Dorothy Draper Collection

Dorothy Draper is America’s original interior decorator. Her work on behalf of such institutions as New York’s Hampshire House, The Carlyle, San Francisco’s Mark Hopkins Hotel, Hollywood’s Arrowhead Springs Hotel and West Virginia’s Greenbrier Hotel exemplified her as a pioneering businesswoman and the most famous decorator of the 1930s and 40s. Draper’s style is big and bold. She invented Modern Baroque with oversize plaster work and dramatic use of vibrant color. Carleton Varney, a protege of Mrs. Draper, is the owner and president today of the legendary design firm, Dorothy Draper and Company. Mr. Varney perpetuates Dorothy Draper’s design philosophy: “bright colors and the rejection of all that is impractical, uncomfortable and drab.”
