Designer: Angela Robinson
Home: Vancouver, B.C.
Specialty: Collage Cool
All it takes to produce a one-of-a-kind artwork is a little cutting and pasting. In this bedroom (occupied by a young girl), designer Angela Robinson used a utility knife to cut triangles from wallpaper roll ends and pages from a book of Christian Chaize beach photographs, then had a wallpaper installer come and hang the pieces into a geometric collage. Though the images all come from different sources, there is a unifying theme. “We came up with our colour story—pink, white, teal, beachy tones—and chose a maximum of seven textures and images that fit within that. It’s eclectic without looking too busy,” says Robinson. “We wanted to create a room that was fun and youthful, but sophisticated—something to grow into.”
