Twisting, turning branches and birds in flight work in harmony to form an elegant, understated composition. The delicate brushwork and detail perfectly balance the lustre of the silk ground in the backdrop. The overall effect manages to be both modern and romantic.
Sylvaner is a very open design layout and features lots of space, making it extremely flexible. It can feel calm and serene in an uncluttered setting, but it’s also a wonderful choice for rooms with lots of breaks for architectural features or furniture as we can tailor the branches to climb around windows, picture frames and so on.

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.
