Timothy discovered a new passion and in just a few years has made first the real estate business, and now decoration and restoration his highly successful career.

The Most Iconic Project:
Timothy Corrigan brought back to life stunning french Chateau. The 45,000-square-foot estate was built between 1760 and 1764. It was first a private home and then a military hospital. By the time the French government sold the space to Corrigan in 2004, it was hardly livable. Corrigan notes there was no heat or electricity. But that didn’t stop the decorator from diving in and putting his own spin on the historic site.
Once inside, you’re completely transformed to another time. While most of the rooms are very formal, the subtle pops of color, whether it be in the walls or fabrics, keep the space looking far from a museum. “I didn’t want the place to take itself too seriously,” the designer said. “We’re not in a museum. The message is, we’re just having fun.
