What is a Mood Board?

The best way to describe a mood board is a type of collage consisting of images, text and sample materials related to a design theme, which shows a client what type of atmosphere the new decor will create. It is a great way to convey your interior design idea! It allows everyone involved to agree on a direction before too much work is done.

The layout of your mood board needs to give prominence to key theme images, then surround these with smaller supporting images that enhance the theme. Images can be found online, in magazines, or even your own photos. Enhance these images with fabric samples, paint colour swatches and other materials you wish to use.

Mood boards are an essential part of successfully tackling any interior project. Do more than one. Apply your ideas. Remember, you’re trying to capture a mood.
