The writing's on the walland we can't get enough of it.
Walls get poetic with whisper-soft shades and flights of fancy that are both serene and enchanting.
Taken from silk fabric found in Josephine Bonaparte’s bedchamber, the pattern of Farrow and Ball’s Bumble Bee wallpaper ($230 per roll) is especially playful in new colour combos of Peignoir and Shadow White or Cromarty and Yeabridge Green. farrow-ball.com
Double Fantasy (starts at $15 per square foot) is statement wallpaper inspired by Yoko Ono and the iconic black-and-white photograph of her and John Lennon kissing. Dreamy indeed. rollout.ca
Graphic yet luminous, this mega-scaled moon-motif mural (self-adhesive vinyl or wallpaper) by Vancouver-based Anewall ($269) sets any interior aglow. anewall.com
Sico’s spring and summer lineup of paints is all about buttercup-tinged whites and this dusty rose called Venice Skyline (from $45 a gallon), a powdery pastel that’s oh-so-soft and soothing. sico.ca
Benjamin Moore’s 2016 Colour of the Year is Simply White—a nuanced base on which to build a layer of light. benjaminmoore.com “For me, wall colour or material will first be about how it accentuates a geometry or can highlight a particular space. Once that architectural move has been established, my first instinct is always to add tile. This adds colour, texture, artistry and depth to a space. By far, my favourite tile at the moment is Heath tile. I’m enamoured of the new specked texture!”Heath Ceramics, Layered Glaze tile ($51 per square foot). heathceramics.comMarianne Amodio is Principal of Vancouver’s MAA Studio and winner of Western Living’s 2015 Designers of the Year Arthur Erickson Memorial Award for an emerging architect.
