Nature inspired carpet inspired by this Parisian hotspot

Winter garden at hotel de la paiva Moodboard Talk Carpet

Located in Champs-Elysees, the Hotel de la Paiva was built between 1856 and 1866. The hotel was built by Esther Lachmann, also known as La Paiva, who was born in Moscow to Polish parents. She married into wealth and became part of the elite. Before the Hotel de La Paiva, she had already acquired a mansion in Place Saint-Georges. Additionally, she received many notable people at the hotel, including the Goncourt brothers, Theophile Gautier, and Hippolyte Taine.

The hotel was created by Pierre Manguin, who used the Italian renaissance as the main inspiration for the building. He worked with various sculptors and painters to create the work of art the hotel is now. The hotel brings in the classic renaissance gold and onyx details combined with the beauty and lushness of the greenery. The winder garden in the hotel features beautiful molding, luscious greenery, and vintage furniture.

Inspired by the winter garden in Hotel de La Paiva, we decided to create a nature-inspired carpet. Our Amazone carpet is part of the nature collection, which takes forests, deserts, and oceans as the inspiration for the carpet designs. The recolor features deep green in contrast with a lighter green. The light green pays homage to the details on the walls of the winter garden. The darker green pays homage to the furniture and the greenage of the same color.

Taking the winter garden and the nature-inspired carpet as inspiration, we created a material board full of unique patterns and materials that complement the carpet. We included beautiful pattern materials like Arc Vertical Soul by Elizabeth Sutton and Braga Classic II by SomerTile. We also included lighter materials that add more patterns to the board, including Pixa Grid and Oceanic. Additionally, we added neutral and green textiles like Skipper by Posh Textiles, Hailey by Revolution Performance Fabrics, and Llinen by Luna Textiles. We included Santos Moroccan, Barnwood Decking, and Underseas to tie everything together.

Our Easy Recolor program allows you to recolor any of our many carpet designs like our nature inspired carpet. Additionally, you can choose any of our nine carpet substrates to take your project to the next level. The online tool allows you to visualize what the recolor will look like easily, and you can get your carpet within three weeks. Contact us if you want to learn more.

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.
