HGTV Urban Oasis: Hallway Pictures

A welcoming front entry pairs antiques and vintage finds with modern accents to reflect the city’s own juxtaposition of old and new.

About the Hallway

Subtlety had no place in the design of a luxury apartment with views as grand as the city itself. \"Right from the start I wanted you to have a visual impact,\" says interior designer Vern Yip. \"I wanted every room in the unit to celebrate the city.\" The front entry boasts rich wood flooring, dramatic artwork and furnishings sourced at locations throughout the city – from high-end boutiques to world-famous flea markets.

Wire-brushed walnut flooring provides a warm welcome in the hallway. Vern selected the traditional flooring to contrast with the building's modern exterior spaces. \"I specifically laid the floor length-wise so that when you enter, it immediately takes you in,\" he says.
