An Invitation to Chateau du Grand-Lucé: Decorating a Great French Country House

  • Used Book in Good Condition
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-Lucé, 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-Lucé is the perfect gift for all Francophiles.

    This is not your typical design book just filled with photos of beautiful rooms and pretty gardens. This books tells a wonderful story of a man who falls in love with a Chateau.
    He shares his story of recreating it into a comfortable and elegant home that he loves to share with his friends. So many good design tips and ideas for entertaining.
    The photography is gorgeous!

    This review is from: An Invitation to Chateau du Grand-Lucé: Decorating a Great French Country House (Hardcover)
    This book is structured to capture life as if one was actually visiting the Chateau. These grand homes were always intended as temporary respite from normal life. Even nobility once had a “daily grind”.

    The Chateau has been rebuilt with such a wonderful balance of respect for history in the places where that counts and appreciation for modern comforts in all of the areas where that matters (after all, who needs to sit on a lumpy couch?)

    Beautiful book, wonderful structure, a great fantasy for all of us!

    This is a must buy book for anyone who love gracious architecture and gardens. The text and photographs guide the reader through the beauty and style of this wonderful home through “a weekend in the country,” where we get to spend 3 days at the Chateau and explore all of the many rooms nd gardens. Totally satisfying!
