Architectural carpet reflecting the Orquideorama canopy in Medellin

Orquideorama Moodboard Talk Carpet

In the beautiful and lush Botanical Gardens of Medellin, Colombia, lies the Orquideorama. This unique canopy, designed by Plan B Architects and JPRCR Arquitectos, is a large structure made of steel and timber. The main idea for the creation of the Orquideorama was to bring the botanical garden of Medellin to the 21st century with a modern structure. Additionally, the canopy pays homage to Jose Jeronimo Triana. Triana was a Colombian botanist, explorer, and physician in the 1800s.

The Botanical Gardens of Medellin is the home of more than 1000 animal species and more than 4500 plant species. It is a relaxing place for anyone who wants to experience the Colombian and South American environment and beautiful flora and fauna. At the gardens, you can have a picnic with the family and explore the 34 acres of land. The garden dates to the 19th century, in which it was a family restaurant and estate. Later, it became the Centennial of Independence Forest. As the city continued to add land to it, the gardens became the epicenter of Medellin.

Inspired by the uniqueness and beauty of the Orquideorama, we recolored the Architecture carpet by ege Carpets. This architectural carpet is part of the Highline Express Graphic Collection, which includes designs inspired by geometry, hoops, stripes, 3-D grids, and expressive typography. This carpet recolor brings in the warmth of the timber along with the dark navy of the night skies at the gardens. This carpet design is very similar to the mesh-like pattern of the Orquideorama.

For this material board, we wanted to include some greenery. Therefore, we included Gardens with Foliage by Garden on the Wall. Additionally, we included some textile that adds some texture to the board, such as Epoca Rustic, Reform Transition, and Drift. To bring in the timber from the Orquideorama, we included Forestree Friendly Forest by Specified Solutions. Lastly, we brought in the pops of color of the beautiful Colombian flowers in the garden. We included Blueberry Hill, Adriatic Sea, Palace Arms Red, and Paper Lantern. Lastly, to add some metallic tones akin to the steel in the Orquideorama, we included Brass by La Bastille.

We used Talk Carpet’s Easy Recolor Program to create this architectural carpet. The program allows you to recolor any of our carpet designs to fit your next interior design project. Additionally, we offer nine different substrates, and you can get a sample within just five business days. If you would like to play around with the colors of any of our designs, our online tool allows you to do just that. If you want to learn more about this program, contact us.

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. We used this to recolor our Stone Surface carpet, enabling us to source the perfect backdrop for our textured palette. Using our online tool, you can do the same. Choose from any of our collections and recolor them to match any interior. You can then visualize the carpet before ordering physical carpet samples. You’ll receive your samples within three business days at an affordable price. Contact us if you want to learn more.
