In his new studio curated with the curious and the classic, the trendy and the traditional, Vancouver designer Peter Wilds proves that opposites, as they say, do attract.
Cool, classic, eclectic, cultured – there’s a cornucopia of words to describe designer Peter Wilds’s style. But what I love most is his ability to seamlessly combine them all, tempering the would-be creepy with the undeniably classy. Having found the key to pairing skulls and flowers, hearts and antlers – all in this street-level Vancouver studio for his design firm that launched last year – he has also found the key to my decor heart. Plus, between you and me, it doesn’t hurt that he’s handsome to boot. And those tough tattoos? They’re all of his favourite flowers: peonies, parrot tulips and roses. (Love!)Peter Wilds Design
