Escape to rural Quebec in this tour of renowned Montreal designer Daniel Brisset's gorgeous house. See how this designer converted the foundation of a 1960s bungalow into a traditional two-storey home perfect for hosting weekend guests. Tour the main floor filled with natural light and forest views, the kitchen with a casual harvest table instead of an island, the cosy guest bedroom and serene principal suite. Trish Johnston shows off a 12-year-old girl's bedroom she redesigned with teenage years in mind. Plus, ceramic artist Michelle Kosoy and glass artist Pierre Bouchard of Toronto studio Kosoy + Bouchard discuss their work, inspiration and outlook on design.
Design, Daniel Brisset.
