Elegant Colorful Home . I’m Garrick and again interior designer welcome to my home in montreal i grew up in Montreal and this neighborhood is really special to me Chelsea place was built in the nineteen twenties and it was designed after the model london terrace houses of the british architect mine happens to be the interior corner of the square which is the most interesting because the floor plan itself is very unique the house is about 5,500 square feet we have some gracious living spaces on the first floor a beautiful living room windows are symmetrical on both sides really allowed me to furnish the room in such a grand manner which.
I love beautiful fireplace in the living room I organized the space with a giant freaky carpet which is very geometric and helps pull the room together and on one side of the room i centered beautiful sofa on the windows and then on the other side i did an l-shape on cat soda i really wanted to play up the architecture of the space and beautiful crown moldings beautiful wolf handling and i will find that adding color to the walls always intensive thought you know I always say to people that it’s so much easier to decorate a room that has color on the walls and you want to paint a common water like half day for me a dining room is really a multi-purpose space in this specific instance the dining room has a beautiful fireplace that’s right in line with the view looking in from the stair hall i wanted to really play up the view i push the table to one side with a dining bond catch I often like to do glass top dining tables because it keeps the space airy and light and also allows you to infuse a room with a little bit of a modern detail the dining room is characterized but a beautiful deep teal green color and again.

I’m contrasting that with a very vibrant yellow on the Bobcat which really creates a little bit of a push-pull in terms of the deck or I actually love the efficiency of this small kitchen the cavalry was all here and my immediate reaction was we anticipate that whole thing black went over the backsplash which is all blue delft I’ll with mirror just to give it more of a modern sense when you come in from the front door you actually enter instead of underneath the staircase the staircase troops up over and around you with a great big palladian window over your head which really was the architectural character that I walked in the front door and I said this is the house I don’t need to see anymore roof but upstairs the master suite is actually a tremendous for him i love it i love bed hangings i love to make a grand statement with the bed only because i love to have a sense of being in a cocoon when I’m in bed and it’s actually one of my favorite places to be when I’m in the help the sitting room is a lovely little gem of the space when you look through from the stair hall it has a pair of french doors looked out toward the balcony it’s really a charming little space that have a small fireplace love to curl up on the lovely gustavian sofa with a great book and light the fire for me that’s my winter room the greatest folly of this house of action of hidden third floor rooms up there I really use sort of like little guest rooms there’s one little room that i call my writing room in that room was a choc panel room had a great friend who does calligraphy work and I said we need to use your talents and some greater purpose and design the walls with him we laid everything out of the panel room and it turned out so well that I said I have to share with the world so when I was invited to cafe immediately knew that I would do a choc boundary the upstairs guest room and wanted to have a little bit of bed hangings a little bit of mystery up there a little bit of fun a little playfulness and decorated with a ton of pillows and I find that a lot of people on a rainy day love to go up there and just sit on the bed and read i think the best part of living in Montreal for me Montreal is such an international place with the French flavor and the international students and it’s just a wonderful place
