Montreal designer Caroline Bouffard discusses how she transformed her small family home into a bright and airy space. See what updates she made to modernize the century home.

Caroline focused on enlarging her home by matching the floors to the walls in a bright white. A minimalist kitchen that takes center stage is surrounded by open-concept rooms. The living room was updated with a woodburning fireplace, and trim was installed in the upstairs bathroom. An antique piano that once belonged to her husband’s family is decked with modern art pieces, adding character to the black-and-white interior.
