Photos of Montreal Homes: Steps, Bicycles and Leafy Loveliness

I couldn’t help but stare up at a French voile curtain that was beautifully draped behind a baroque-style balcony of a second floor flat in Montreal. A trio of neatly placed plant pots were lined up in front of a heavenly-looking hammock. Despite having only been in this French Canadian city for a short time, I was already accustomed to the sheer amount of pride Montrealites appeared to take in the facades of their homes.

Stairwells were charmingly carpeted, immaculate plant pots and floral decorations brightened up entrances, and retro front doors and wind chime displays brought a quirky edge to home fronts. Another hard-to-miss aspect was the abundance of bicycles that really added to the aesthetic appeal, as did the tree-lined streets. Have a look at these Montreal photographs and let me know what you think!
