Some of my best ideas for DIY projects, home decor, or recipes come from experiencing new things and visiting new places when we travel, especially boutique hotels! I figured we could all use a little inspiration in between actual getaways, so I’ve decided to start a new series called Travel Tastefully, so we can explore new pretty places together until we actually get to go there ourselves one day. We gotta dream big, right?!

I thought it would only be fitting to start with a place I love from back home: The Greenbrier in West Virginia. It’s about as eclectic as they come, but it’s got every pop of color you can dream of! Not to mention the play on patterns is trending now more than ever, and it’s been around to see just about every President there was, and the interior was designed by THE Dorothy Draper!…

It really is a magical place, and I’m not just saying that out of my bias since I call West Virginia home. The setting is picturesque with the mountains behind it, and the bold colors, stripes, and patterns is enough to make me want to burst!

The last time we visited my Dad took Jared and I for dinner on the way to a ski resort, but it was already dark so we didn’t get to snap any good photos in a hurry. We’re headed back this Summer after my high school reunion, so I plan to make sure you get the full dose of it with our travel recap then!Travel Tastefully: The Greenbrier in West Virginia - Sugar and Cloth Travel Tastefully: The Greenbrier in West Virginia - Sugar and ClothTravel Tastefully: The Greenbrier in West Virginia - Sugar and Cloth

At first you can’t quite decide if it’s totally amazing, or the tackiest thing you’ve ever seen. That might be why it’s been a backdrop for high fashion photo shoots for quite some time, but it’s making it’s comeback now for sure.

Do you all have any absolute favorite boutique hotels or to visit? I’d love to know! I’m now constantly on the hunt for cool new places, so be sure to share the scoop!

    This place is GLORIOUS!!!!! Rob and I love the Azalea Inn in Savannah GA. It’s the only B&B with a pool and all the rooms are just decadently decorated. Breakfast is made by the innkeeper every morning and it’s not just bagels and fruit either. When you come home at night, there’s cookies waiting for you in the lounge. Home made of course!

    • This place sounds awesome! We’ll have to check it out!

    And you can buy yourself a dress and shoes in the mall in the hotel. Absolutely perfect! Gentlemen can’t wear jeans in the casino, either boys!
