Settling In


Bienvenue, to this historic district of Montreal, where in 2004 this was a vacant lot. Located on an exclusive piece of heritage land, and surrounded by mansions built by Canada's wealthiest in the roaring 20's, you will find this very new structure that is just settling in.

Montreal based Interior Designer Scott Yetman is well known for working with light, as evident in the bright and spacious design of this home. Every luxury is evident, but paired down and somewhat neutralized for a modern take and opulence.
The details all come together seamlessly. The trim around this water feature, matches the trim surrounding the pillars. Looking up, is just as rewarding as looking straight ahead. Crystal beading in chandelier picking up silver nailheads trimming dining chairs.

French Antiques, goldend gilded chairs and beaming works of art, Wrought Iron, Traditional Crown Mouldings, and creamy marble are classic choices that rarely fail and always impress. Set upon a gallery white backdrop, and the drama is elevated to a new level.

This wall of family photos all framed in sleek black is a very modern touch, hanging just outside the master bedroom doors. It is a wonderful display of all those cherished memories, without disturbing the quiet calm you long for in a bedroom retreat.

The master bedroom is as calm and soothing as it gets covered in silk draperies and carpet, wool headboard, leather bench, and cotton upholstery on seating. It's like wrapping yourself in warmth and comfort. Just beyond the ceiling fixture above is an interesting arched architectural detail. It also links to 2 very large dressing rooms, a spa like bath and a personal gym.

Limestone exterior, slate roof, and iron detail are inspired by classic French architecture, but enlarged windows and simplified stonework help to create a modern update required for this young family.
