A small space doesn't have to be sparse. Suzanne Dimma shows how an 800-square-foot apartment can be layered with antiques, storage and plenty of seating for entertaining. Located in a historic 1927 building, this flat features panelled doors, original moulding and gorgeous paned windows. Plus, Françoise Méchin Pellet — owner of Montreal antique linen shop L'Atelier du Presbytère — tours her fresh and inviting Provence-style apartment. Finally, style expert Reiko Caron converts a curbside find into a bright, budget-chic foyer seat.
