It is no secret that I am positively OBSESSED with DorothyDraper and The Greenbrier.
So you can imagine my delight today when The Dorothy Draper School of Decorating formally
announced a one-day decorating class, scheduled for Saturday, April 20, 2013 at
The Greenbrier Resort, taught by Carleton Varney himself!!
favorite bloggers gush and swoon about their fabulous trips to The Greenbrier, always
complete with some pretty amazing pictures. Case in point… check out the first
in a series Sanity Fair posted last week. Poor Skyla… nearly exceeded her camera’s memory card she was having
such fun! I love the details she captured in some of her close-ups (below). I
am waiting with baited breath for more pictures, particularly the ones she took
of my beloved Brazillance wallpaper!
imagine a better way to spend a weekend at The Greenbrier than one complete
with a decorating class direct from Dorothy Draper’s protégé Carleton Varney,
who remodeled The Greenbrier in 2007!
