Nestled in the heart of Montreal, our most recent project reveal showcases a stunning two-story pied-à-terre condo. Our clients’ vision for this space was clear. They desired a comfortable, inviting, and versatile condo that could effortlessly accommodate family and friends while providing all the comforts of home within the bustling city. Despite the breathtaking views from this beautiful penthouse, builder-grade condos often lack character. Our mission was to infuse this space with the warmth and style it deserved, creating a luxurious oasis that our clients would cherish for years to come.
To enhance the condo’s overall aesthetic and ambiance, we began by incorporating fixed finishes that would set the tone for the entire space. Cabinetry accent walls, a built-in bar, and a fireplace upgrade featuring a stunning natural marble surround were just the beginning. These elements added a touch of opulence and sophistication, turning a generic space into a truly unique one.
We decided to elevate the condo’s walls by covering them in luscious natural wallpaper. The choice of wallpaper played a significant role in infusing character and personality into each room. It served as a backdrop for the carefully curated furnishings and created an inviting atmosphere that felt both warm and stylish.
The open-concept main living space presented a unique challenge – it was large enough to accommodate multiple living areas. To maximize functionality and comfort, we introduced a cozy corner featuring four armchairs. This space was perfect for intimate gatherings with friends or for those moments when you simply wanted to curl up and catch up on emails. It provided an alternative space for relaxation and socializing, adding versatility to the condo’s layout.
The principal bedroom was grand but lacked character, with a long, uninspiring bare wall immediately visible upon entry. To address this issue, we came up with a creative solution. We concealed the plain closet door by building out the headboard wall with white oak wall paneling stained to match the floors. The result? A hidden door that seamlessly blended with the wall paneling, creating a focal point that exuded elegance and sophistication.
The success of this project hinged on collaboration with skilled tradespeople who were instrumental in bringing our vision to life. Several challenging installations were seamlessly executed, exceeding our expectations. One noteworthy installation was the fluted marble tile used to surround a second fireplace in the den upstairs. The corners were flawlessly matched, and the joints were minimal, ensuring the tile’s beauty was showcased without distractions.
In the heart of Montreal, our team successfully transformed a builder-grade penthouse into a luxurious pied-à-terre that redefines the concept of upscale living. By incorporating fixed finishes, embracing the magic of wallpaper, carefully selecting upscale furnishings, and reimagining the principal bedroom, we infused this space with character, warmth, and style. The project serves as a testament to the power of collaboration, creative problem-solving, and a commitment to delivering excellence in interior design. The result is a condo that feels upscale, luxurious, and uniquely inviting—an oasis in the heart of the city.
