About the Author

In her heyday, Dorothy Draper(1889-1969) was the most famous decorator in America. She had a monthly column in Good Housekeeping magazine and decorated luxury hotels such as the Greenbrier in West Virginia, along with restaurants, nightclubs, houses, apartment buildings, stores, and airplanes. She designed fabrics in the spirit of Brazil, Hawaii, and Spain. She understood the perils and pleasures of furnishing a home, and it was her uncanny understanding of human nature as much as her knowledge of scale, proportion and color that made America trust her.
