Antoine, a Montréal local - based in the Villeray neighbourhood - knows all the best spots for food, flowers and wine in the city. With a passion for style and red wine; when needing to plan a special occasion, Antoine is your go-to guy. Hilarious in both French and English, he’s always making jokes. When he’s not making us laugh, he’s singing whatever random song is stuck in his head or sharing his best recipes. Curious, energetic, enthusiastic, and a true go-getter, Antoine always hits the ground running when an idea pops in his mind. With over 15 years of experience in retail, he adds magic to Palmo in every aspect - merchandising, operations, styling, buying and good vibes.

If loving this is wrong then I don’t want to be right: Having a little organization/cleaning OCD (each object has his place). Isn’t it best to live clutter free?

My most irrational fear: Taking an appointment for myself.
My simple pleasures: My pug, a bottle of natural wine and my closest relationship's.
One thing i will never do again: Buy a light beige (v expensive) sofa a month before having a puppy… also, horseback riding.
The one thing you should know about me is: I love having people over for dinner.
