It is a right of passage for every interior design enthusiast to make a pilgrimage to The Greenbrier, the iconic resort vibrantly decorated by the world-famous Dorothy Draper & Company, and I can think of no better way to experience “America’s Resort” than by participating in the upcoming Dorothy Draper Design Weekend, March 1-2! The illustrious Carleton Varney and his team will host an unforgettable decorating experience that reveals an inside view and education on the process of selecting the decor at The Greenbrier. I have already signed up, and I am counting down the days!
The celebration starts on Friday, March 1 with a meet and greet reception. On Saturday, Varney will hold a question and answer session followed by a special interior tour of the Greenbrier with the Dorothy Draper & Company team. After a book signing, the evening will conclude with a reception hosted by the Dorothy Draper & Company team. On Sunday, Varney will hold another book signing before the weekend is complete. These events are available complimentary to registered guests only.
Throughout the weekend, The Greenbrier is also offering complimentary entertainment, including bingo, magic shows, family celebrations, movies, workshops and afternoon tea. Some of the most popular activities include the Casino Club, Mineral Spa, carriage rides, bunker tours, off-road-driving, falconry, and tennis. Click here for a complete list of activity options.

When I set foot in that lobby and saw it for the first time I actually started to cry! The color and beauty was so overwhelming IRL. Marked contrast to things here in Southern California. If you can, you should go.
Love!! I attended last year and loved every minute of it. Coincidentally, we are visiting the Greenbrier during the weekend this year, too, so I will see you there!

Hi Andrea, I had the the most wonderful honor of meeting Mr. Carlton Varney at a talk and book signing in Palm Beach a couple of years ago. You are going to have the BEST of times with him at The Greenbrier! He is as enchanting and colorful as his designs.
