    Dorothy Draper Decorating Weekend

Celebrating 6 decades of Carleton!

Dorothy Draper & Company, Inc., America’s oldest established continually operating interior design firm, continues to oversee all aspects of design throughout The Greenbrier since 1946.  This colorful weekend, led by members of the Dorothy Draper Team, features behind-the-scenes tours, lectures, and receptions to immerse yourself into the world of Draper!

In 1946, The Greenbrier needed an upgrade after serving its country as Ashford General Hospital during World War II. Famous New York decorator Dorothy Draper was brought in to restore The Greenbrier to its past glory, and in doing so Draper created a bright, colorful look that has become a signature of America’s Resort.

Carleton Varney arrived in Mrs. Draper’s office in 1961 to work as an assistant in the design department.  One of his first tasks was to accompany the design icon by train to one of her most well-known and publicized projects, The Greenbrier. Carleton Varney was involved with every aspect of the hotel’s design, including bringing it into the 21st century while maintaining the look that Draper created.

During Dorothy Draper Decorating Weekend, join The Greenbrier to celebrates these two icons of design, surrounded by their colorful masterpiece.
