From the Old Neighborhood

Gorgeous and historic sites were as close as my backyard growing up near the designated National and Historic site of The Dearborn Inn.
Near by is the Ford Motor Company where my father worked for 33 years.

The Inn was built by Henry Ford, the inventor of the automobile and his son Edsel. The hotel's design  was created by  architect Albert Kahn in 1931. This November the beautiful Georgian style hotel will celebrate it's 82nd

Having this gorgeous place in my neighborhood growing up was very special and over the years my family and I have had the privilege of staying here many times on visits to Michigan.
 The influence of it's grandeur always encouraged me as a decorator.
 Over time, renovations have taken place but the original character and style have been preserved and maintained.

In the fall of 2011,  I had the opportunity to visit again and took these pics to share. From the beautiful chandeliers to the black and white tile floors and the outside gardens, every inch is elegant.
Next fall we will stay in this gorgeous Inn once again and I look forward to the visit.

The reception area with beautiful grand piano. I was honored to play this gorgeous instrument while on my stay.
The keys feel like silk and the black finish looks like glass.

Beautiful sun rooms flow outside to gorgeous gardens.

Sitting  and living areas perfect  to relax with family and friends.

Stunning ceilings with grand chandeliers.

Comfortable living rooms overlooking the fireplace with a beautiful painting of Henry Ford.

Gorgeous flower arrangements
grace large gathering tables.

The Dearborn Inn,
a beautiful place to stay, visit and enjoy
the history of days gone by in a special place I called home.

See you next time.
