching and having beige, beige everywhere. However, remember next time you are revamping a room take this week's WASP's lesson to heart and mix things up. Perhaps you will be talked about in years to come and be crowned 'one of a kind' in design!
I shall now leave you with a WASP Wednesday fun fact: did you know Dorothy Draper is cousins with another WASP designer? Can you guess who? Sister Parish (whose real name was also Dorothy, WASPs tend to pull from a smaller name pool) of Parish-Hadley!
