“We spend 90% of our time here, together, so it was important that we were both happy and felt like this was a space we could spend, and would enjoy spending, a lot of time in,” shares interior designer and stylist Courtney Molyneaux. She moved into this 800 square foot live/work loft about three months ago, though her partner Christopher Amat, a professional photographer, had been living in the space for about a year. And because of her interior design background, Christopher let Courtney take charge of the decor when she moved in. The result, however, is a blend of both of their aesthetics, as well as a lovely background for their professional creations.
Describe your home’s style in 5 words or less: Minimal, colourful, playful.
What is your favorite room and why? My favourite room is probably our kitchen/living room area. We just redid one of the walls in the kitchen that faces into our living room and I smile every time I look at it. The colours we incorporated and the objects we decided on work so well together. It’s nice to have that as such a big feature in our home.
If you could magically change something about your home, what would it be? An infinite amount of storage space. Lofts do not come with a lot of that.
Any advice for creating a home you love? Creating a home you love is the definition of work in progress. It takes time. Finding pieces you genuinely love and know you will hold onto for a long time is not easy, but when you do find them, it is so worth it.
