What I Love About My Home


There are a lot of storage places. I got 2 big closets in my room, and there is more in the passage. There is also 2 balcony where I can eat with my boyfriend, make bbq and plant some tomatoes.

Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home


At the beginning, I had just few furniture that I found for cheap and people gave me. With time, and because I like to look for used stuff on internet and in the street, I found really nice pieces that I couldn't live without!

Bravo on the yellow cabinets. It's so different and unexpected.

I hate to make your comments sound like a broken record, but the yellow cabinets are genius.

I don't really like yellow and I am impressed by how much I love the yellow cabinets! They magically look cheery and not garish. Nice work.

Patricia,
I'm curious about the . . . puppy pillow? . . . on your bed. What is that? Want to see the whole thing. Very cute. Love your living room colors btw.

Love the kitchen, the couch and the red lamp against the gray background in the living room!

I'm really starting to love the color gray. I love how you've accented it with bright happy colors. Love the kitchen. The curtains in there are awesome..great contrast to the yellow cabinets. Great job!

Number 8 here http://www.apartmenttherapy.com/ny/kitchen/kitchen-cabinets-in-every-color-of-the-rainbow-143969 was my inspiration for the yellow kitchen cabinet and the trees on the wall.

@pmher : Yes it's a puppy.. I forgot to turn it around for the picture! I'll show you a picture later on ;)

@asf5017 : It's from William (gwwilliam.com) in Montreal. It's the Dylan sectional. Not sure they have it on the site right now.

@LolaDanger : Funny it was that time! I didn't wait for it hehehe.

@ThePinkSuperhero : No IKEA, gwwilliam.com

@Everyone : Thanks!

Love the flat Patyy, great work! I hate yellow, but it looks great in your kitchen. Much better than ours in London, n'est-ce pas? xxxxxx

Finally an entry from Montreal! Way to go! I'm guessing this is the Plateau or maybe St-Henri?
(I've got the same charcoal walls and Ikea "numbers" print in my study. :)

Quelle maison sereine, splendide! J'aime gris et jaune, je le porte souvent dans mes vêtements. J'aimerais aller à la maison à un endroit aussi chaud et calme que celui-ci! Bon emploi! Nous les Canadiens savent vraiment comment décorer!!

I would love to see the puppy pillow too!

Those yellow cabinets are definitely attention grabbing. I have no idea if I like them or not! Or if I could live with them. They are such a nice pop of colour, but if you aren't in the mood, might feel like they are all too much!

Yeay Montreal! I also live in Montreal in the Plateau. Where are the pendant lamps by the couch from? I'm looking into getting some nice pendant lamps that don't require wiring into the ceiling (as I'm a student and renting!).

Hello owlmug! The pendant light bulbs are from IKEA but I made the grey lamp myself. The white one is from «quartier chinois».

The grey lamp is beautiful! Ah! There's a cord set at IKEA... (as you can probably tell, it's my first time living on my own) Thank you!

I think you mean 'colours' in Canada? Lol. Either way, they've been blended nicely here. x
