For our latest antique carpet mood board, we took inspiration from the Palazzo Albricci Peregrini Hotel in Como, Italy. The architecture and interior design of the space are unique and captivating. Set inside medieval walls, the hotel exudes character, history, and authenticity. The interior has a similarly raw yet elegant charm, making guests feel welcome and cozy. All of the pieces that make up the décor have been carefully chosen by the designers. They focused on objects made locally or from precious materials and collected through years of travel. This makes the place feel alive and colorful, with the imperfections in the handcrafted furniture only adding to the charm.
Within the hotel, we came across a room that kept many of its original decaying features as part of the intelligent design work. Many of the walls are peeling with different layers of paint and wallpaper showing stories of the past. Within these layers, you can see patterns emerge when you let your imagination run wild. This is where we took inspiration from when designing our antique carpet. We recolored the design to match Palazzo Albricci Peregrini’s walls, opting for muted blues, corals, and beige. The recolored carpet by ege is the backdrop for our latest mood board.
On top of this, we layered several different materials. Two – Embossed Raffia Diamond by Barbarossa Leather and Nouveau by Wolf-Gordon – have distinct geometric patterning. We love the contrast of these rigid, repetitive patterns against the more fluid, unpredictable patterns of our antique carpet. Conversely, Calacatta Oro Marble Tile by TileBar has a stunning natural marbled finish. This product’s flowing pattern complements the carpet without stealing attention thanks to its white and grey tones.
Inspired by the hotel owner’s travel experience and its link to the venue’s design, we next added materials reminiscent of foreign shores. Oak Reiter by Kahrs Group and Grande by Koroseal Interior Products are both beige, reminding us of the stone-colored walls. These two products, along with Walnut, American Burl by Koroseal Interior Products, have natural raw textures. This pairs brilliantly with the decaying walls and antique carpet, while further channel feelings of nature. The aqua tones of Metal Matrix Wall Tile by Architessa and blue of Transparent by CARVART are reminiscent of the ocean. Similarly, the deep yellow of Avion by Garrett Leather is like a beaming sun. Together, these products force you to imagine setting sail to foreign shores off on an adventure.
