Style Notes

Bright, light, modern and sophisticated. The house has been recently remodelled and has been featured in a various design magazines, focused on the way its modern style sits in a 1890s stone house. The main living space is welcoming and colorful, with a kilim rug, white walls and Damien Hirst style contemporary art above a modern plank dining table. We love the sense of character and the tree-lined street, combined with the clean modern take on family living inside.

Montreal, Canada

The island city

Canada’s island city is one-part colonial cobblestones, one-part sparkling-glass metropolis and two-parts the great outdoors, with a dash of French va-va-voom attitude to boot. A festival city, it ripples with activity, from jet-boating and rafting on the mighty St Lawrence River, to the famous Jazz Festival and not-so-famous but equally fun Children’s Festival, both in summer. Local traditions are fun for all the family: wagon rides around the sugar shacks where maple syrup is made, horse-drawn carriage rides and spooky ghost tours of Old Montreal.
