The École de Pensée men's fashion boutique, located between the Mile-End and Outremont neighbourhoods, fits in well with these popular Montreal neighbourhoods. With a concrete counter poured into the structure and a neutral and minimalist aesthetic, the decor perfectly reflects the style and values ​​of this business.

This list wouldn't be complete without mentioning this pretty cafe whose design attracts visitors from all over. Its pastel pink walls and forest green coffee counter are real Instagram stars. The equally pink cushioned benches harmonize perfectly with the colour of the walls, which is why its design stands out so much among those of other cafes.

After winning the 12th edition of the Grands Prix du Design in the “Health Office and Clinic Award” category, the Clinique Vétérinaire du Parc stands out with its unique design and beauty.

Here, you will find a perfect atmosphere for a quiet reading session with the sun passing through the large window!

6. The eclectic and relaxing decor of Bar Darling

Located on the famous St-Laurent Boulevard, in an area with many bars and restaurants, the Darling stands out with its welcoming lounge atmosphere. Although its name includes the word "bar", the Darling is also a great place for a good coffee or a spot to check out during your dinner break.

8. Japanese traditions with a contemporary twist for Ryù and Livia

In an impressive 2 for 1, Livia is a matcha bar that shares the same premises as Ryù, a traditional Japanese restaurant with a design inspired by the traditions of the land of the rising sun.

9. An industrial garden design for the Jack Rose restaurant

Grunge meets tropical in this Saint-Laurent boulevard joint, set in a former auto body and repair shop. Exposed beams and repainted air ducts add an industrial touch to the decor, which is accentuated with darker colour and lighting choices.

The textures are a mix between an abundance of hanging plants and the original materials of the preserved walls, creating a warm design and a relaxed atmosphere, perfect for escaping from the outside world.

10. A stylish beauty experience at Salon Hideout

Pink structures serve as pillars and shelves in the main space of this beauty salon in Griffintown. Working with a design by the Ménard Dworkind studio, the team was able to create the perfect setting despite budget restrictions, especially by investing in strategic locations and solutions rather than aesthetics.

Modified living room chairs and IKEA sinks serve as a manicure station, along with the professional tools traditionally seen in beauty salons.
