Illustrated Wallpaper for Adelaide Hospital

September 12, 2012 Children enjoy the seaside much more than hospitals. That’s why Hellen from Prana Studios in Adelaide created a textured wallpaper decorated with a vivid, playful underwater garden.  Now adorning the walls of the Adelaide Women’s and Children’s Gamma Suite, the bright wallpaper was illustrated by Marta Antelo and features a friendly mermaid with long tresses, a smiling whale and many happy fish including Nemo’s family. The underwater scene creates a  welcoming and lively atmosphere for sick children undergoing tests. The kids love it.
