Makeover: A Bland Montreal Home Gets A Major Style Boost

What happens when a talented designer takes on a major reno for her spunky sister? A stunning house with a style all its own. Designer Mélanie Cherrier of Blanc Marine Living knew her sister Julie’s home needed to be bold — and a bit spicy — because her style is far from subdued. “We were after un design racé — a racy design, something very sexy but also classy,” says Mélanie. To achieve the look, she paired saturated hues with vintage accessories and contemporary furniture.

Today, the reinvigorated 5,000-square-foot home has shed its former flatness. And with the reno finally wrapped, the sisters couldn’t be happier. “It’s like I’m living in a magazine,” says Julie. Click through and slide the arrow on the images to see the incredible before and after.
