The Greenbrier hotel

Built in 1778, The Greenbrier resort is a design gem nestled in the Appalachian mountains of West Virginia. The 682 room resort received a post World War II revive by the then iconic interior decorator, Dorothy Draper. The eclectic mix of contrasting and contemporary colours with antique and period furniture infused with Drapers signature use of black and white tiles, Baroque plasterwork, oversized prints, and bold colours, the building defines beauty of putting old with new to create something completely fresh and new.
