Lavishly French

Essentially the opposite of my last post which was modern and minimalist, this home is about as grand, lavish and French as it gets! The French Rooms is available as a location space through lordshippark.com and is two rooms occupying the reception floor of an imposing Victorian villa. Furnished with the finest French antiques, opulent fabrics and exquisite treasures, it's not exactly decor I would want to live with 24/7 but I sure would love a weekend visit - without the herd of cats!

A home in the Laurentians by APPAREIL architecture

What a dreamy, modern cottage-type home that was recently transformed by Montreal firm APPAREIL architecture. Built in 1922 and located in the Laurentian Mountains of southern Québec, this firm was challenged to create harmony between the exterior and interior, all with timeless and Nordic aesthetics.

The new façade is now punctuated with large windows, especially towards the rear of the house, opening it up to the surrounding forest. White was used throughout the house to give a bright and sleek look. Elements such as the kitchen ceiling and the thickness of some walls were preserved, as a nod to the past of the house and its many transformations.

More from Jayme Armour

"I worked with many of the client's existing pieces on this project and took my color cues from the art painted by the lady of the house herself. They were willing to take risks with bold pattern and combining new with the old. I think the result is a highly individual, collected feeling abode that exudes warmth and character."- Jayme Armour Interiors

It's that mix of old and new with the home owner's existing pieces centre stage that draws me to this lovely home. The pinks and blues, the subtle pattern on pattern. It's light, fresh revitalisation. (P.S. I just know I'd get on with the owners if their wine cork collection is anything to go by.)

A drop-dead gorgeous location home

What can I say about this drop-dead gorgeous location home from 1st Option other than it's scrumptious from end to end, top to bottom, inside and out. Every wall colour used is spot on, the kitchen is so spacious and THAT ISLAND!, and I really have no words for that bedroom, ensuite and walk-in closet. UN. REAL.
