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

We stayed at the luxurious Prestonfield House located in Edinburgh during our Scottish travels. The building used to be residential, but has become a gorgeous hotel 60 years ago. The opulent home sits in a 20-acres garden and is very close to Edinburgh’s city center. Inside the beautiful manor, the unique rooms add to the opulent and luxurious experience of staying there. Additionally, each room exudes its own distinct flair and beauty with unique antique furniture and décor.

We stepped into a burgundy corridor when we went to our room in the Prestonfield House. Mirrors and art were covering nearly every inch of the walls. Deep red velvet covered the chairs and sideboards. However, what caught our attention was the bold stripe carpet. This carpet featured red, cream, pink, and black stripes, which added even more to the already busy corridors.

Inspired by the corridors of the Prestonfield House, we recolored Concrete Stripe by ege carpets. This carpet is part of the Easy Recolor graphic collection, which brings you bolder, geometric, linear, or polka-dotted carpet patterns. This bold stripe carpet features pink, red, and black, very similar to the one at the Prestonfield House.

Inspired by the colors of the carpet at the luxurious manor, we created a material board with it in mind. We included a black wood, like Reclaimed Blackboard Pine by Anthology Woods. Additionally, we brought in the yellow from the original carpet with Moroccan by Design and Direct Source and Rocket by Designtex. We also included Alpaca Velvet to bring in a little opulence in the material board. Lastly, we included Epoca Structure by ege carpets and Candy Cane Red by Benjamin Moore. The two tie everything in together with the different red tones.

Talk Carpet’s recolor program allows you to create the perfect bold stripe carpet in a color that best fits your next interiors project. Additionally, we offer nine different carpet substrates, and you can get a sample within just five business days.
