Mental Health Counselling Room

I worked alongside Juliette Hughes, the Clinical Manager of the Emergency Department at Southmead and Matt Crabtree, the Department Manager, to come up with some artwork for the Mental Health Counselling Room in the ED. It was a tricky brief as the aim was soften the room and make it more of a relaxing place for patients and staff. We settled on a garden/botanical theme and as there was already some furniture in the room, I tied in the wall vinyls with the dark blue and turquoise already in place. The back wall features two shelves containing botanical prints and plants which I hope help distract and calm whoever finds themselves in the room. The rest of the room depicts a greenhouse and landscape alongside hanging succulents and birds, bringing a little of the outside inside.
