Murals bring Lincoln care home to life

Exit the lift on the second floor at Tanglewood Care Homes’ flagship Cloverleaf Care Home in Lincoln and you will be greeted by the historic city-centre of Lincoln – all made possible with wallpaper murals.

Care Home Murals designs wallpaper murals for care homes and was commissioned to provide the wallpapers for this lobby area. The company has recreated the iconic Bailgate shopping street in a clever way that is instantly recognisable to residents and visitors.

“We have six care homes in Lincolnshire, and each one has its own identity and personality,” says Tracy Ann Shelbourn, Tanglewood Care Homes Founder and CEO. “We have worked with Care Home Murals before and Cloverleaf’s Bailgate-themed area is our tribute to a forward-thinking city steeped in history.”

The murals are carefully designed down to the smallest detail, providing just the right amount of visual impact in a balanced and meaningful way for the residents.

With the complementary furnishings, the lobby is a familiar, welcoming, peaceful yet fascinating environment in which to sit quietly or chat with friends outside the Café with a cup of tea.

Michael Potter, Care Home Murals design director, says he loves creating wall imagery that ‘works’ for the intended space and purpose.

“Every job is different and we relish opportunities, such as at Cloverleaf, to work with clients and realise their vision,” he says.
