I don’t know a man who doesn’t need his own space. Be it a home office, a workbench in the garage, or something a bit more social—like the kitchen. No matter the location, the point is for it to be the place where he can put his stamp and show his personality. For the past decade or more, these spaces have been known, both affectionately and exasperatingly, as “man caves.” Well, the man cave has grown up and become something just about any guy would be happy to show off.– See the whole post at The Interior Collective.
I’m really attracted to the modern mixture of elements that create the unique style of the interiors in this Montreal urban retreat. Part of the Sax-1 condos brand, there’s a palpable sense of approachable refinement and smart sophistication that has been accomplished by combining smooth surfaces with layers of texture throughout.
Modern, white, mostly featureless cabinetry on the far side of the kitchen helps the clean and utilitarian space seem to recede from focus. In a beautiful counterpoint to the wall of white, the waterfall treatment of the island countertop married with textures from the island’s wooden facade brings a sense of fine furnishings and welcome warmth to the space.
Playing off the smooth surfaces created by floor-to-ceiling glass walls, modern wood flooring and dark glossy interior walls, the many textiles in the bedroom provide a restful and plush environment for retreat and relaxation. I especially like the rough wood of the bed juxtaposed with the minimalist light fixtures.
If a Montreal retreat is in my future, this is where I’d want to be.
