Geometric rug design reflecting juxtaposed architecture of Bogota

Bogota Juxtaposed Architecture Moodboard Talk Carpet

In Bogota, Colombia, we visited the oldest part of the city. La Candelaria is full of narrow cobblestone streets, pastel-colored houses, churches, and graffiti walls. Additionally, the area features some beautifully restored houses, while others have dilapidated as time went on. At the heart of this part of the city lies the Plaza de Bolivar. It features a statue of Simon Bolivar, sculpted back in 1846. Additionally, in La Candelaria, you can find the Botero Museum, the opera house, government buildings, and hotels in a beautiful and unique mix of neo-classical and modern architecture.

Inspired by the colors of a row of two-story buildings in La Candelaria, we recolor the Colour Cubes carpet. This geometric rug features orange, yellow, and blue colors, much like the colors of the buildings in the Colombian barrio. Additionally, this geometric carpet is a great option that ties in both cold and warm tones for any interior design project.

With the recolored geometric rug in mind, we created a material board in a similar color combination. We included beige tones like Cote d’Or by Haussmann Natural Stone, Reclaimed Grandstand Pine by Anthology Woods, and Corfu by 4Spaces. To add some unique texture to the material board, we included Signal by KnollTextiles, which is a beautiful sandy ombre textile. Additionally, we wanted to add a little bit of cool tone to the board, we included Marrakesh by Garden State Tile, a beautiful grey tile, and April to May by Curator, a unique blue paint color.

Talk Carpet’s recolor program allows you to choose any of our many carpet designs and recolor them to fit into your next design project. Additionally, we offer nine different carpet substrates, and you can get a sample within just seven business days. Our online recoloring tool allows you to play with different colors to find the one that matches the vision the best. If you want to get a geometric rug or learn more about the recolor program, please 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.
