Design & Stories on the Wall
Take in Salinda Resorts incredible artwork and design, which celebrates the harmony between human and nature. Artwork from the Art House Gallery established in 2014 and featuring both emerging and well-respected Vietnamese artists can be found displayed on the walls, depicting the most breath-taking sceneries of Vietnam and daily life. This collaboration with Madam Huyen is part of the ‘purple by Salinda’ Sustainability programme which looks to support local artists by giving their beautiful paintings a home.
Take note of the stunning wallpaper which each portray individual stories on the wall, designed by de Gournay, the most luxurious wallpaper in the World. Schools of fish have been delicately painted on Silk and Sterling Silver paper, reflecting local marine life on marble tiles with mirror mosaics. While liquid movement of fishes complements sleek monochromatic lines of furnishings, it simultaneously softens the hits of peacock blue splashes within the contemporary Indian restaurant.
