Imagine a beautiful and glistening ocean adorned by bright-colored fishing boats. The Muizenberg fishing port in Cape Town is a historical part of the city. It features a view that captures many tourists’ hearts. The original fisherman port was built in 1652. Not to be mistaken with the freight port which is one of the busiest in the country. The port handles some of the largest shipments of fresh fruit that come to South Africa.

The beautiful blues of the glistening ocean inspires us to recolor our Nuages carpet to look just like the marine waters that surround the fisherman’s port in Cape Town. The blue marine carpet will make your interior feel like you are walking by the shore.

With the fishing port as our inspiration for this mood board, we decided to pair the Nuages with bright oranges and greens and peaceful blues. When choosing the bright colors, we went with 14 Carrots and Leprechaun by Benjamin Moore. The lighter blue of Lake Victoria by Benjamin Moore paired with textiles like Cleo and Nile by Silver State Inc. maintain the peace of the clear blue skies of the port. We also selected strong textiles that speak to African culture, like the Epoca Ribs by Ege Carpets and Scirocco H10F by Arto. Classic and simple materials like Jacaranda Inc.’s Teak and the chevron panel by Acoufelt tie everything together to make you truly feel like you are at the port in Cape Town.

Our Easy Recolor program allows you to take a carpet like the Nuages from the Christian Lacroix collection and create something unique. Our program allows you to personalize any of Easy Recolor carpets and get them delivered in 6-8 weeks. Not only can you customize the color of the carpet, but you can also personalize the construction of it. We have a wide variety of carpet substrates so that we can cater to lower and higher budgets. So feel free to contact us to find the perfect carpet for you.
