What is a mood?
A mood is how you want the space to feel and this will lead into your colour palette and textures. Colour has the power to set a scene and to create a mood in any room. It can be a great starting point and can tie all of your elements together.
When creating your mood board be sure to consider the style and mood you want to create!
4 tips when creating your mood board
Remember that your board is a collage as much as it is a visual representation of all the things you need to consider when decorating your space. It is a reference for you to use to display the colour, style and mood you’re hoping to achieve.
Find an image from a magazine that appeals to you. Cut it out and paste it into the middle of your mood board.
Pick out the core colour in the image and stick it to the right of your image
Pick out the other pieces of colour and texture in the image and cut squares of each colour or images that represent texture (timber, stone etc.).
Remember to keep these proportional to the amount of colour that is in the image.
Pick out appealing accessories, furniture, fabrics, art etc. that will complement your colour scheme and arrange these in a grid pattern around your board.
Allow for plenty of white space between your images.
