Christophe is one of our founders and creative director. His passions are interiors, cooking, and traveling the globe for new inspiration.

When craving inspiration for designing a multi-colored carpet, we knew where to look for it. Our recent visit to Peru was enough to get our concept drawn out instantly. Accordingly, we created a complimentary mood board that will enchant you with the colors.  The indigenous women in the Andes wear traditional clothes with vibrant colors and geometric patterns. The traditional outfit consists of a wide skirt, short jacket, small hat, and a cape.

Our carefully curated mood board reflects all aspects of Andean clothing. The lively colors, striking patterns, and textured fabrics create a bold combination and complement our multi-colored carpet. Bright Stripe by ege carpets provides an excellent foundation for this mood board, borrowing the muted pink tone from the traditional patterns. 

Epoca Moss by ege carpets complements the textile choice with a stunning shag carpet texture. The traditional Andean clothing implements a variety of textures, providing enough inspiration for us to curate this mood board. We feel like the palette needs a natural element for a dose of visual touch. Wedge – Ash Split Block by Jamie Beckwith Collection is the right fit, adding an organic feel with the unfinished look. The wood texture would become a stunning focal point in the space, complementing the other elements. 

The remarkable geometric shapes seen on the Andean clothing inspired us to introduce a similar pattern. Vivace Roads by Bedrosians Tile and Stone bring visual interest with the eye-catchy design while fitting in the initial concept. 

Lamu by Vescom is a cream upholstery fabric crafted from fine wool. Andean people wear alpaca wool, so the organic feel and natural texture complement the mood board. Claridge NP³ Chalkboard by Claridge ties the elements together, achieving the perfect balance between them. When observing the Andean clothing, we noticed a lively mix of patterns. Exeter by Posh Textiles is an upholstery fabric with a dazzling print, unhesitant to connect the other elements. 

Hill And Dale by Brentano feature a stunning version of the famous chevron pattern. It reminds us of the pollera, a wide skirt that women wear. It comes with a colorful band called puyto, which often features a zig-zag print. The playfulness fits the overall mood while being easy to mix and match. To complete the carefully picked pattern combination, we finished with Tilt by Burch. We feel like the threading and pattern are strongly reminiscent of Lliclla, a traditional cape with a colorful design.
