Chic Loft

Tour the Montreal factory loft of designers Alexandre Blazys and Benoit Gérard and learn how they gave it a lounge-like atmosphere. Using dark tones, rich oak panelling, smoky glass and grasscloth wallpaper, they turned a boring gypsum box into an envelope for striking art, and a moody backdrop for entertaining. See how to convert a hallway into a lounge area and office, and other smart designer tricks of the trade.

French Farmhouse Style

Peek inside the suburban Montreal home of designer Rollande Vachon of Moutarde Décor/Design. Suzanne Dimma reveals how Vachon mastered French farmhouse style, updating her old home while preserving its original character. From a neutral palette and horizontal wall panelling to weathered wood finishes and subtle stripes, learn how Vachon perfected each room with classic details.
