Infuse the entryway with thoughtful textures and balanced colours.
For designer Robert Bailey, an entryway isnt just a place to drop your bag: It's an opportunity for an introduction. It should start to tell the story of the home and who lives there, says the designer of this light and airy Vancouver condo. And here, the story is clear: one of elegance, warmth and welcome, thanks to Bailey's knack for pairing pieces that balance each other in a way that carries a sense of intention yet somehow feels natural. We want elements that speak or relate to each other but are not matched. We want to layer composition, periods and textures without it feeling too clever or overdesigned, says Bailey. Curate, don't decorate.
