If you have never been to The Greenbrier in West Virginia, you simply must add it to your immediate bucket list. The iconic resort, decorated by the legendary Dorothy Draper in the 1940s and maintained to perfection over the decades by her protégé, Carleton Varney, is nothing short of heaven on earth! You can read about the history of The Greenbrier along with my visit recap and recommendations here… Needless to say, when I saw the Frances Valentine Fall 2021 Lookbook was shot at The Greenbrier, I immediately wanted one of everything in the collection! Here is how Frances Valentine describes the inspiration behind the collection…
For our Fall 21 campaign we sought out West Virginia’s Greenbrier Resort, home of the unapologetically bold interiors of Dorothy Draper. Bright florals, animal prints, and geometric patterns drench the walls, floors, drapes and upholstery. It’s a kaleidoscope of decor at which you can’t stop looking. With prints and color as the driving inspiration behind our Fall 21 collection, The Greenbrier made for the perfect backdrop.
Dorothy Draper once said “You don’t sell a commodity, you sell joy, gaiety, excitement. You aim at people’s hearts, not their minds.” Too true Dorothy! Too true. What’s a space without style? And what’s style without emotion? So get out there. Find something that makes you laugh. Or maybe cry! Open new doors and find some inspiration.
Let’s take a look!

I adore this!! I’ve always wanted to go to the Greenbrier and I will admit I’m being influenced by this campaign 🙂
These clothes may be new to some people this year, but I owned many of these in the 1960s and early 1970s. I still have some; I’ll need to have them dry cleaned to wear again.
These clothes remind me so much of what my Mother wore in the 60’s, they are charming. The Greenbrier is always a delight to see!

Thank God for people who know who they are and aren’t afraid to share it to make the world more beautiful! Thanks!
The Greenbrier is simply magical. Nestled in the heart of the Appalachian Mountain, it is one of my favorite places to rest and relax. I have enjoyed the Thanksgiving Holiday there and several other long weekends.
Andrea, “Thank you” to you and Carlton…this is the most fun post ever!!!
