A material palette perfect for a neutral Interior design

Bea Valdes Design Moodboard Talk Carpet

Bea Valdes is a renowned Filipino accessories designer from a family that has been involved in the fine jewelry business for three generations. Therefore, she knows the ins and outs of the industry. Valdes’ first bag collection was launched in 2004. Her pieces showcased an intricate work of semi-precious stones, beads, crystals, fabrics, and feathers. Valdes has also dabbled in furniture design in collaboration with Philux. The Hearth Collection featured Valdes’ playful painting technique and handiwork.

In September of 2022, Bea Valdes was named Vogue Philippines’ editor-in-chief. Unlike other editors-in-chief of the magazine, Valdes does not come from an editorial or styling background. However, she has made a name for herself and was featured in Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, the New York Times, CNN, Financial Times, and Time.

Inspired by Bea Valdes’ designs, we recolored the Concrete Relief carpet. This carpet is part of the Highline Express Graphics Collection, which features designs inspired by geometry, hoops, stripes, three-dimensional grids, and expressive typography. This recolor helped us create a material board that can create a neutral interior design.

With the recolored carpet and Valdes’ designs in mind, we created a material board in neutral tones featuring various textures. We brought various stones like Novabell Sovereign by Conestoga Tile, Aggregato Terrazzo by Design and Direct Source, Skinny Stone Veneer by Karen Pearse Global Direct, and Lundhs Blue® by Lundhs Real Stone. We also brought a warm brown with Lake Placid Crypton by Designtex. Lastly, we included neutral and warm-toned paints like Bridgewater Tan by Benjamin Moore and Maple Valley by Benjamin Moore.

If you want to find the perfect color for one of our many carpet designs, Talk Carpet’s recolor program is ideal for you. You can choose any of our nine carpet substrates to take your project to the next level. Additionally, our online tool lets you quickly visualize what the recolor will look like. You can get your carpet in just three weeks. Contact us to learn more.

Sitting right next to Pompidou in Paris is Atelier Brancusi. This place is a reconstruction of the studio of renowned Romanian-born artist Constantin Brancusi. In the atelier, there are 137 sculptures, 87 bases, 41 drawings, two paintings, and more than 1600 grass photographic plates and prints by the artist.

Brancusi died in 1957, leaving behind a lot of his work in his studio, which consisted of 11 joined studios. The Romanian artist would break down walls to adjoin studios and create various environments to exhibit his work. He considered the relationship between sculptures and the space they occupied to be of crucial importance.

In 1997, the Atelier Brancusi as we know it today opened its doors on the esplanade of the Center Pompidou. So much of Brancusi’s work is on display at the atelier, giving you an idea of how much the artist put into the world. There are wood and plaster sculptures, bronze colonnades, animal shapes, and photographic studies. It is a beautiful and inspiring place to visit.

Inspired by the stone and natural textures of Brancusi’s work, we recolored the Stone Surface carpet. This is part of the nature collection by ege carpets, which takes inspiration from forests, deserts, and oceans. This light recolor of the carpet allows you to bring a textured palette to your next interior design project.

We created a material board that focuses on a textured palette with the atelier colors and the recolored carpet in mind. We included dark woods like Texas Mesquite 83000 and Artisanal Hardwoods. Keeping the dark brown theme, we also included different textured textiles like Artisan Textured Finishes by CopperSmith, Basketcase by Cortina Leathers, Lafayette Velvet by Opuzen, and Chesney by Valley Forge Fabrics. Additionally, we decided to bring some lighter tones of cream and white by adding Cove, True Terrazzo, Concrete Look Porcelain Paver, and Passion. To tie in the soft colors with the dark ones, we included mid-toned neutral paints like Crewel Tan by Sherwin-Williams and Mesa Tan by Dunn-Edwards Paints.

If you like our textured palette, you might be interested in our Easy Recolor Program.
