Kicking off Christmas with this mood board

Green Mantle Moodboard

This is definitely a year in which we don’t need to feel like we’re starting the festive season too soon. More than any year, we can use the warmth and happy emotions linked to the Holidays. So at Talk Carpet, we decided to dedicate December to this festive spirit. We plan to get you in a complete Holiday mood through our weekly mood boards and custom pattern concepts.

For our first Chirstmas themed materials board we are taking inspiration from a minimal mantle decor by blogger Jessica Sara Morris. We love the green contrasting shades with the stark white of the line art and the off-white Christmas stockings.

Our mood board features two carpets from ege carpets. The main feature is a recolored version of the design Stripy Velvet Green by ege carpets. As part of the Highline Express tiles concept, you can select a pattern and custom color it with only a 50 sq yard order minimum.  The second carpet on our Christmas materials board is the brand new flat weave carpet tile Una Brick Ecotrust. This new low-cost flatwoven carpet is ideal for office projects as a general workplace carpet. The collection comes in 12 colors, of which 6 can be installed as monolithic carpet tiles.

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.
