Nature inspired wallpaper - Rollout Biosphere

1 ART HISTORY
Artist David Palmer’s vinyl Biosphere covering layers painted and line-drawn cherry blossoms, charting how artworks evolve from sketch to canvas. The nature inspired wallpaper pattern’s base layer nods to earlier masterpieces by mimicking the peeled look of aging Italian frescoes. From $15/sq ft, online at rollout.ca

2 BACK TO THE FUTURE
Slanted rectangular blocks resemble flying cars on Osborne & Little’s Picasso-inspired Cubiste design by Kit Miles. Simultaneously retro and futuristic, the digitally printed covering is available in three colourways. $894/bolt, at Primetime Paints & Paper
