Born to a wealthy and privileged family in 1889, in one of the most exclusive communities in American history, Tuxedo Park, Dorothy Draper was the first to “professionalize” the interior design industry by establishing, in 1923, the first interior design company in the United States, something that until then was unheard of, and also at a time when it was considered daring for a woman to go into business for herself.
"The Harbor Room" one of the three rooms I'm designing for a Retro 1920's Wedding will be in her honor.
Black and white strips,damask,chandeliers and over sized lamps will capture her signature look.
