. . . and around here, a terrible weakness for perfectly decorated hotels, and the greenbrier most certainly fits into the category -- the intoxicating intermingling of vibrant colours and patterns, leaves and florals and elegant drapery, gilded flourishes and enchanting chandeliers are just the thing for these overcast autumn days . . .

Wow that looks amazing. Such beautiful and saturated colours. Definitely a bookmark (we're moving soon and I get to totally redecorate my room.... woot!)

I love all of the color in this lovely grand hotel. What a brilliant use of papers, paint and prints. I am also rather fond of the carpets used. Like a trip back in time.

There is just something about green at the moment for me; a dress, a rug, an opaline vase, it's calling to my soul.

The green chandelier is quite unusual.
