Plants. Plants. Plants. White walls. Art and Design. This minimalist Montreal apartment is tastefully styled by the talented exhibition designer of the Canadian Centre of Architecture. Designer and co-founder of bureau sacha von der potter in Geneva, Anh definitely knows about the delicate balance between negative and positive space.
Simplicity is the center of Anh's design philosophy; she enjoys the fluidity and the interchangeability of her decor. For her, it's important to keep the space as "a work in progress." After living in Switzerland for more than seven years, Anh had to buy everything at once when she decided to come back to Montreal. She invested in a few key design pieces while shopping for more affordable ones at her favorite stores' secret warehouse sales. For Anh, it's all about keeping it simple and decorating your home according to your personal taste.
