Mood and Inspiration Portfolio

Mood and Inspiration Portfolio – An inspiration board (or mood board) helps home decorators visualize their interior design ideas. This method allows you to rapidly narrow down potential design elements, color palettes, fabrics and textures, furniture pieces, window treatments, and accessories in order for you to quickly develop a cohesive home décor style. Whether you’re designing your first space or undertaking an entire home makeover, creating a mood board is an essential step toward making the right choices for your home decor.

What is your style?

1st Step – General Moodboards

When creating your initial general mood board it’s best to be open-minded, focusing on things that speak positively to you such as colors, textures, animals, flowers, plants, furniture pieces, or even places like the beach or mountains. You can also include items that are already part of your existing tastes and interests like favorite teas or movies or hobbies. By combining elements in this way you can create a unique vision that resonates with who you are so when decorating your space it will have meaning every time you look at it.

General Moodboard – Styles You Like

A general mood board helps to define your personal design elements which are in harmony with who you are. This also allows you to evaluate existing elements as well as expand your creative vision for the intended space. Gather all the items into one place and look for any commonalities such as wall colors, architectural designs, furnishings, and decor pieces — all of these items should be reflective of what brings you comfort and joy. Ultimately, your goal is to have an interior design style that not only looks good but also feels amazing!

Perhaps you are drawn to the stark black and white, or the geometric shapes, or maybe you like the softer seaside elements, you might even be drawn to the rustic elements.

2nd Mood board = Your Style

Once you have completed the general mood board step then you can move to the second step in finding your interior design style. With this information in mind, create a second mood board that features these common elements and pictures of designs that include them. This should help narrow down your preferred style, allowing you to develop an actual design plan. Taking inspiration from multiple sources can be the key to finding your ideal interior look!

If you were drawn to the softer seaside elements your second mood board design might look like this.

How to use an interior design mood board?

A mood board is a great way of visualizing colors, textures, and materials you’d like to include in an interior design project. It can be an effective way to visualize ideas, concepts, and design inspiration for any room in the home. To create a mood board, you will need magazines, fabric swatches, paint chips, and other examples of materials you plan to use. Then arrange them together on a canvas or piece of poster board until you have created a coherent vision of the look and feel of your desired space. You can easily create a digital mood board as well using online resources.
