Mata Atlântica in Amsterdam

Inspired by the botanical book “Historia Naturalis Brasiliae” commissioned by Count Johan Maurits (Governor Dutch-Brazil 1637-1644), we created this wallpaper for this impressive house in the center of Amsterdam. The wallpaper depicts the Mata Atlântica around São Paulo, Brazil. With a flora and fauna setting of a typical landscape of São Paulo country side with the mountain Pico do Jaraguá, the purple Manaca da Serra, the yellow Guapuruvu and of course the little capibara’s under a Flamboyant tree. Both wallpapers are painted separated in our studio with the same light as the conservatory to create more depth and realisme. We used a grey-green color scheme to match the existing paneling and ceilings of the historical rooms. In total we have painted over 24 square meters over a period of approximately 4 months.
