  • COLOR - HOW CAN WE HELP? .  What color product would you like us to create? .  So we learned in our newsletter survey this past week that as an Eclectic Trends reader you are very interested in receiving information everything spinning around color. We already knew how powerful color as a trigger is, but it was great to get that confirmation again.
From color samples, to material boxes, color psychology and ‘How to apply color’ tutorials, you asked for a wide range of color based tools.
.  NOW: I’d love to hear from you, too, dear IG friends and readers:
.  1: Is there anything you would like us to cover colorwise?
2: What do you struggle with the most when it comes to talk/apply color in your industry?
.  Thank you so much for tuning in, even more if you have been a loyal silence follower so far, we love to hear your thoughts!
.  Meanwhile, today’s post Color Inspiration No.26 balances dark nuances with warmer tones that we have been spotting often lately in a “Modern meets Ancient” combination.
The color combination we have picked here combines an empowering, dusty black background with warmer shades, that evoke the much needed comforting coziness of our everyday lives . On the other side, the Prussian blue and the neutral beige add a refreshing, cooler touch. Continue reading on Eclectic Trends via link in bio. Thank you. .  #color #colorful #colored #colortrends #colorboard #moodboard #moodboarding #colorpalette #colorscheme #colortrend2019

  • IT’S OFFICIAL!
. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So this is going to be real. I had planned this for more than two years! And never found the time. Until I hired a crew, paid flight tickets and rented a studio to force myself to stop and make this happen. The old trick still works🤪 . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The masterclass is going online after having worked in the last years with more than 1000 students coming from corporate and entrepreneur environments. . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
All my knowledge will be available and shared with you in English and Spanish. The course is thought for anybody who needs a tactile business tool to gain clarity and communicate like a pro with a well-studied visual storytelling. You will get away from your screen 🙌, work with your hands again 🙌, and stand out in a rather competitive market 🙌. But hey, this is just a first intro. The ‘in-depth’ explanations come later 🤣 Also, you know by now what the masterclass is about, right? 😉
. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am producing already, filming starts next week, post-production will be finished later this Autumn. . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And I will explain much more in the days and weeks to come. Come over to the new account of the @moodboardacademy for all the bits of making-of! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I will share snippets of the process and give you a little behind the scenes feeling the upcoming days:) . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #moodboard #moodboarding #Eclectictrendsstudio #howtocreateamoodboard #sampleboard #materialboard #moodboardacademy
  • AN ACT OF REBELLION AGAINST FAST FASHION
.  Commissioned by the Energy and Raw Material Factory, Dutch designer @studio_nienkehoogvliet used a byproduct from the wastewater treatment process to create the beautiful pattern on this kimono.
.  Of most concern to Nienke is the heavy pollution that is generated in the process of dyeing textiles. .  70% of China’s rivers are polluted with chemicals because of wastewater from textile dye factories. The chemicals influence hormones, causing serious health and environmental effects. .  Therefore, she set out to research how a new material from wastewater, Kaumera (a raw material extracted from wastewater), could contribute to reducing the damage.
.  Nienke wants consumers to value textiles and clothing more while at the same time making production processes more sustainable. 
She discovered that Kaumera makes textile absorb dyes better, so less water is needed and less is polluted. .  To add color to the textiles, she used two natural dyes extracted from wastewater: Anammox and Vivianite.
.  The Kaumera Kimono is an act of rebellion against fast fashion. A Kimono is passed on for generations being cherished and invites to reflect on how clothing can be valued in a different way. .  #sustainabledesign #sustainablestyle #sustainablelifestyle #sustainableclothing  #kaumera #nienkehoogvliet
  • INSTAGRAM DESIGN
.  With an IG account, nothing short of amazing, the brief for their first retail space would specifically include “to cater primarily to the brand's diverse Instagram demographic”.
.  We know that means you will get a rather eclectic or pastel-like version to fit current tastes. 
The product @milktraincafe offers has such a strong, almost surrealistic signature, it was only natural to bring that feeling to the London store space designed by Shoreditch-based studio @formroomuk.
.  The name itself would allow for enough room to play and come up with obvious train interiors. 
Seating booths numbered like train platforms have been completed in pale blue leather, and one can’t help but think of a subtle nod to Wes Anderson’s world.

  • CONTEMPORARY DIM SUM
. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This restaurant located in Hong Kong is named after John Anthony, the first Chinese-born man and British citizen in 1805. His job was to provide food and lodging to Chinese sailors when working for the East India Company in London. . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Design studio @Line__house’s co-founder Alex Mok describes the result as a ‘British tea hall turned Chinese canteen’ focusing on the fusion of colonial architecture blurred with eastern features. Cross-cultural projects are just great! . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

  • A REVIEW
. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have published today many images and explanations on what happened last week during our Trend Talk & Food Design Event we designed together with @elsayranzo for the @barcelonadesignweek . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The idea behind was to design a program that would unite a 90 min. Trend Lecture on 3 Interior Design & Lifestyle Trends 2020 with a food installation translating every single trend into a tangible product.
. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Let’s say, we wanted to offer both, an intellectual take combined with a sensorial interactive experience.
. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The KNOWMADISM fans would be able to cut vegan skin made out of soy( and this is what we are ‘wearing’ on the image above) into edible pieces and fill these with yummy toppings, it was all about being flexible and adapt to personal needs…
. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The REGENERATION fans could taste food made from waste and appreciate how delicious it was…
. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The SELF-ACTUALIZATION type could fill sweet chocolate container with what they specifically needed that day. Ingredients, including CBD would provide more mindfulness, energy or good sleep. The trend talk about personalization of needs (not style or taste) and that is what we had in mind…
. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We enjoyed the day very much because besides being hosts, we actually enjoyed the experience ourselves too.
. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Huge thanks to my partner in crime Elsa, chef Xavi from @hidddenfactory and @carladeltoro for the pics.
A especial mention to the Eclectic Trends ladies @vidabarceloni and @giugiulatina!

  • BOOMING MARKET
.  No, this is not another beauty store or yoga studio (see next image), but a rooftop where educational workshops and community events focus on CBD.
.  CBD (Cannabidiol) products are the latest must-try in the plant-based wellness world.
Standard Dorse is a three-storey shop located in NYC, and offers a lighter strain of cannabis that can be used to reduce stress and anxiety, and induce calming effects.

  • KNOWMADISM es una de las tendencias que explicaré la semana que viene en la que es la única conferencia de tendencias con acceso abierto este año durante el marco de la @BarcelonaDesignWeek 2019. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Knowmadism reflexiona sobre lo mucho que nos movemos, sea dentro de la ciudad, hacia las ciudades y lo flexible y versátiles que han de ser los productos y servíos que las marcas nos van a tener que ofrecer para que se adapten a nuestras necesidades. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Somos nómadas, y no solo por distancias geográficas, sino también porque vayamos a dónde vayamos, nos llevamos nuestro conocimiento y lo compartimos. Los Knowmadas son/somos society changers. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tenemos muchas ganas de que pases una mañana con nosotras porque @elsayranzo y no solo queremos compartir contigo 3 Future Ways of Living (dentro y fuera de casa) sino que traduciremos después las 3 tendencias en una propuesta gastrónoma-artística. Vas a poder oler, tocar, ver, saborear conceptos intelectuales de una forma más sensorial. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
