Jane, how do you get inspired and always new ideas are coming in your mind?
My inspiration is my environment and probably also how i grow up. My family is a visionary family with huge ideas and they are all makers. Thanks to them. Often when i talk to people, about their wishes and dreams, ideas are coming in my mind how to realize them in a strategic way. I just would love them to see how the people around me are growing. Often people have awesome ideas, but sometimes the vision is missing and this is all what i do. I give them the tools to make it real.
On which projects are you currently working?
One of my current project is giving Kula Berlin a base to walk on. After Kula Berlin will establish i would love to focus on a on going project in Italy. More you will see in the upcomming month.
You are choosing colors and the essential oils and the mixtures of them to create a unique essence. Where do you get inspired by?
Most of my inspiration of perfume and smell i get on my trips in Italy, France, Marocco and Turkey. In these countries you can find always someone who work with flower essentials. As well i love italian smells like Marsiglia or just if you hike up the mountains, the natures smell is awesome.
We all know you are enjoying to cook. What was the last ingredients you cooked with?
I cooked with Safran from Abruzzo and Truffle. Both are grounded and are fitting perfectly in autumn time. But the most simple thing after work is always a Pasta Aglio Oglio e Peperocini. Here at Kula Berlin you can also get some products im using. Like Truffle and Safran or organic Olive oil or some chutneys. These are always nice canapés with a small aperitif like Spritz or Negroni.
What is your motto?
It’s depends on the situation and in which environment im in. But mostly this would fit always:
“Everything is possible, just do it.”
