Building a mood board is a design freak’s greatest pass time and for good reason. It’s not only your greatest asset to building an image of how you want your dream interior décor to look like but it’s a general reflection of your mood.

Whatever inspires you, strikes your fancy, and allows you to tap into your maximum creative potential is compiled onto a mood board

What is a mood board?

If your Pinterest is overflowing with multiple design ideas, you’re probably no stranger to the concept of a mood board. It is essentially a unified platform, much like a collage, used to translate a particular theme or mood or feeling. It’s the first step to making sure transient and abstract ideas are translated into tangible visuals and are a necessary precursor to any design project.

What goes into a mood board?

Since the main idea is to express a certain vibe with a mood board, they don’t have to be restricted to just images or text. You can use it as an inclusive space and add as many quotes, textures, photographs, shapes and designs.

One of the most important things in a mood board that acts as a cohesive agent is colors. Colors are a mood on their own and can really set the tone of a space you are trying to design. They can help determine how calming a room can feel. It can also be important to remind yourself what you are hoping to achieve by redesigning a space in the first place and can help make decisions accordingly.
