Gogo is Gaga for: Meredith German

I recently purchased Suzanne and Lauren McGrath's new book Good Bones Great Pieces released this past May. I immediately fell in love with an image of a cleaned lined sofa covered in a Dorothy Draper crewel fabric.  I then learned that the image was from Meredith German's New York apartment designed by Barrie Benson. Meredith and her husband started the amazing resort inspired accessories line, Meredith Wendell, in 2008. Her childhood plays a major role in her design aesthetic.  She was raised by her father and grandparents in and around the vibrant Dorothy Draper designed interiors of West Virginia’s Greenbrier Hotel. 

Just take a look at a few images from her apartment and accessories photo shoots.  Doesn't it make you want to visit the Greenbrier for a little Draper greatness wearing of course your fabulous resort accessories from Meredith Wendell.

Barrie Benson's inspiration boards for Meredith's apartment. Notice the Greenbrier comment......I couldn't have said it better myself :)


  1. Very inspirational! Thanks for sharing another book I should add to my design library. I've already got too many, but what's one more??

  2. Love the color combo's. I need to add this book to my collection.

  3. Check out Suzanne and Lauren's blog. Lauren is hosting a Greenbrier hotel party...


Thank you for taking the time to comment!! I love hearing from you!
