While visiting Italy, we took a stop at the iconic city of Florence. This Italian gem is best known for its rich culture and Renaissance art scene. As such, we spent much of our time wandering through the city’s streets and admiring the incredible architecture. We didn’t expect to come across several vintage photo booths, many of which are still in working order. Some are freestanding, whereas others are worked into the buildings and have become integral with the city walls. These photo booths ooze nostalgia while acting as an exciting memory-maker, freezing the present day in a second-long time capsule.

It is these vintage photo booths that acted as inspiration for our latest mood board. In particular, this red photo booth set into the yellowed walls of a building caught our eye. We love the high contrast of the red and yellow and the simplicity of using a primary color palette. To mimic the walls, we started with our patina carpet as the backdrop. Our team recolored the pattern, using shades of light beige reminiscent of the Florentine buildings. On top of this, we layered several other products in similar beige, grey, and yellow tones. Examples include Hancock Gray and Wasabi by Benjamin Moore and Lemon Verbena by Sherwin-Williams.

We added Parian by Brentano and Mediterraneo Embossed U by Foglizzo Leather, reminiscent of the red vintage photo booth itself. Both of these are in the same deep, classic red. Just as with the real-life streets of Florence, these simple colors pair great if after high contrast. Weave by Sabine Hill is another product included in the mood board. The square print mirrors the strips of photos produced by the booth. It also provides a grid-like effect against the patina carpet backdrop. This is comparable to the photo booth, street signs, and posters acting as partitions in the wall. Finally, we completed the look with Epoca Pro by Ege Carpets, Coffee Bean by Laminart, and Canadian Maple by Laminart.
