These Western Canadian homes make a lasting first impression thanks to expertly designed entryways.
The hallway in this Calgary home, designed by McIntrye Bills, has symmetry thanks to the custom gold-framed mirrors and white benches—but the addition of the gold-legged round table adds a unique, dynamic element. See more of this modern rebuild.
The scale of this West Coast contemporary home gave designer Ami McKay room to play in the entryway: she installed a sculptural, curving staircase and pivoting door, then layered in a mix of natural materials (travertine, warm woods) to give it a laid-back vibe.
Sometimes, all an entryway really needs is, well…an entrance. The Accoya natural wood cladding on the outside of this McLeod Bovell-designed home is inviting; the inside is more quietly finished, letting the modern architecture shine. See more of this jaw-dropping split level.
In designer Denise Ashmore’s home, guests entering through the backyard are welcomed by a mini-mudroom—a perfect place for storing coats, shoes and bags. See more of this innovative Vancouver home.
This Calgary home has a stunning Napa Valley-inspired entryway. Wooden columns and steel I-beams dominate the ceiling while a zebra rug, console and ottoman provide an elegant spot to slip on shoes. See more of this Nam Dang-Mitchell designed home.
