The walls in Maria Raco’s downtown Toronto apartment do not disappoint. As the founder and director of NewWall, a wallpaper distributor of collections from Marimekko, Timorous Beasties and more, plenty of rooms in her home feature vibrant patterns. Rustic wood beams and tall ceilings contrast nicely with the kitchen she designed two years ago, which has sleek cabinets and a contrasting black and white materials palette. She shares her dramatic and comfortable home with her husband and new baby son.
