Rose flower carpet with a gentle nod to Casa de Sao Lourenco

Flower Carpet Rose x Casa de S Lourenco moodboard Talk Carpet

Reflecting on our past design travels, we couldn’t help but remember Casa de São Lourenço. This boutique hotel sits at the top of Serra da Estrela at a whopping 4,000 feet. There were many aspects of the hotel we love, like the panoramic views and incorporating local materials such as Burel. Burel is a local wool fabric from the area of Serra da Estrela. The little interior touches are what really make this place a celebration of Portuguese art and design. One of our favorite touches is a constellation of burel wool flowers hanging from the ceiling. The cluster of flowers hangs in the hotel’s restaurant and provides a nice ambiance while looking out over the mountains. In the daytime, you can see the rich dandelion color of the flowers, but at night, the flower shapes light up, warming up the entire dining area. This is what inspired our materials palette with the rose flower carpet. Plus, thanks to the unique burel materials the floral installation even provides acoustical benefits.

Inspired by the yellow burel flowers, we recolored our manganese drop carpet by ege into a flower carpet rose design. Keeping the palette cohesive, we use similar materials such as Otis by Jab, Eco-Cem by COVERINGS ETC, and Velvet by 4spaces. These materials are all in similar peach and light floral tones to match the flower carpet rose. To mimic the darker materials used in Casa de São Lourenço. We used a deep gray metal sheet called Engravings Matrix and paired that with a dark wooden plank from Porcelanosa called Emotions Line Veneer Finishes. To tie all the materials together, we add two different types of leather. A white embossed Foglizzo Leather called Tresse Nubuck, and a metallic gold leather from Townsend Leather called Shimmering Sprinkled Cowhide.

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.
