Timothy Corrigan's An Invitation to Chateau du Grand-Lucé, details his against-all-odds acquisition of an 18th century French National Landmark in the Loire valley, in dire need of repair, and subsequent painstaking restoration and decoration, bringing it back to life as a private home and personal retreat, where he loves to entertain.

"Even amid all that detailed splendor, the most endearing aspect of Corrigan's magnum opus is this: Far from being a vanity project or a showcase for his design prowess, Corrigan always intended to share his chateau with others. He is nothing if not a gracious host, and I'm already angling for an invitation." - 1stdibs.com
“Perhaps the best part of the book is that we are given a running commentary of why Corrigan has made some of the decisions that he has…After reading the book, one can only wish that the invitation was a real one.” - Sarah Hyde, Decorex.com
Corrigan’s book goes into detail without sacrificing intriguing candor. That history coupled with capital-M-majestic interiors photos, mean it’s really no surprise that the country manse has become a darling for national design magazines since the book’s release last fall. -curbed.com
