DESIGN + COLOUR CONSULTING
I support global and local brands, retailers and manufacturers to confidently update their offering. My concepts will inspire you from product creation through to styling and promotion.

TREND FORECASTING
Feeling slightly overwhelmed? I develop spot-on trend stories relevant to your market. As a specialist for the design and lifestyle industries, I inform you of what will be important in the seasons to come.

CREATIVE DIRECTION + EDITING
I point you in the right direction with original mood boards, bespoke colour palettes, directional visuals, engaging narratives and editorial pieces connecting you with your audience.

WORKSHOPS + PANELS
Adequately sharing knowledge and constructive feedback make staff training and collaborations with me special. I am experienced in hosting and contributing to expert panels.

SPEAKING
You can book me for an interview or a bespoke keynote talk on design, colour and trends. I also offer some of my expertise pro bono at Clubhouse, where I co-host the club TREND FORECASTING. Follow me @alinaschartner

INTERIOR DESIGN + HOME STAGING
For the last 14 years, my professional focus was on how people want to live and work. These days I mostly guide businesses, but sometimes I take on private commissions to create the right look and feel.

MENTORING
My biggest talent is, to make people see untapped potentials. As a mentor I empower others on their creative path; with (video) 1:1 sessions, CV, portfolio + online profile improvement and help with applications.
