Big Picture

Anyone who’s visited Washington, D.C., in the spring can tell you the cherry blossoms blooming around town are both breathtaking and iconic – a trademark symbol of the city, originally planted to symbolize a friendship between the US and Japan. So, to incorporate a taste of the local culture, the designers of the new Embassy Row Hotel teamed with Astek Wallcovering to create a striking wall mural featuring an artistic display of cherry blossoms. The design, which was hand-painted in watercolor and then scanned and digitally adapted, stretches across 3000 square feet; there are no repeats to be found. The mural was printed on Astek’s Durst Rho 312R onto their proprietary Silver Mylar Type II wallcovering material.
