This two-storey vacation home on the shores of the beautiful Lake Okanagan, Naramata, British Columbia, Canada was designed by the Canadian interior designer Robert Bailey Interiors. Called Naramata Cabin, this impressive residence was inspired by client sketches and the surrounding geography and was designed from the ground up. The result is a modern home that remains true to the idea of “cabin”, being humble and unpretentious.

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.
Blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor living, the home is relaxing, durable, and rugged, with a defined purpose of summertime pleasure.
