Cibar in Blood Olive
A real showstopper of a colourway, Blood Olive contrasts a pale, olive green silk background with several tones of red to create a unique sense of drama.
Cibar is a pared-down, more contemporary version of our dramatic Paradiso bamboo design.
The shifts between fine, layered detail and open space give a unique rhythm to the scheme, leading the eye through the composition.
The emphasis on negative space makes for a very adaptable layout. We find it especially well suited to rooms with lots of furniture or framed artwork as we can tailor the bamboo and birds to work around these features, creating a wonderfully harmonious overall effect.

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.
