Located inside the Municipality of Petite-Riviere-St-Francois and near the ski center Le Massif, Villa Boreale is the ideal getaway in eastern Quebec. The exterior mimics its surroundings by exposing the natural grain of Eastern white cedar, while the black metal cladding creates a stark contrast and modern barn quality. A Scandinavian inspiration can be seen throughout the interior with the sleek white kitchen, concrete floors, and pale wood tones. Each window has been thoughtfully placed to create ample views of Canada's boreal forest and flood the space with substantial amounts of natural light throughout the entire day. With accommodations for 14, the second story loft can act as a master, a playroom for kids, or a place to get away from your housefull of guests.

A black and white palette lets the furnishings and curated artwork of this Park Slope Apartment stand out. Renovated for a bachelor friend of the architect, it saw its original wood floors and brick fireplace painted a glossy white, providing a fitting backdrop for the eclectic pieces within. The kitchen was outfitted with glossy gray cabinets from Ikea, cleverly disguised with bronze hardware that's carried through to the bathroom's octagonal door handle. Other highlights include saddle leather pillows on the couch, a guest room with a multi-tone paint job, and original Rorschach-inspired prints in the master bath.
