It's time to embrace dark (warm!) wood tones and retro terrazzo tile.
The 1970s still hail as a major design influence, and with them, comes terrazzo. “People may recall seeing it in more commercial applications like schools and malls,” says Calgary designer Elena Del Bucchia. “With new technology there are so many fun colour variations and applications—it’s definitely worth exploring if you are after a more whimsical ’70s look, and you can apply it to walls, countertops or floors.”
In this 1920s church-turned-modern-day artist’s studio designed by Vancouver’s Hodgson Design Associates, terrazzo floors tie all time periods together.
The future of woods is matte, oiled, warm and decidedly darker, as seen in this Ladner home from architect Jennifer Heath and interior designer Jane Dabrowski.
Geometric tiles will continue to floor us in 2018, but regal gold and brushed-brass inlays are kicking high-end roomscapes into next-level. To get the look, check out the Odyssée collection (from $190 per square foot) from Montreal-based Mosaic Surface—there’s a glam tile motif for every style and space. mosaiquesurface.com
