Home tour- A classic contemporary home in Ottawa!














This beautiful home belongs to designer, Irene Langlois. Although her furnishings are mostly classic pieces, she managed to freshen things up by bringing in modern elements through a fresh color scheme and modern pieces such as the leather and chrome stool in the entryway and a Ghost chair in the ensuite master bathroom. Are you drawn to classic contemporary homes such as this?

  5. The black and white details in the bedroom are wonderful. I love the look of contemporary designs, but it's not practical for me and my family. All of the white touches wouldn't last a day!

  14. I especially love the foyer in this home. The Chinese secretary is gorgeous, and the site line from the hallway is simply stunning. The kitchen is beautiful as well, with its white cabinetry and dark hardwood floors.
