Of all the trends this year, PlayMake is the most optimistic. Its the year after the recession and our world has been very serious. We feel no remorse for the economy since it was not from our doing and we are already working towards a more sustainable earth. In the meantime, however, we need to have fun! There is a desire to be free and spontaneous to release our creative spirit. We are now ready to be creative in designing our future in the form of colourful playscapes of our inner child, resulting in an explosion of good humour and bright colours.
People just cant get enough of our Wallpaper! This versatile medium allows for creative expression with your wall as the proverbial canvas. Whether you decide on an updated version of a traditional damask in bold new colours, or youd like Farmboy to create a custom pattern for you, our wallpaper is great way to reinvent your space.
At Farmboy we are lucky to be situated in downtown Vancouver, the host city of the recent 2010 Winter Olympic Games. The energy in the city has been amazing with locals and international visitors alike soaking in all that Vancouver has to offer. Wed like to extend a big Thank you! to all the volunteers and athletes from around the world that made the Games possible!
After retiring from a busy life as a professional forester in British Columbia, Mike Lane sailed with his wife to Alaska on a freight boat.

We took the same photos, but he was immediately able to look at his in the lounge on his laptop computer. He knew then that he had to go digital and as soon as he got home he went out and bought an early Olympus digital camera.
