Moods and foods!


Sometimes, you want your whole life to be like food. Fresh and delicious and colorful and hardy and gentle and perishable and full of juice and whole and crunchy and salty and sweet and raw and real. 




This week, I had the opportunity to see the fascinating compilations of the Mood Boards created by Rugs by Raj. They come up with a seasonal theme, like slow food, and then scour popular culture for inspirations. One of the parallels was the color, architecture and emotion of food. Different vegetables, fruits, grains have different aesthetics and these can be composed to create an entire color palette for a theme. 

  

Additionally, food is universal. At the Rugs by Raj factories, small town people are weaving tapestries that find their way to the largest and most beautiful homes in the world. Though strangers to each other, they are borne of the same element. 


Here is the Eco Chic mood board compiled with a 'plate' of food. Each color of food provides a nurtritional value as it does an aesthetic one on textiles, and when combined, they look beautiful, maintain a balanced diet which lends to the harmony of the mind and the body. See the parallels?
