“I think that my role as a designer is similar to that of a tailor. Where he cuts a garment to the particular specifications of each customer’s body, I try to fit each home I design as specifically as I can to its owner's personality.” - Jeffrey Alan Marks. Classic meets Modern with style, elegance and sophistication.
My latest achievement in Montreal. Ultra sleek, modern and a very actual look overall, for beautiful people, great clients and amazing friends.
Black and white vintage look featuring one of my favorite marbles, the most exquisite Nero Marquina.
“There are two things that make a room timeless: a sense of history and a piece of the future”- Charlotte Moss.
Louis XVI chairs paired with an ultra design steel and glass table from Bontempi for a classical yet modern look result that suits very well this Victorian, Neo-Gothic mansion.
"Good food and a warm kitchen is what makes a house a home” - Rachel Ray
A country log cabin should be of intrinsic beauty in its simplicity and, at the same time, a luxurious and sophisticated haven.
Industrial meets bistrot chic with this typical French brasserie look with its black and white quartz tiles connecting with the existing warm honey hardwood floor, brass details and one of those one-of-a-kind AGA cookers.
A very elegant bedroom I did a few years ago in Montreal- some hidden love letters to be found by the next generations.
Classic French style reinterpretation in the furniture selection as well as the custom cabinetry for a beautiful, elegant and chic apartment located in the most prestigious “Le Sanctuaire du Mont-Royal” complex in Outremont, Montreal.
I had this amazing opportunity, right before moving to Western Canada, to design from top to bottom this sub-penthouse in one of the most prestigious residential buildings in downtown Montreal. Modern, stylish and bold were the prerequisites. I will be always grateful to this wonderful family for giving me their unconditional trust.
Simple and contemporary with a twist, owing to the Nevo suspension from Arthuro Alvarez. Love to bring an edge to a room with objects or accents that have a distinctive presence, yet don’t steal the show.
Concrete flooring, all trims, windows and doors painted black and vintage furniture and accessories to bring back to life this amazing loft-type townhouse located in the Ramsay District, Calgary.
Whenever I look back at this interior I did a few years ago always reminds me of why I love so much this wonderful world of Interior Design.
“Function influence but does not dictate form” - Eero Saarinen
This entire house in Outremont (Montreal) is one of my favorite works. I connected instantly with the client, a young, artsy jet-setter from a well-known and established family in the province of Quebec. She would present me with family artefacts like this Mid-century headboard and table lamps and would ask me it we could do anything with these amazing vintage pieces. A blessing for a designer. Love you Sylvie, my little chouchou.
The interiors I create are always full of colour. I do not define myself as a beige designer. These vintage Art Deco Period armchairs are definitely acting as the stars of this colourful living room.
“In a way I spend my entire life stealing from everything- from the past, from cities I love, from where I grew up- grabbing things, taking not only from architecture but from Italy, art writing, poetry, music.” - Renzo Piano
A little tour de force… I’ve been working for these clients and dear friends of mine for over 20 years now. After working on their prized and patrimonial house in Montreal-West for over 15 years, curating the most beautiful antique specimens especially from the Art Nouveau Period and the Arts and Crafts Movement, they've decided one day to sell that house, buy a parcel of an island in Long-Sault, Ontario and built a new house, ultra modern and minimalist without abandoning their passion for antiques. Marrying all these periods together was certainly challenging but absolutely fulfilling.
Classical and modern elements blended together for a crisp, chic and sophisticated result.
This was my pied-à-terre in the Old Montreal District before moving to Calgary, Alberta. A small space that I wanted to be bold and dressed up with Haute Couture elements such as David Hicks fabric with its iconic geometric patterns, Oscar de la Renta embroidery velvet and the most exquisite satin silk from the Fabergé Collection that had been used for the drapes. Mix of gold and chrome with a big walnut dining room table to warm up the room.
