have you seen dorothy draper’s designs

I know this blog is to be more about my faux work but, hey, what better way to get inspired than looking at eye candy. It keeps the juices flowing and the mind racing with new ideas.

I would love to find as many colored photos of her work that I could.  After looking at her work and reading about her style, makes me realize you don’t worry about what others think, say or do.  We each have our own styles. Let your personality shine in your home and if it makes  you happy that is what counts the most.

The link below is 3 different apartments designed by Dorothy Drape. That style defiantly brings back memories, but at least it doesn’t have the plastic on the couches.

Dorothy Draper’s Interior Designs – Legendary 1940’s Designer Dorothy Draper – House Beautiful.


Museum of the City of New York : The High Style of Dorothy Draper.

::Surroundings::: Top Design – Another Top Designer – Dorothy Draper.

This is a book that I really want just wish that it was filled with colored photographs instead of black and white.
