The purge and decorating continues over at Boy Child and DIL's, here in their beautiful old apartment in Montreal. The flat reminds me of an old Paris apartment with it's 10' ceilings and lovely cornices and old plaster walls. They just installed these gorgeous dark floors and have moved several walls in order to create a dining room and spare bedroom. They are both careful with their money, never spending what they don't have and over the years they have lived with hand me down furniture and pieces that did not reflect their style. Tracy told me she wanted lots of white and a bit of animal print, hence these 2 recycled chairs I had recovered in a modern icat linen in an animal print. The sofa was a real find. It is made by Biltmore here in Montreal and is equivalent in comfort and quality to a Montauk. With it's feather pillows, it's worth around $4000.00. The beauty is, Tracy's client was throwing it out. She rescued it and called Biltmore and next week they are making her a lovely white slip cover for it. Now it is the sofa she has dreamed of. The coffee table was an old 1980's made in China dark oak pedestal baby, that was also a hand me down. We convinced the Raz Man and Boy child to cut it down and then we gave it a quick coat of paint. And it's perfect for the room. Easy to walk around and to put your feet on.
Today we are heading out to pick up some small bits and to add a little colour to it. I think it looks really good so far.
