|Eeeeeeeeek! It’s here you guys! 62 days have passed since we bought our new house, our very dreamed one, and we are beyond excited to begin showing you (FINALLY) more photos of our space now, triple yay!A lot of you have asked about this project and where on earth did we find this house, (I know, I still can’t believe it) so now it’s time for a little backstory about it, ready?
We sold our condo a few months ago and started looking to buy a new house near our old neighbourhood. Little did we know gentrification arrived quickly to Saint-Henri (a hip area of Montreal, near downtown), and single homes for sale were an impossible treasure to find or to afford. Esteban and I didn’t want to come back to a condo again, so we opened our options a bit more and started exploring other areas always in the Sud-Ouest.After months of intense visits for almost three months, we discovered the most omg tear down that house down right away options, to 1900’s century heaven houses we couldn’t afford, to this perfect tiny modern home we bought. The moment we came in, I KNEW it had to be ours (cheesy enough, right) but absolutely true. Esteban and I have been very design-ish so you all can imagine our reaction when we saw matte concrete heated floors, black and white tiles all over (legit, all over), natural light coming from every single corner and a split-level distribution that is so unique, we almost fainted, true story.The mastermind behind this incredible project? Marie-Jeanne Rivard, a TV star host of Flip de Fille, and an incredibly talented girl that buys, plans, flips and designs houses in Montreal that is changing lives, like ours. I’ll be forever thankful that we were able to find her (she’s pure magic), that we are still close to downtown in our favourite neighbourhood and that we are making this home of ours our little one for our family.So, our first goal? set this space ours, find the cutest decor and accents and bring our friends in to celebrate! Keep reading, you’ll find lots of info where did we get our colourful picks, like the main star of our living room, the 3 seater sofa Tory from Structube.
