From Montréal to Miami

When Montreal design flourishes under the Miami sun: A Renovation and Decoration Adventure!


In Montreal, design is ingrained in our DNA, and it is this passion that pushed me to take on an exciting challenge - decorating in Miami. The decision to renovate and decorate an apartment in the vibrant city of Miami Beach was an unforgettable adventure, blending the elegance of the north with the effervescent energy of the south. In this article, I will share the inspirations, challenges and triumphs of this cross-border design adventure.


Under the Florida sun


Montreal, with its unique blend of European charm and North American modernity, has strongly influenced my approach to design. By transposing this inspiration to Miami, I sought to create a balance between the chic minimalism of Montreal and the tropical liveliness of Florida. Neutral colors borrowed from Montreal's winter landscape blend harmoniously with Miami's warm, sunny hues, creating a distinctive aesthetic fusion.


Climatic challenges and choice of materials


One of the major challenges of this adventure was to deal with the climatic differences between Montreal and Miami. Materials that work well in Canada's cold winter aren't always suited to Florida's intense heat. I had to make wise choices in opting for durable, moisture-resistant materials while maintaining the design's signature sleek aesthetic.


Fusion of cultures through art and accessories


Interior design goes beyond walls and furniture; it’s about telling a story. To incorporate cultural richness into this Miami home, I focused on artwork and accessories that remind us of diversity. Each object has been carefully selected to tell a story, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere.


Integrating nature into design


To convey this connection to nature in Miami, I integrated plant elements and natural materials into the decoration. Warm woods and organic textures transformed the home into an urban oasis, evoking the calming character of Montreal nature.


Completing the renovation and decoration of this Miami home was a challenging adventure that demonstrated the versatility of design. By blending Nordic chic with tropical liveliness, I created a space that exudes elegance while celebrating cultural diversity. This experience reinforced my belief that design transcends geographic boundaries, creating bridges between cultures and aesthetics.
