This desert inspired palette is the perfect neutrals for any interior

Desert Camp Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region Moodboard Talk Carpet

One of the most unique design projects in China is the Galaxy Desert campsite in the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region of the country. The service facilities center was created by 3andwich Design, a Chinese studio. The campsite features various places where people can camp in the Chinese desert and have a unique experience.

The main building of the facilities center features a stack of white cube-like shapes. Inside it, the ground floor has a reception area and restaurant. The events hall is on the second floor, and the VIP space is on the third. The upper levels open out to a terrace. The overall shape of the building was inspired by the history and myths of the desert, creating a profile excavated from the sand. The shell of the facility intends to create a cooler microclimate to prevent overheating.

Inspired by the desert campsite, we decided to use the Beige Seagrass Rug by Talk Carpet as the basis of this material board. The muted tones of the sand in the desert allowed us to create a neutral desert-inspired palette. Additionally, the facilities center of the campsite inspired us to include wood, as well as green shades and metallic tones, similar to the main structure.

For this material board, we included neutral tones similar to the rug, such as Cembrit Patina by American Fiber Cement, Naturel by Sherwin Williams, Stone House by Benjamin Moore, and Flat Woven by Curator. We also decided to include dark wood tones, such as Copper Veil by Formica and Wonderwood Walnut by Wolf Gordon. Lastly, we had Metallic Mist Transparent by Carvart to add some color to the overall palette.

Talk Carpet’s new rug shop is a great option to add just the right finishing touch to your design project with an area rug. We offer the best commercial-grade area rugs made from recycled nylon. The rug shop also features an online tool, which allows you to visualize the design and choose the size to your liking. Our standard lead time is ten weeks, including shipping.

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.
