Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Dreaming of a vacation in Montreal

Hello all! I'm back from a nice Easter week with lovely warm and sunny weather! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter too!
Now the nice weather is gone, it's cold again, and I'm dreaming of hopping on a plane to a warmer place. Then I saw these beautifully styled apartments for rent from Creative Flats in Montreal, and now I have to start researching the weather there...

    Don't bother with Montreal if you want good weather. Spring has been... well nonexistant actually. Cold and nasty. Hopefully May will be better but I'm not holding my breath.

    Spring may be shit at the moment, but there is no better place in the summer than Montreal.

    Ok, I trust you! I don't have time or money to go right now anyway. :)

    I'm actually aiming for a little getaway to Amsterdam this summer, I miss that city so much... I've only been there twice, but felt instantly at home the moment I stepped out of the central station. And there is a blog meet there in June, so I'm hoping to be able to go!

    Montreal är säkert en stad att uppleva i regn eller solsken.

    Don't listen to the haters Emma. It's true that Montreal is pretty gross in the spring, every year - it's the ugliest season here - but every other season is beautiful in Montreal, especially summer!

    Awesome to see my city on your blog - beautiful interiors! Super inspiring!

    Montreal är säkert en spännande och fin stad att upptäcka i regn eller solsken. Väldigt fin lägenhet, stilish

    wowww, that apartment is incredible! My friend is moving to Montreal later this summer and we have also always wanted to live there. I have the weather on my phone just so I can get a feel for how they are! I'm going to save this!

    Actually, today the weather is REALLY nice and hot. A bit cloudy and humid, but Montreal is always like that... It's a moody city and the weather drastically changes 6 times a day...

    Spring this year is basically nonexistent right now but Montreal is a beautiful place with lots to see and do. People are very friendly and helpful if you get lost. I live in Ottawa only a couple of hours away and love to shop in Montreal.

    Gorgeous post. Proud to be a Montrealer (although haven't lived there in years). Lots of reasons to visit, but weather isn't one of them.

    I've been living in Montreal for the last 3 years. The city is lovely enough that you forget about the nasty and random weather pattern!

    I stumbled upon your blog white searching for someone who has ties to Montreal and Stockholm, and I love what you have here! I'm planning a 4 day trip to Stockholm at the end of August :)

    Thanks for all the comments! I'll make sure that if I ever visit Montreal it will be in the summer! We have enough of cold and cloudy over here already... :)

    Sam, about the couch, I have no idea, but try asking the girls over at Creative Flats (http://www.creativeflats.com/) who decorated the apartment, I'm sure they have the full info on it!

    This is a very motivating post. I want to dust get up, dust off my butt, then dust off my apartment and get to decorating. Seeing really fabulous abodes, like in this post, can get one going. Hmm, where to begin?! Love it! Thanks from Soleil. xx
