The Hotel Le Germain Montreal is undergoing major renovations. As the new décor is inspired by the 60’s and Expo 67, we had the pleasure of going back in time to rediscover those years where design was everything.
To be inspired, we visited many local boutiques selling vintage artefacts, retro home décor and some collectibles from the 60s and 70s.
Here are our best places in Montreal to find some pieces of the past to upgrade your home.
