We got to visit the Summer Exhibition 2021 at the Royal Academy London where every year, at the academy, an artist coordinator directs a show. This year was Yinka Shonibare’s turn to meet with the committee and review entries to get the show put together. The 253rd summer exhibition’s theme is reclaiming magic. RA received over 15,000 entries this year, of which 1,300 works of art were on display in this exhibition. The summer exhibitions have been happening since 1769. Additionally, it brings together artists of a myriad of mediums, household names, and emerging artists.
The Royal Academy has been around for over 250 years. RA does not only host exhibitions all year round, but it also offers courses for artists who want to learn to perfect their craft. Additionally, the academy is led by practicing artists and elected by their peers in recognition of their work. The royal academicians donate one of their artworks to the RA’s collection when elected. RA has a breathtaking treasure trove of British Art, which you can explore online. If you want to check out the Royal Academy 2021 Summer Exhibition, you can buy tickets from their website.
Inspired by the artworks in the summer exhibition, we recolored the Full Bloom carpet. This floral pattern carpet is a part of the nature collection. The main inspiration behind the collection was to bring the beauty found in nature into your next interiors project. We chose to bring in brighter colors to the floral pattern carpet for this recolor.
We included green tones like Hollywood Gold by Benjamin Moore and Talipot Palm by Sherwin-Williams for the material board. Additionally, we included light neutral tones, such as the Modern Farmhouse White Ash and Silkx Raw. We added some texture with Sand by Cortina Leathers and Zellige by Riad Tile. Lastly, we added some darker tones with Stitch by Bernhardt Textiles and Plum Martini by Benjamin Moore.
Talk Carpet’s recolor program allows you to create the perfect floral pattern carpet in any color you’d like. Additionally, we offer nine different carpet substrates, and you can play around with our online tool to find the perfect carpet for your next interiors project. Not to mention that you can get a sample within just five business days. Contact us if you want to learn more about the program.
