Humboldt

I took part in the Dawanda Design competition and my wallpaper was among those to be picked and soon to be put up on the wall in one of the rooms at the Meininger Hotel on Berlin!

The place of the hotel is the location of the former house of Alexander von Humboldt, a German naturalist and explorer. The Meininger Hotel is inspired by Humboldt with each of the rooms and wallpapers relating to a quotation by him. The one I picked was:
__________
Ich glaube meinerseits, dass man noch größeren Entdeckungen dann immer sehr nahe ist, wenn die Tatsachen in einen scheinbaren Widerstreit treten. 
An Julius Schmidt, Berlin, 30. März 1850
