After 25 years at the helm of her namesake cosmetics label, Bobbi Brown announced late last year she was departing the company, prompting a chorus of questions centered on one topic: What next? If you thought her first move would be within the cosmetics industry, think again—in March, Brown will open the doors of The George Inn, a gorgeous boutique hotel in her hometown of Montclair, New Jersey.

"I am a serial entrepreneur who loves nothing better than doing things that I have never done before," Brown told MyDomaine. "This project meant that I could bring not only my expertise but my creativity to it as well." That certainly shows—a glimpse inside the boutique hotel reveals Brown's natural talent for interior design and love for collecting and curating vintage décor. Indeed, many of the paintings and accessories are from Brown and her husband's personal collection, creating an inviting, layered, and personality-packed space. Take a peek inside.
