Victoria-based Bidgood crafts a playful modern entryway.
An entryway can be simply a transitional space—or it can be an opportunity. For Victoria-based designer Kyla Bidgood, the entry in this home with “incredible bones” was the latter, outfitted with gorgeous mirroring archways that Bidgood describes as “begging to be enhanced.”
Working with Strong Built, her team painted the doorways in high-contrast black to emphasize the shape against the pristine white walls and to complement the character of the home. Lightweight Non-Random lights from Moooi illuminate the length of the Bouquet 1 tiles to create a true design moment that doesn’t just move you through the home: it’s a space that says, “You’ve arrived.”
