An expert use of color

Sometimes a pop of color really is all you need—especially if
it’s a
trending hue
that’s also naturally soothing and refreshing.
Case in point: This renovated Montreal home designed by Naturehumaine Architects, who’ve
added a sage green staircase that’s now the indisputable center
of attention in the residence.

The architects added three main elements to the house during the
renovation: a stairway, front balcony, and cantilevered rear volume
to hold an additional bedroom. All three are painted the same shade
of pale green to pull things together.

The sleek staircase is, by far, the most striking addition. The
steel structure cuts through the center of the house, stretching
all the way up to a skylight. The airy interior is otherwise
calm—a monochromatic white scheme with glossy surfaces and
painted wood beams—save for one more choice moment of color: a
kids bathroom tub tiled in a cheery sunshine yellow.
