Robert Bailey Interiors completed a two-storey vacation home located on the shores of the beautiful Lake Okanagan, British Columbia, Canada. The residence was inspired by client sketches and the surrounding geography and was designed from the ground up. According to the architects, “the result is a modern home that remains true to the idea of a cabin. Blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor living, the home is relaxing, durable, and rugged, with a defined purpose of summertime pleasure”.
Despite its cabin-like inspiration, this particular retreat showcases a highly modern design: “We used French oak on the ceiling and floors, the pre-distressed, fumed planking provided relaxed yet durable surfaces. Forgiving, not precious, it is the strongest design material in the home. Our goal for the furnishings was to achieve a sense of simple luxurious comfort, that feels curated rather and designed”. All interiors open up towards the rich landscape and an outdoor waterfront leisure space meets the owners’ expectations of their dream home.
