The Quiet Room is an important space on the Maternity Ward. Set aside for the use of parents who have lost their baby, it is somewhere they can go for quiet reflection or to discuss their loss with specialist nursing staff.
As part of the woodland theme we created for Queens Hospital, we were commissioned to re-design the Quiet Room on the Maternity Ward at to create a comforting and calming space. The illustration used a soft colour palette and natural forms applied to printed wallpaper that wrapped around the room, creating a special and soothing environment for thought and reflection.
Staff wanted to respond to parent's requests for some way to memorialise their loss. We developed a subtle memorial into the overall design - whereby parents could place a bronze vinyl leaf, featuring their baby's name, onto the large tree in the wallpaper design.
