Sometimes the right space can inspire relocation, as this client discovered.

This 2,200 square foot (205 square metre) residence was originally planned as a pied-a-terre in Vancouver for a couple from Calgary. We began by taking the 2-bedroom and 2-bath apartment back to the studs and rebuilt it from its concrete shell. Our goal was to create a unified suite, with a consistent flow from one room to the other, the elements of one space relating to the next. Because it was a pied-a-terre, we wanted it to feel instantly accessible and welcoming. The co-ordinated design was created with custom furniture and rugs. Local art, including work by Jack Shadbolt, anchored the home in its location.

The home felt so welcoming and reflective of the client that they decided to relocate to Vancouver from Calgary, so now their pied-a-terre is their principal residence.

“We never thought that a design could inspire our relocation. But it did. Robert Bailey Interiors captured such a great feel and warmth in our home in Vancouver, that we decided to move here.”
