12. Editor’s Pick: Brutalist Mix collection from AVDxRollout (from $16.50 per square foot) 

Brutalist Mix collection

Designer Alykhan Velji is known for spaces that celebrate colour, pattern and texture—and his new wallpaper collaboration with Rollout is a perfect extension of just that. Drawing both from Velji’s African heritage and an inspiring read through a vintage design magazine that turned him on to brutalist architecture, the  Brutalist Mix collection is just what your bedroom wall is waiting for. “Terra” draws cues from the red earth and lush greens of Tanzania, while “Elements” and “Dune”  celebrate the study in contrast that brutalism can showcase—soft forms overlie the sharp angles of brutalism in the former, while pinks, sand and ochre colours in the latter take their inspiration from the desert and architectural forms. rollout.ca
