Instead of preparing to hole up at home in New York to ride out hurricane Irene, I wish I had high tailed it out of town. I also wish America had the entire month of August off like all of France. If we did, my dream would be to enjoy the pastoral pleasures of a place like Château de Fontenay. It was decorated by Mlinaric, Henry & Zervudachi who did such a great job, that I don't think I would change a thing. It's perfect. And even more so because they don't get hurricanes in France. Hope everyone has a safe weekend!
