People realized some time ago that you cannot be brilliant in all fields of activity , but you can be great in only one and average in the others. So it is better to do what you do best and leave the rest for the specialists. So they soon realized that if you wanted to have a beautifully arranged home, you’d better look for an interior designer because they will know exactly what to do to make your dreams come true. Here are ten of the world’s most famous interior designers who are now successful and their most important works:
10. Robert Bailey
Is the last one in our top but this does not mean that he is less important than the others. I like to say that they are different, but they are all great interior designers. Robert Bailey is a Canadian interior designer and he mixes functionality with design, comfort with class.
This is perfectly shown in his work, for example in the way he arranged this beautiful Silversea Residence in Vancouver, Canada. The best thing about designing this apartment was the fact that he had to take everything from the start since the residence was completely demolished and renovated, which is a lot easier than working with what you already have there. So the designer was asked to find a way to cover a toddler’s needs and the adults ‘ ones, too, without visible intrusions in each others’ life styles and areas.
So we can say it was a challenge from the very beginning. The apartment has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, but they are all located on the same floor, so there had to be a clear distinction made to differentiate them and to keep a common feature, too. And Bailey found the balance and did a great job. His first and main concern was to give the sensation of space so the transition between the rooms is fluid and natural without major disruptions. The rooms are beautifully designed, but kept simple, comfortable and nice.
The design is rather minimalist, with everything you need, but not too much, with modern furniture painted in white and having interesting shapes. Every now and then a colourful pillow or a picture arrangement on the wall brings a dissonant note which is only for the best. Everything looks so clean and modern, with all the necessary media and appliances, but still safe for the toddler to walk around. It gave me a sensation of peace and quiet, perfect for a family with a child.
