This gracious century home located in Montreal’s Lachine borough had outgrown its closed-off rooms and once-trendy finishes. Designer Mélanie Cherrier envisioned a much more sophisticated future for the space, with belle epoque checkerboard floors, unpainted wood accents and crystal chandeliers in the kitchen. One year and $800,000 later, she achieved just that for homeowner Karine Borris and her four children. “I opted for a French style, since it’s classical and simple at the same time,” Mélanie explains. “My goal was to preserve the heritage character as much as possible.” Take a virtual tour of the magnificent century home below.
