You Won’t Believe This Is A Rental Apartment!

Decorating a rental apartment comes with its own set of challenges. Many landlords won’t let their tenants add so much as a coat of paint to their apartment – but when a pair of world-class designers are the renters, things change. This was the case when architect Maxime Vandal and designer Richard Ouellette of design firm Les Ensembliers moved into a 2,500-square-foot rental apartment in Montreal. Their landlord gave the couple carte-blanche to redecorate the interior, which resulted in a six-week project. “We’re our own worst enemies,” says Richard. “We can’t live in not pretty.” Take a tour of the Golden Square Mile apartment that pushes the boundaries of what a rental apartment can be.
