The Maison-Boutique Coloniale is an atypical residence in the Plateau Mont-Royal area of Montreal, designed by the owners Michael Godmer of Godmer, who specializes in residential renovations of period buildings, & Mathieu Turgeon. It was designed to be their main residence, doubling as a showroom for Michael’s firm and including a design studio on the lower level. A living portfolio. Throughout the 1800 sq ft house is a careful selection of materials, objects, furniture and lighting, available from local suppliers with whom the designers collaborate (including light fixtures from one of my favourite lighting studios – Lambert et Fils). I love this home because I know how hard it can be to work with a very narrow space – my last home was 10′ wide. (Photographer: Maxime Brouillet)
The brick-like tile in the kitchen area is perfect.
