For designer Robert Bailey, an entryway isn€™t just a place to drop your bag: It's an opportunity for an introduction. €œIt 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. €œWe 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. €œCurate, don't decorate.€
