This month’s EQ3 Blogger of the Month is Toronto-based blogger Tim Lam of Design Maze. In addition to authoring his popular design blog, Tim has a busy career in the finance industry and runs his own decorating business. His work has been featured in Canadian publications like Style at Home and The National Post. Tim is known for his love of colourful spaces and graphic patterns, so when asked to choose a favourite EQ3 accessory, it’s no surprise that he selected iconic bedding from the EQ3+ Marimekko line.
Earlier this month, Tim told EQ3 Facebook readers why he was drawn to Marimekko’s Unikko duvet cover. And today, he’s showing us how he styled it in his own bedroom. You can find the latest duvet colours and styles here.
“Living in a condo right at the heart of downtown Toronto means I have limited access to my very own outdoor oasis. So I am always looking for ways to bring the outdoors into my interiors to reflect the beauty of our changing seasons. For this summer, I am delighted to have met the bright and cheerful Unikko Duvet Cover and Shams by Marimekko at EQ3.
The bedroom always has a special place in my heart, and I think you will agree with me. After all, it is the first room our eyes see when we wake up and the last space we enter for a good night sleep.
Poppies are one of my favourite summer flowers, and I love the graphic, modern interpretation of this delicate, yet proud symbolic bloom. The fabric is luxuriously soft and has a subtle sheen thanks to the 300-thread-count and 100% cotton percale. The bright canary yellow and soft dove grey palette of the Unikko duvet cover and shams works seamlessly in my off-white bedroom and with my wallpapered feature wall.
With hits of ocean blues and a hint of pale pink through decorative accessories and pillows, I am ready to jump into bed!” - Tim Lam, Design Maze
