A Modern Montreal Apartment Boasts Bold Color Combos — House Tour

Name: Jaclyn Madar
Location: Griffintown — Montreal, QC
Size: 1,019 square feet
Years lived in: 1 year, owned

Jaclyn Madar is an obstetrician and surgeon who just purchased her first real “grown-up” bachelorette apartment. A space with industrial, modern architecture, she decorated it with an eclectic vintage flair… while still having it look pulled together. She’s spunky, stylish and extremely smart, and that shows through beautifully in her home decor. Even better are the bold color combos throughout the white-walled home: A cabinet painted pink contrasts with bright blue chairs and art in the living room. And an emerald green wallpaper flirts with a magenta closet door in the bedroom.

Jessica likes to collect things that remind her of a specific time and place, like the leather butterfly chair she got in Argentina, or the bedroom mirror she found at a San Diego thrift store. All of those mementos combined with eclectic accents — and lots and lots of greenery — are what makes her place special. “The mix of my travel finds with some modern furniture and a ton of plants makes the flat feel cozy while brimming with personality,” Jessica says. “It gives you a much richer connection to the things you have, and makes for a good story as you show guests around your home.”

A Renovated, Modern Attic Apartment in Barcelona — House Tour

Name: Nacho, Irene and baby Ray
Location: Gracia – Barcelona, Spain
Size: 750 square feet
Years lived in: Owned for 10 years

Nacho bought this 1930s attic apartment in rough, raw shape. The old kitchen is where the current kitchen is today. The beautiful mezzanine (that houses the master bedroom) didn’t even exist. After two years of remodeling it solo, he was ready to enjoy his loft “for one.” But then he met Irene, and a little later, a third resident arrived: baby Ray! “It was supposed to be [a home] for one, and suddenly we were three,” Nacho says.

A Designer's Modern Blend in Denver — House Tour

Name: Elyza Brillantes and her husband Austin
Location: Denver, Colorado
Size: 2,100 square feet
Years Lived In: 1.5 years, owned

My husband and I moved to Denver from Jersey City, New Jersey for a change of pace and after getting married the year prior, we were ready to buy our first home. Having lived in small apartments together previously, we knew we wanted a house that had space to entertain and enough yard space for a garden.

We saw several houses before finding this one, and as soon as we stepped inside, we knew it was perfect for us. Both of us come from large families that love to entertain, so the open layout of the first floor really appealed to us. We love cooking, having friends over for dinner and board games, and throwing the occasional dance party, so having this larger space to have friends over was definitely one of our top priorities in choosing a home.
