A Mid Century Home With a Modern {Twist}

Photography by Agnus McRitchie via Style at Home Magazine. 

Only have 1,000 square feet of space? No problem! Montreal resident and design guru Sylvie Rochon shows us that even with space constraints, transforming your home into something magical, modern, eclectic and memorable is as "easy as pie". Full of bright colours, pop art, and dashes of mid-century Danish furniture, this apartment screams personality. Some of the stand-out pieces to me include the turquoise chandelier, orange lacquer coffee table and colourful throw pillows. The kitchen, although humble, ties in wood elements beautifully - through the counter, wooden bench and mid-century Danish sitting chair. Mirrors on the walls not only add decoration but make the space feel more open and inviting. Be sure to check out Sylvie's vintage store {Spoutnik} which is full of iconic pieces, funky gems and items from private sales. I've heard that it's one of the best of its kind in Montreal! Which room is your favourite? Which piece is your favourite? Have a beautiful Tuesday!
