We are so excited to welcome yet another fantastic artist to the JUMBLED family... Belen from Ran Ran Design. Belen creates stunning handmade rope wall hangings in her studio in Barcelona. Inspired by her mediterranean lifestyle, she combines natural yarns and dyes to create her woven artworks. We just can't get enough of her vibrant, unusual pieces, so we were super excited when she agreed to let us interview her!
Describe your perfect day in Barcelona:
I normally start my day with a fresh glass of oat milk at my desk, and then I meditate for 20 minutes. I'll go to the gym, check my emails and then I'm ready to start work! If I'm working on a new collection I just play with colours and ropes to see how they fit. I don't make any sketches or anything, I just let my hands work. I let my inspiration flow naturally. I'll have lunch and then I like a good siesta. It's nice to feel the warmth of the sun while I sleep! I love having control over my time, I can decide when I have time for friends, work, the beach or walks.
Where do you find your inspiration?
I'm fortunate enough to travel often and this is my main inspiration. Every country has something beautiful to offer, and I love the colour and the experiences. Of course Pinterest and social media inspires us all!
Favourite colour combination:
I love when I dye and the rope takes on beautiful colours. Every colour is so powerful and unique. Today I mixed a batch of coral (using Moroccan dyes) and some light green. They both look amazing and I can't wait to use them. I don't really have favourites.
How would you describe your style at home:
It's quite eclectic, fresh and calm; most of the stuff was refurbished or made by me. I have a big anchor covered in lights, and a huge hammock in the living room, and it's decorated with things from my travels. It's a very special place, vibrant and peaceful at the same time!
What do you think creates the perfect living space:
Love! Love everywhere! I love when everything has meaning behind it, and a story to tell. When you buy things made with love, that love spreads and helps connect people. That's what makes a perfect living space.
We can't wait to stock Ran Ran Designs' handmade art pieces, and we're sure that you'll love them too! A huge thank you to Belen for this wonderful interview, we are just too excited to welcome you to the family!
