(These photos are all from The Greenbrier, while she did a lot more than just this hotel it is the one space of hers that is the most photographed and available in color)
I often refer to her work and love to read about her. Her confidence inspires me. Her ability to pair color, pattern, and a little bling is something I will always admire. Last semester one quick homework assignment was to pick a designer that inspired me and write a quick bio, pick a color pallet and turn it into a modern day design (no budget, time schedule or specific clients needs to meet, this was solely inspiration based) Of course I picked Dorothy Draper and her eclectic style.
Here are the fabrics I pulled together
And here is the space I pulled together based on the inspired fabrics
Tell me, what inspires you?
