Dorothy Draper Designs Going Up for Auction

A few weeks ago, I told you about an adorable little book called Decorating Is Fun!, written by famed American hostess and interior designer Dorothy Draper. She's probably best known for decorating the Greenbriar Resort in West Virginia in 1948, and I just read on Shelterrific that hundreds of furniture items, home accents, and artwork from Draper's Greenbriar are going up for auction starting Sept. 29.

You can already view the catalog of items online, and most of the estimated prices are surprisingly low, particularly when you consider that you'd be buying a vintage piece from a legendary hotel and a legendary designer.

I love the way Draper paired summery white woods with deep forest green, and for some reason, I just think this backgammon table is the cutest. What do you guys think of this look?

Love some of the items, not into others. Although I didn't get through all of the items, I'm very interested in the what $ they are going to auction at.

I love these pieces. They are clean, yet colorful. Simple, yet elegant. I wish that I had enough money and space to buy everything.
