Award-winning interior designer Timothy Corrigan provides inspiration and instruction in the art of French decoration and living with the story of his stunningly restored French chateau. Who hasn’t dreamed of an idyll in the French countryside, in a handsome historic house surrounded by fragrant gardens and lush orchards, filled with pretty rooms for entertaining friends? Welcome to Chateau du Grand-LucÚ, designer Timothy Corrigan’s home in the Loire Valley. Corrigan purchased the chateau in 2004 and set about restoring the house to its full French glory with his signature mix of continental elegance and California comfort. The book travels from the striking entry hall to the elegant bedrooms, as Corrigan offers indispensable decorating advice based on his experiences, including how to live in historic homes in a modern way. A celebration of the gracious symmetry of French classical decoration and architecture amid the pastoral beauty of the French countryside, An Invitation to Chateau du Grand-LucÚ is the perfect gift for all Francophiles.
