Our new place: The before pics

^ We bought our new old place in Montréal from a woman who lived there for 49 years (!).
The entry and blue door is now landmarked in this historic neighbourhood and mostly untouchable.

^ Super-amazing volume (i.e. 12-foot ceilings); the carpet will go. The thought is to paint the stairs + add a runner.

^ Looking back toward the front door.

^ Original living room moldings — possible to use 3 colors to intensify the details — or drench it in a single colour; much more modern. Carpet removed to reveal original wood floors. The valences have been retired, naturally.

  1. ^ Looking from living room into the study. 2. The study with fireplace 3. from study looking back at living room. Carpet stripped, wood beams stained lighter/matte or painted.

^ Dining room with mahogany beams. Stain lighter? Paint?

^ A very “before” kitchen. Incredible light… drawings to come. Inspiration is a British “conservatory”– style kitchen…. wine-coloured cabinets, soapstone counters.

^ Primary bedroom with groovy coved ceilings.

^ Six-sided room is one of the three additional bedrooms upstairs. Jack-and-Jill bathrooms have original claw-foot tubs.

^ Greg’s future office… needs love. Spare bathroom and view back to stairwell.

Up next: kitchen renderings and full decor scheme 🙂
