Paradiso has a strong sense of its Chinese inheritance, incorporating bamboo and a variety of oriental flora. It’s similar in density to our Nonsuch design layout but feels altogether softer and lighter, with a texture and rhythm all of its own.
The scheme has a real sense of depth, an almost three-dimensional quality, which we achieve by bringing key elements of the foliage into the foreground.
Paradiso works beautifully in all settings but is particularly well suited to bold colour schemes.

Each painted panel begins its life as a length of raw silk which we size with a natural adhesive so that it receives paint without bleeding. We often brush the silk with iridescent pearl washes to add further lustre before backing with traditional rice paper. This forms the extraordinary canvas on which our artists work their magic.
Our artists are masters of traditional Chinese painting and work in teams to meticulously plan out each room before slowly building up the many layers of detail and colour. To achieve intensity and shade, the artist will blend hues, often using two brushes simultaneously.
