Grand Hotel Interior Designer Carlton Varney-owner of The Dorothy Draper and Company


Jerry and I were lucky enough to attend the Grand Hotel Interior Design weekend with the iconic Carlton Varney. Mr. Varney owns the famous Dorothy Draper Design firm and has been decorating the Grand Hotel for the past 30 years. He is the genius behind all those fabulous rooms! Although he and his team have worked world wide, he is also well known for his design work at the Green Briar Hotel.

I am pictured here at the Grand Hotel porch reception for Mr. Varney with (my right) Mr. Brinsley Matthews, vice president of Dorothy Draper and Co., myself, Carlton Varney and my husband Jerry.

Mr. Varney graciously autographed his newest books.
