A Montreal Designer Shows Us How to Bring an Old Victorian Home Back to Life

When interior designer Michelle Martel and her husband decided to downsize, they were looking for a turn-key home, but they fell in love with the opposite – a 1904 Victorian home in Westmount, Quebec – and their mission changed. “We wanted to bring this old Victorian back to life and to celebrate its history, while adding a contemporary twist,” Michelle explains. By honouring the home’s original elements and unique architecture while adding her own fresh updates, Michelle has done just that: the old home is new again, and it’s alive with style and character. Bonus: check out the video of this super inspiring space.
