Materials palette with a Portuguese inspired herringbone carpet

Herringbone carpet x burel moodboard Talk Carpet

During our travels in Portugal, we visited the Burrel Wool Factory in the Serra da Estrela. The factory’s current owners acquired it in the early 2000s, but the factory is much older. We were able to see beautiful 19th-century machinery weaving unique color combinations of wool. Old loom masters were training the new generation about the Burel’s tradition.

We were particularly inspired by a combination of warm orange and cream colors that one of the machines was weaving. This color combination would be especially beautiful in the Herringbone carpet from the Essentials collection, which has a strong focus on timeless textures and carpet patterns that are sure to look great in any project.

Since the warm-toned herringbone carpet is the protagonist of this material board, we wanted to complement it with dark blues like Pal Dp Flynn Strie and Lost Coast, which add some depth. We also included some textured textiles in neutral colors like Kabuto by Designtex, Linosa by Vescom, and Husk by Febrik. Additionally, we included even more texture with Nature Sumatra by Tile Bar and Eco-Terr Tiles by Coverings ETC. We also included gray-toned materials like Zellige and Dekton Soke to add some cool tones. Garcia Glow adds just the right amount of color to the overall look and some unique textures. Lastly, Empathy by Valley Forge Fabrics is the perfect shade of orange that matches the herringbone carpet.

Talk Carpet’s Easy Recolor program allows you to recolor any of our many carpet designs. You can also choose any of our nine substrates and create the carpet that fits your project’s budget and feel. Our online recolor tool allows you to visualize what your carpet looks like easily, and our team can help you with anything you may need.

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.
