How a Minimalist and Maximalist Compromised in This Whimsical Montreal Home

As a child, Tinka Markham Piper was constantly moving. Her father worked as a foreign correspondent for the New York Times, which meant her family lived across the globe: Vietnam, Lebanon, Greece, Spain, Germany. “For me, I was always about making a home wherever we were,” says Tinka, who now helps people in moments of major life transitions organize their homes through her company, Solve My Space. No longer a nomad, Tinka lives with her husband, a McGill University professor, and two children in a luminous, Scandinavian-inspired house in the Plateau. But transforming the former quadruplex, built in 1893, into a family home was no simple task.
