In Bogota, Colombia, we visited the oldest part of the city. La Candelaria is full of narrow cobblestone streets, pastel-colored houses, churches, and graffiti walls. Additionally, the area features some beautifully restored houses, while others have dilapidated as time went on. At the heart of this part of the city lies the Plaza de Bolivar. It features a statue of Simon Bolivar, sculpted back in 1846. Additionally, in La Candelaria, you can find the Botero Museum, the opera house, government buildings, and hotels in a beautiful and unique mix of neo-classical and modern architecture.

Inspired by the colors of a row of two-story buildings in La Candelaria, we recolor the Colour Cubes carpet. This geometric rug features orange, yellow, and blue colors, much like the colors of the buildings in the Colombian barrio. Additionally, this geometric carpet is a great option that ties in both cold and warm tones for any interior design project.

With the recolored geometric rug in mind, we created a material board in a similar color combination. We included beige tones like Cote d’Or by Haussmann Natural Stone, Reclaimed Grandstand Pine by Anthology Woods, and Corfu by 4Spaces. To add some unique texture to the material board, we included Signal by KnollTextiles, which is a beautiful sandy ombre textile. Additionally, we wanted to add a little bit of cool tone to the board, we included Marrakesh by Garden State Tile, a beautiful grey tile, and April to May by Curator, a unique blue paint color.

Talk Carpet’s recolor program allows you to choose any of our many carpet designs and recolor them to fit into your next design project. Additionally, we offer nine different carpet substrates, and you can get a sample within just seven business days. Our online recoloring tool allows you to play with different colors to find the one that matches the vision the best. If you want to get a geometric rug or learn more about the recolor program, please contact us.
