Besides Egypt’s famous hieroglyphs, pyramids and tombs, there is so much more to see beyond the beautiful historical landmarks. You can find inspiration from architecture strolling through the neighborhoods of Egypt. Egyptian architecture uses a lot of mud and brick in the construction of homes. On our recent trip, we spotted a glossy blue door on an Egyptian mud-brick home.
The white panels are unique because they are molded panels cut out and placed over the door. The top panel on top of the door has white carvings resembling clouds and the moon. These symbols are inside temples and ancient Egyptian monuments. The patterns are often symbolic of Egyptian culture and history and are similar to the hieroglyphs that ancient Egyptian houses use. From the top of the door to the bottom, the blue creates an array of shades consisting of a lighter blue to darker cobalt.
Similarly, the other image is a door on a colonial French door inset in an Arabic style wall feature. The window panels are missing from deterioration, but the chipped walls match the rustic vibe. The fading green color of the french doors matches the blue that is seen in Moroccan and Middle Eastern architecture. The shape of the blue arch on the top, followed by the panels on the right and left, is often used in Moroccan decor. When looking closely, you can see the hand carvings inside the door panels. The carvings are patterns containing many X’s inside the rectangular panels.
For our beautiful mood board, we take inspiration from both images onto one material palette. Flax recolored is a monolithic carpet tile by ege. The new color palette is a faded beige and blue blend that resembles the Egyptian mud-brick home. Hashtag by Carnegie is a soft stain-resistant textile. ReForm A New Wave Sand resembles the dunes of Egypt with similar patterns. Bantry, Klinker, Billie Ombre, Saloon, Lunar, Como Emboss are other contract materials that mimic the appearance of the fading doors. Leather Essentials Cowhide (LES) in Abstract Squares Pattern is a velvet texture in a sandy beige tone.
