With Fall upon us and nights starting to grow colder, it’s time to break out the comforters and the word COZY. Designer Ami McKay has partnered with Bed Bath and Beyond, Canada to create a sumptuous bedding line in mix and match shades of lavender, turquoise and gray with fun, modern patterns.

PURE is the product of Ami’s vision for a brighter future. In the course of her mission to make the world a better, more beautiful place, she is bringing healthy, sustainable design to homes across Canada. She marries clean lines, fresh design and a splash of fun into everything she touches and Canadians get to reap the benefit. With the unveiling of PURE, Ami introduced a delightful line of homewares and bedding designed to help you create your own sanctuary, turning your home into a place you love to inhabit.

Made predominantly of natural fiber cotton and bamboo, PURE bedding is Oeko-Tex Certified, meaning it is produced with eco-friendly materials and practices in mind. The dyes and manufacturing process are non-toxic, with no heavy metals which insures that the water coming out of the factories is as clean at it was going in. 

Ami explains the vision behind her bedding, “The PURE bedding line is inspired by the beautifully pristine environment that surrounds my home on the ocean in Vancouver, BC. The designs are full of natural organic shapes and soothing tones that you can mix and match with other pieces. It was important for me to create something not only beautiful and comfortable but also a product that isn’t harmful to the environment.

Pure Bedding is available exclusively for Canadian readers at stores across Canada and online at Bed Bath and Beyond.

What are some tips to help our readers create their own Modern Sanctuary?
1) Buy pieces you love and that excite you.
2) I call it, "Spreading the love". Which means we mix high end pieces with existing, reinvented and sourced vintage pieces to achieve the look of quality while remaining budget conscious.
3) Make sure it is comfortable by adding layers of textiles, books and plants. It is all about creating memories and a home that people gather in. I do this by having several enticing areas throughout our home to nestle into with a friend, a book, or a cup of tea.
Who are some of your favorite Craftsmen whose work you incorporate when designing a home?
Hinterland: This is a newer company in Vancouver making their own furniture. Their pieces are so distinctive! They use old trees from the Sunshine Coast and create contemporary, rustic pieces for your home.

Miriam Aroeste: Local Vancouver artist who makes bold hued contemporary art pieces that make a passionate statement in every space.

Janis Nicolay: Local Vancouver photographer, a visual storyteller who’s images are captivating and beguiling. Once you see her work, it is hard to forget.

Once A Tree Furniture: Family owned company we have worked with for years. Their team are warmhearted and caring while consistently producing and delivering beautifully well crafted pieces.
What is one small design change that makes a big difference?
Paint makes a huge difference in a space. Having the right colour sets the tone and feel for the whole house. It is a great solution for changing the look of your kitchen instead of replacing your cabinets. Paint the cabinets lighter for a fresh look, and add a bold patterned Moroccan floor tile to add individuality.
What is your Modern Sanctuary?
My home is my Sanctuary. We live in Lion’s Bay which is a town in the mountains, outside of the city. We live right beside the ocean in a contemporary, rustic style cabin home. It is fresh, bright, and away from the chaos of the busy city. It’s wonderful!
