Palette with paisley carpet as a tribute to Milan based Etro

Etro paisley carpet moodboard Talk Carpet

When thinking of Bohemian luxury and paisley carpet, our minds go instantly to Etro. Founded in 1968, the brand is a family-managed Italian fashion house popular for its paisley patterns. The Milan-based label got its start as a textile company providing materials to other fashion houses. It was only in 1981 when Gerolamo Etro introduced the first paisley pattern. Since then, it has been a staple in the brand’s aesthetic. Today, Etro is known for its bohemian sensibility, rich color combinations, and iconic paisleys. The brand stays in the family and is now headed by Veronica Etro, the daughter of founder Gimmo Etro.

With such creativity and beauty in their collections, we chose paisley prints to inspire our mood board. As the backdrop, we use Bohemia RECOLORED by ege. This paisley carpet matches many of the prints of the Etro collections. Keeping everything synonymous, we used other materials from the same color palette. We used a cognac brown textile called Sateen Weave and paired that with another textile called Riann. Adding a touch of Italian luxury, we add a leather from Jerry Pair Leather called Cow Tao’. Paloma by Design and Direct Source and Linen-Like by DesignTex are materials placed right next to each other to help bring contrast to the palette. To finish the board, we use Reclaimed Teak, a wood panel by IndoTeak Design. Marooned and Barcelona Beige is tops it off by tying all the materials together.

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.
