Norwalk Fabric & Design Trends, Part 5: Greenbrier

This is the last post in my series about the Fabric & Design Trends from Norwalk Furniture (see original post for Utah Style here)...

There were 5 trends presented and I'm elaborating on each one separately on my blog, with images of furniture examples produced by Norwalk.  I've already posted about the "Black is Back", "Luxury Neutrals", "Drum Beat", and "Tongue-in-Cheek Chic" trends.  The 5th trend presented was "Greenbrier."  



Greenbrier
The Alleghany Mountains of West Virginia are home to one of American's grandest traditional resorts, The Greenbrier at White Sulpher Springs.  Founded over 150 years ago and renowned for its exuberant Dorothy Draper decorated interiors, this relaxed and elegant playground welcomes both kings and commoners to its legendary 10,000 acres.  Norwalk takes on this preppy aesthetic with its homage to this grand resort.  With greens ranging from moss to emerald, blues with a decidedly turquoise hue, and purples in shades of violet, these upbeat color combinations are equally at home in your living room, sunroom, or upbeat bedroom."
