Simplicity in the interior: getting rid of unnecessary things


Simplicity in the interior of the apartment Ivana

Ivana loves simplicity and simplicity in the interior. She loves the feeling of “empty” space. And this is reflected in the design of her apartment; it is simple, modern and minimal.

Ivana advises all buyers of real estate: “be patient, take your time and enjoy the feeling of “empty” space for exactly as long as you do not pick up furniture to your liking.”

The apartment is decorated in a modern style. Located in the center of Le Plateau-Mont-Royal on Roy Street between St. Denis and St. Laurent boulevards, everything you need is within walking distance. Along with the simplicity of the space, Ivana notes her favorite design elements are large windows and natural light.

Ivana is also inspired by young artists, so whenever possible, she is happy to buy their work.

In her apartment there are many paintings created by student artists, such as Isabelle Dufresne-Lienert, Eloise Ptito-Echeverria, Veronica Santangelo, etc. These works of art not only personalize the decor, but also add a little color to the white space.

Ivana about the design of her apartment:

Style: Simple, modern and minimal

Favorite piece of furniture: Large windows and natural light in my office. I also like my pink sofa from designer Gus and the painting in the living room on the top floor. And I also love high doors. They make the ceilings seem higher than 3 meters!

The main task: to make these two-storey apartments more attractive. This apartment has a lot of free space. There is a large selection of furniture and accessories in the shops closest to the house. Every day, walking along the boulevards of St. Denis and St. Laurent, I look at these interior items in the shop windows, how can I not buy them?

What my friends say: Your apartment is very beautiful and big

Minus: There is no photo of my emergency entrance to the apartment, as it has not been repaired. Sometimes I use it as a closet, but you can find another use for it.

My weakness: Mirrors, paintings and various lamps and lamps. As soon as there is money, I can’t help but buy something new.

Tip: Buyers of new housing often try to fill the empty space of the apartment with furniture or accessories. I’ve made costly mistakes.

Be patient, take your time and enjoy the feeling of “empty” space for exactly as long as you do not pick up furniture to your liking. Don’t get attached to furniture. If it does not fit your interior, it will be better to sell or give it away.
