Blue and White Monday

5.21.2012

A page from my newest interior design book and the cover below



The photographs in this book of The Greenbrier and The Grand Hotel, are incredible.  Carleton Varney redecorated both, and he includes interesting information about the historic hotels. 



This is a photo from the book of the casino bar at The Greenbrier.  

Kristen, of the blog Steel Magnolia, visited The Greenbrier for her anniversary and sent me this picture to show the unbelievable scale of the temple jars.  You can see photos from her trip here.  

I changed the prints in my breakfast room this weekend.  I didn't take a photo of the opposite wall, but there are four different prints there.  What was there before were ginger jars in different colors.  I loved them, but it's fun to have a change!  And I'm liking the more limited colors in this room.  Happy Monday!

Your breakfast room is marvelous. I have still never been to the Greenbrier and I don't live all that far away. Shame on me. I want to visit soon.

How deep is your library and how do you find such great new books? Each book you mention is so interesting. It must be great to be able to create art on a whim.

Dear TPP,
where might I purchase the amazing ginger jars and bowl (flower pot?) that graces your kitchen table? I would like to copy this display for my dining room.

I love how the white mats / frames of the prints pick up the wainscoting. Cool!! Cheers, Loi
