Continuing with our Color Trends 2019, we are focusing on designs that explore the color and design of the "Country Caper" trend. Classic country characteristics work beautifully in contemporary settings and are used by some of the finest interior designers to create eclectic spaces. Timeless with a contemporary twist, this look draws on elements such as stressed timbers, green and pastel hues, floral patterns and themes, all offset against a modern backdrop.
Interior of VIP lounge
For the Hyatt Regency Hotel, in the heart of Amsterdam’s lush Plantage neighborhood, Rive Roshan envisioned a fantastical future for botanicals. Through their work, visitors to the hotel are whisked away to a dreamy and dynamic botanical world.
Drawing from history and the hotel’s location just steps from the Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world, which possesses plant species from around the world — and projecting that revered, exotic experience of plant life into the future — the studio conceptualized dramatic, theatrical artwork for the hotel.
The holistic project allowed the designers to create many graphic and textural elements within the space, with the horticultural graphics being seen on wall panels, headboards, public space mirrors and the VIP lounge.

With the underlayment of botanical drawings from the Amsterdam University archives, and an eye to an exotic, imagined future, the studio experimented with a variety of physical and digital techniques, materials and hues. The result was a series of larger-than-life, dramatic visuals of plants in full bloom, bringing the spirit of both a historic botanical garden and a new, fantastical experience of flora deep into the hotel.
