Escape to rural Quebec in this tour of renowned Montreal designer Daniel Brisset's gorgeous second house. See how he 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.
See more photos of this home in our April 2010 issue.
Design, Daniel Brisset.
