FIRST IMPRESSIONS: A beautiful front door and symmetrical topiaries have great Draper style.
TRELLIS: The Greenbrier required over 15,000 rolls of wallpaper. I think Dorothy would have approved of this vibrant green trellis pattern and intricate mirror.
Speaking of trellis, here's a very sophisticated modern example of using a trellis moulding pattern.
PINK, GREEN, and PALM LEAVES
FLOOR TO CEILING CURTAINS: In a floral pattern - another Draper signature. The Greenbrier required over 45,000 rolls of fabric!
ATTENTION TO SPECIAL LIGHT FIXTURES. This is the other view that goes with the two images above.
ZEBRA: The zebra I have now started to associate more with Carleton Varney, Dorothy Draper's protege and the current head of The Dorothy Draper Company Inc.
BOLD BOTANICAL FABRIC PRINTS
THE DRESK: A bold botanical wallpaper and a "dresk" (dressing table/desk) - I think Dorothy invented the dresk when she designed the furniture for The Greenbrier.
FEMININE: A frilly toile dressing table stool is pure Draper.
BLANK WALLS ARE BORING: Smaller ornamental details like the one on this wall channel draper.
FORMAL BUT COMFORTABLE DINING: A formal and traditional dining area with a bit of color and glitz is pure Draper.
UPHOLSTERED CANOPIES: Lush bedding and scads of fabric
HARLEQUIN: The striking harlequin pattern used in The Greenbrier will continue to inspire decorators for generations.
ESPANA COLLECTION FOR DREXEL HERITAGE. This iconic bureau design is one of the most sought-after draper designs.
VERDANT GREEN, SET OFF BY BLACK AND WHITE. The symmetry of the lamps, horse sculpture and ornate mirror are pure Draper-inspired style.
BIRD CAGES: Draper used these sculptural pieces as accessories.
ADD A TREE: The Garden at Essex House's design revolved around fabulous, oversized, tree-shaped columns.
The Combo - Pink walls, zebra rug, floral shade - I think Dorothy would have slept in here.
