Orchard View Care Home, Leicester - Complete Care home Mural Scheme

I have spent the last few weeks working in a care home that is being completely refurbished by the current owners.  The owners aim is to create a calming, welcoming, warm feel to the care home. The residents will be aged between 18 and 65 and will mainly have learning and physical difficulties - and the care home is being design with this in mind. The owners came to me firstly with the intention of just having a mural for there entrance - then once we got talking and I began to give them ideas on what they could have along there very long boring corridors and also suggested designs for there lounge areas - they then asked me to draw up a full scheme, which I did - and because my designs fitted their brief and budget set - they ordered the project.

So I will be posting the photos of the work I have done as I go along.  Below is the entrance palm and bamboo mural, and also below is a very tranquil blossom tree I did for one of their residents lounges. More images will follow soon.
