NATIVE TRAILS - Designers WE LOVE
"I love layering different textures and colours in a space. The texture is an amazing way to stimulate touch—from a plush towel to pebble-stoned flooring; each medium has a unique effect on your senses and comes in all shapes and forms. Incorporating natural materials in a space is another way to delight the senses—whether in the form of a wood backsplash in a herringbone pattern in a kitchen, a textured copper sink, or a live edge counter top, I want each room to have a showpiece that is also classic so that it can be appreciated and enjoyed for years to come. One of my favourite projects is a condo renovation we recently completed. We were able to create a cohesive design throughout but also give each room a different feel by incorporating a mix of textures and colours.
