BOOK REVIEWS

AD: If there's one thing to be learned from Timothy Corrigan, it's how to exercise class without ever feeling staid. Corrigan is uptown, East Egg, wear-a-tie-to-work-on-Friday. With each of the rooms in his new book, thought, the AD100 designer shows how to modernize the classics. For anyone looking to sharpen a contemporary edge onto a traditional-styled project, the first step should be taking a page out of Corrigan's book - literally.

Atlanta Homes & Lifestyle: In his fresh book, The New Elegance, Timothy Corrigan, the master of grandeur and king of glamour - discusses how to embrace elegant design that isn't just performative, but truly livable, a guiding philosophy that radiates through every aspect of his business. 

CA Homes: Elegance is the perfect word to describe the interiors designed by internationally celebrated designer, Timothy Corrigan. Eleven diverse houses illustrate Corrigan’s design esthetic in this informative, glossy book. What makes the book especially fascinating are the “interludes” in which he details the steps to successful decoration; these illustrated examples are wonderful templates for anyone looking to update a room or house.  Corrigan is very generous with his knowledge, which can be unusual in the design world.

Forbes: Corrigan has given us his second book which compiles his most recent projects all over the world as well as his own homes in Los Angeles and Paris. Corrigan signature flourishes like fine antiques, figurative sculptures, obelisks, and a finely balanced mix of the formal and informal can be seen in the homes in the book. What Corrigan’s book does is induce envy because there in those pages is the designer’s tony decorating style in impressive settings that include a Haussman building in Paris, a country cottage in the rich suburbs of Chicago, a grand mansion in Palm Beach and an elegant townhouse in London. Oh to be a weekend guests at these places!

Galerie: Is there anything designer Timothy Corrigan can’t do? Corrigan's the highly anticipated follow-up, to his first book, "The New Elegance: Stylish, Comfortable Rooms for Today" (Rizzoli), features a diverse array of projects including a prominent philanthropist’s 36th-floor apartment in Chicago, a Doha palace presided over by the Qatari royal family, and even the designer’s own sumptuous Paris pied-à-terre.

Corrigan’s masterful ability to create spaces that appear effortlessly chic is on full display throughout. “I wanted to illustrate the concept that elegant can be comfortable,” he tells Galerie. “Just because a room is beautiful doesn’t mean it can’t also be livable and practical.”

Organized by project, the tome features 11 chapters each punctuated by approachable explanations of Corrigan’s core design principles, which he says can be adapted to suit anyone’s style. “The goal was to make it accessible for the reader, so that they could go through a chapter and then learn about the central elements they may not have noticed.”

Home Design & Decor: Renowned interior designer Timothy Corrigan has landed on the AD100 list of interior designers on multiple occasions not just because he’s a well-known name, but also because he’s incredible at what he does. In his latest book, The New Elegance, Corrigan tips the scales to and fro as he demonstrates the balancing act so many try to achieve in design- visual elegance and gracious comfort. “Comfort is not antithetical to elegance, but rather its support and backbone.” 

Interiors CA: Through 11 world-class projects, including an LA mansion brimming with Hollywood regency glamour, Timothy Corrigan effortlessly  demonstrates why he's one of the world's most in-demand designers. Between chapters, Corrigan shares his building blocks of successful decoration through beautifully illustrated "interludes."

Luxe Interiors + Design: Just try to find a room you wouldn’t want to lounge in as you page through designer Timothy Corrigan’s latest book, The New Elegance: Stylish, Comfortable Rooms for Today. The volume centers on a bevy of beautiful projects, from an ornate villa in Qatar to an Arts and Crafts cottage near Chicago, plus several of the designer’s spectacular homes. Punctuating the chapters are what Corrigan refers to as “interludes”—mini master classes on hanging art and mirrors, understanding scale and symmetry, appreciating surface treatments (fabric, tile, murals) and more. And while Corrigan discusses the “comfortable elegance” synonymous with his rooms, he also reveals another key underpinning of his work: “Looking through these projects, I realized that the one effect I consistently try to accomplish is an innate feeling of safety. In fact, the notion of feeling cocooned, protected and pampered underlies my whole design ethos.”

Milieu: It's one of the hardest things for an interior design to accomplish: create rooms that are accessible, comfortable, and livable. That is a dynamic that Timothy Corrigan has accomplished repeatedly. The book reveals his ongoing ability to combine a European sensibility with an American penchant for comfort and ease. Apart from being able to indulge in his interior designs, this book also offers practical advice to the reader about how best to establish scale, proportion, and symmetry in our own interiors. 

The Style Saloniste: Timothy Corrigan is one of he world’s most successful and admired designers.  This master’s attention to detail is legendary and his interiors show this refinement and rare finish. In “The New Elegance” Eleven very different and inspiring projects are shown in the book. Houses and apartments (and mansions) are in many very diverse locations, and all illustrate the detail, polish, focus and especially comfort of the interiors Timothy created. 

Inspired additions to the book are the eleven informative ‘Interludes’ design knowledge pages between each chapter. Here, Corrigan and Boodro detail and delineate and outline important aspects and elements of design, including Symmetry, Layering, Drama Lessons, Details, Architectural Details, and Art and Mirrors. These ‘design lessons’ make the book especially valuable to designers, design students, and aspiring designers. The advice is constructive and useful. Studying these Corrigan trademarks…and with the images for reference…make the book a handsome reference, full of ideas and how to execute them.

The Glam Pad: AD100 and Elle Decor A-List designer Timothy Corrigan shares his secrets for creating rooms that are elegant and comfortable, luxurious yet livable.

Corrigan includes advice throughout on how to adapt classic design principles and traditional forms to make them work for busy modern lives. Between each chapter are instructive interludes in which Corrigan outlines the building blocks of successful decoration, with fundamental topics such as scale and proportion, symmetry, architectural details, and working with color.

Traditional Home: Featured in Seen & Quoted column: "Elegance is not something you save for a special occasion. Elegance, like beauty should be part of your life every single day."
