Today we have another installment of "The Tented Room", this one brought to you courtesy of Mr. and Mrs. Alan Jay Lerner. The renowned lyricist and his wife were devoted Francophiles, which might explain their tented dining room- a nod to Napoleon and Malmaison. (Mrs. Lerner's family was "associated" with Napoleon. Not so sure what the connection was.) The rest of the home is quite grand and well, quite French. But it's the dining room that really speaks to me. Or rather, seeing that it was Alan Jay Lerner's dining room, I should say it sings to me.
Mr. and Mrs. Alan Jay Lerner.
