Bold stripe carpet exuding elegance and historical charm

Prestonfield Moodboard Talk Carpet

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. The online tool allows you to play around with the colors of our myriad of designs and get a sample. Contact us if you want to learn more about the program.

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.
