Brazilliance wallpaper: vibrant green palm leaves on white background

Looking back on our trip to The Greenbrier Resort

Hello there!

Back in January of this year, my husband and I took a few days trip to West Virginia. We stayed at The Greenbrier and it was absolutely magical. I cannot wait to return! I found myself looking back on our trip there a lot in the last few weeks.

That is the beauty of travel – it enriches you with experiences, emotions, and most importantly memories. I turned to the happy memories of our trip to The Greenbrier to stay positive during the chaotic last few weeks of August. I thought you might like to join me as I look back on our time there. Enjoy this picture post! 🙂

Dorothy Draper – the designer of The Greenbrier’s current interior – also designed this wallpaper called “Brazilliance”. In this picture it looks like it has pink background, but it’s actually stark, crisp white. It’s beautiful, bold, and very fresh.

And ”Draper’s” cafe is a restaurant honoring her for turning The Greenbrier into the icon that it is today. She bravely chose bold colors and patterns in her work. I wouldn’t decorate our house in this style, but I am a fan of hers nonetheless.

July 4th 1972 dinner menu at Greenbriet

This is a formal dinner menu from 49 years ago. I find it so amusing that buttermilk is drink option.

One of so many breathtaking chandeliers – this kind is shining on The Dining Room, Greenbrier’s main restaurant.

Naturally, I couldn’t leave you without some kind of food picture! 🙂 This is “Greenbrier peaches” – they are grown in California, exclusively for the resort.
