Back in the November issue of 2009, Canadian House and Home featured the French styled Montreal home of Luce Gayrard. Gayrard, a Canadian lawyer, has refined taste collecting French styled furniture, and a unique way of pairing antiques with raw materials such as metal and leather. In this home you will see natural colors such as wood tables, mixed with upholstered French chairs with leather, and a pop of red for interest.
The pictures below are of both homes; the loft and the country home. Lovely velvets circulate the room, giving a cozy feeling amongst the collected antiques. A pair of 4 Louis XV styled chairs pair nicely with creamy French Provence style cabinetry. The living room features off white contemporary sofas, and stunning gilt side tables accented with marble. Classic French patterns such as toile grace the home.
