If You Could, What Would You Ask Carlton Varney ?

If you have a question you would like me to ask him, just leave it in your comment.
I will be meeting with him on Wednesday ,
when he picks up his Lifetime Achievement Award.

The Grand Hotel on Mackinaw Island. One of the many, many landmarks he has worked his magic on.

pictured here :
Carlton Varney, president of Dorothy Draper . He was hired along with architect Richard Bosby Dan and Amelia Musser, owners of Grand Hotel, in 1976 to begin to give the 90-year-old landmark a facelift.

    Your work is fabulous.... I would love to carry your briefcase and learn from you!
    I have no idea what I would ask Carlton, I would just want to absorb his talent.
    Thanks for posting to me!

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
