“Today’s designs for senior living reflect the unique needs of modern aging in place for those who want to maintain both prolonged independence and high quality of life,” says Silvana Levey, CEO of LEVEY.  “Revera and the production team considered many factors when choosing a design for the walls of Westney Gardens.  These included refinement of specific colours for optimum vision, texture for glare reduction and the full purpose of creating a sense of familiarity.” The high contrast print of black graphics atop the pale beige background provides optimum visibility without sacrificing colour harmony. The result ensures familiarity and comfort while elegantly providing a way for the residents of Westney Gardens to enjoy personally supported methods of identifying their space.

LEVEY Red Wallcovering Takes Centre Stage in Canadian Actor’s Toronto Home

Red Wallcovering

LEVEY Red Takes Centre Stage in Canadian Actor Canadian actor Yannick Bisson’s Toronto Home

Canadian actor Yannick Bisson commissioned Eric McClelland of Fleur-de-lis Interior Design Inc to bring the vision he had for his Toronto family home to life.

LEVEY Red Wallcovering in Canadian Actor Canadian actor Yannick Bisson’s Toronto HomeIn a design space that is full of modern elements and clean lines, it’s easy to unintentionally create an environment that comes across as cold, unwelcoming, and even intimidating. To combat this, natural elements were incorporated into the design of the Murdoch Mystery star’s residence such as the use of walnut baseboards and warm, wood, wall panels – these wood tones succeeded in bringing aspects of outdoor nature to the interior design space, achieving a sense of comfort. Furthermore, a bright red wallcovering supplied by Levey featuring a diminutive organic texture warms up the overall atmosphere while simultaneously delivering a lively punch of colour to an otherwise neutral colour scheme.

Achieve this look on your next design project with the choices below:

SanFoot Walnut Wood Veneer Wallcovering from LEVEY

Bring the outdoors in, by way of our SanFoot Natural Wood Veneers – a collection of natural wood veneers prefinished with two coats of polyurethane that install just like any other commercial wallcovering without the need of specialized tools or procedures. This sustainably produced collection of domestic and exotic wood species is carefully sourced from responsibly managed forests and manufactured using a patented log slicing process – which slices the veneer to a very thin state so as to increase log yield up to 300% in comparison to traditional wood veneer production methods. Choose from a wide variety of real wood species, “AA” architectural-grade veneers, cuts and colours allowing for the versatile integration of wood tones for use in residential and commercial applications including corporate, hospitality, retail, healthcare and entertainment venues.

Red Wallcoverings from LEVEY

Richly textured, Anassa from our Denovo Wall collection in Well Red is a tactile way to incorporate a warm, punchy red that is sure to be the star of the show. For a more subdued red, one might opt for Via in Barn Red from our collection of Command Wallcoverings – this rich red is comprised of varying red tones in organic vertical striations.

Located just west of the King and John intersection, in front of the TIFF Bell Lightbox you’ll find the King Street Causeway – a destination parklet designed by a team of architects and designers at IBI Group. This unique parklet is the result of the King Street Pilot Project, launched by the City of Toronto with the intent of creating a series of visually appealing curb lane public spaces for the public’s recreation.

IBI Group worked with LEVEY as authorized national distributor of 3M Architectural products to contribute the specific architectural film needed for the creation of an important visual element in the parklet design. 3M DiChroic Architectural Film in the shades Chill and Blaze supplied by LEVEY were laminated and then sandwiched between layers of acrylic provided for added outdoor durability. This was ultimately fashioned into hexagonal beacons with dichroic and lifelike movement qualities during the day as well as at night when illuminated by a network of hidden LED light sources.

Drawing inspiration from the interlocking hexagonal basalt columns on the coast of Northern Ireland caused by ancient volcanic fissure eruptions, the King Street Causeway is comprised of a multitude of hexagonal components at varying heights. These carefully thought out hexagonal elements serve as multifunctional vessels to be used as footrests, seats, and tables with the intention of becoming a gathering point in the city’s entertainment district for locals and visitor’s alike. Accented by hexagonal beacons that illuminate in the evening and feature dichroic qualities that portray the colours of a sunset by way of architectural film provided by LEVEY, the King Street Causeway becomes an ambient gathering point that appeals to Toronto’s vibrant nightlife.

Be sure to visit the King Street Causeway to see the dynamic colour shifting capabilities of 3M Architectural Film for yourself at 315 King St W, Toronto
