Walking into Garrow Kedigian's Montreal townhouse feels like entering an entirely different era. The structure is decidedly Georgian — an architectural style popularized by British monarchs of the 18th and 19th centuries — and almost every room is filled with Grecian-inspired fabrics, Roman busts and historical artwork.

For Kedigian, an architect and interior designer in his own right, it was essential that the space reflect his personality — which meant escueing the all-white interiors typically seen in Georgian homes for bold colours and one-of-a-kind antiques that give each room a bespoke feel. "More is more," he told us, and in this house that means secret rooms, eccentric wall paneling and lush textiles.

Check out the video below and tour this timeless, elegant space and get the scoop on the design techniques Kedigian used to pull it all together.
