Suede carpet putting the ruffles in this materials palette

Botero moodboard Talk Carpet

Fernando Botero is a Colombian artist who painted overtly round figures and still life subjects. Mostly known as Botero, the artist had worked as a set designer and illustrator at the start of his career. At the age of 21, he moved to Paris and visited the Louvre Museum often. At the museum, he studied the baroque period pieces and was particularly inspired by the works of Ruben, who also used rotund figures in his work.

Botero’s paintings and sculptures are very distorted and exaggerated in scale. He has painted and sculpted a wide variety of subjects from serious and topical to whimsical and funny. Additionally, Botero’s pieces are very large, making it quite a dramatic experience when seeing one in person. Botero uses a lot of color in his work, but nothing is too bright. His work is very pleasing to the eye when it comes to color.

Inspired by the Colombian artist’s work, we created a suede carpet recolor with the Velours carpet. We were particularly inspired by Botero’s use of color in his paintings. The bright greens and oranges paired with neutral browns and creams create a harmonious yet entrancing work of art. Keeping that in mind, we created a material board centered around the mixture of neutral and bright colors like Botero’s paintings.

In this material board, we decided to pair different textures of neutral colors to go with the Velours RECOLORED by ege carpets, like the wood of Kaolin, the darkness of Mink, and the unique texture of Sanzibar. Additionally, we included light colors like Neenish by Walker Zanger and Playful Plum by Dunn-Edwards Paints. Lastly, we included greens that add just the right pop of color to the board. Chaps by Cortina Leathers is a beautiful bright green that pops against the browns of the recolored suede carpet and Vector by Burch adds more texture in a more subdued green tone.

Talk Carpet’s recolor program allows you to create the perfect suede carpet in a color that fits perfectly into your next project. We offer nine different carpet substrates, and you can get a sample within five business days. This tool allows you to play around with the colors of our designs before you decide on a color sample.

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.
