In the work of The Peach Colony of Tao Yuanming,
a great poet of Eastern Jin Dynasty, he says,
“… there was a fisherman of Wuling.
One day he was walking along a bank.
After having gone a certain distance,
he suddenly came upon a peach grove
which extended along the bank for about a hundred yards.
He noticed with surprise that the grove had a magic effect,
so singularly free from the usual mingling of brushwood,
while the beautifully grassy ground was covered with its rose petals.
He went further to explore, and when he came to the end of the grove,
he saw a spring which came from a cave in the hill.
Having noticed that there seemed to be a weak light in the cave,
he tied up his boat and decided to go in and explore.
At first the opening was very narrow,
barely wide enough for one person to go in.
After a dozen steps, it opened into a flood of light.”
It is in Wuling described in The Peach Colony
that the project is located in.
Wulingyuan, Zhangjiajie is a World Natural Heritage
and the national 5A-class tourist scenic spot.
In addition to crags and stones formed more than hundreds of millions of years ago,
there are also pristine minorities, mysterious religions,
rough and bold music, and very spicy food.
We abstract these beautiful elements in our design,
in order to create a cozy and natural atmosphere
as that of The Peach Colony.
Walnut is used in all rooms because of its unadornment and simplicity.
The furniture and decoration that reflect the distinctive minority style
can show customers the local culture and customs.
Being different from the general resorts,
a piece of granite with natural cleft is unprecedentedly adopted in the room,
which leaves profound impression on customers.
Besides, natural stones and wood decorations,
pillows and furniture with silk floss are also used in the design.
Xilan Ka-pu (a fabric peculiar to Tujia Minority)
hung on the wall of headboard enables customers fall asleep
with the handmade works of folk artists
in such an area with minority characteristics.
Besides the visual enjoyment,
the furniture design and tea set that heal the breaking heart
can also awake the happy memory and thoughts deep in your mind.
With a leave falling on the bed,
you turn around and see the abstract mountains.
Being surrounded by the nature,
we seem to be in the Peach Colony,
hoping that the dream would never end.
