While “fresh” and “crisp” are the typical go-to themes for spring, Vancouver designer Stephanie Brown is leaning the other way this year, embracing warm, organic textures and accents. “I’m usually an advocate for clean and contemporary design, but I love how this wabi-sabi inspired vibe brings softness, warmth and texture to otherwise sleek spaces,” she says. “This look embraces imperfections and natural materials—and, whether used broadly or sparingly, it perfectly complements a West Coast Modern aesthetic.”
