Mood Boarding ~ It’s a Must!

Posted in Decor Files, Inspiration by Miss Pomp on September 13, 2012

I’m a firm believer in mood boards – as in, I won’t redecorate a room without creating a mood board. It’s just too dang helpful to NOT do. There are so many times that all of us (you, me, your neighbor, your neighbors mom) have gone out and purchased a bunch of new things only to get them home and go “Huh. That doesn’t really look like I thought it would in this room” OR “Huh. That looks okay, but there is definitely something missing. Why oh why didn’t I buy that bright pink giraffe poster!?” Okay, so maybe not a giraffe poster, but you get the point. Mood boards help you to see how things work together, but also highlight what’s missing before you’ve really even started.

To get your juices flowing, here’s a recent mood board I created for a friend with a daughter who’s towards the beginning of her teen years. They’re renters, so they’re not allowed to paint (this should be outlawed – can I get an “Amen!”), so the goal was to bring in a lot of color to the white-walled-white-carpeted room.

 

So let’s see it! Send me links to your mood boards, I wanna check ’em out!

    Mood boards are so neat. I wish I knew how to do them. Any pointers? I’m kind of a computer dolt, so I’m not sure I could ever figure it out on my own. BTW – I really like this mood board for your friend. I love that gold table lamp! Your blog reads very funny. I get a kick out of it!

    I LOVE mood-boarding…yes, I believe it should be a verb🙂 I recently did one to help me get an idea of what I wanted to do for our guest bath (link below if you’d like to see) and it has made the makeover go SO much smoother! Team Mood Board for Life!!

    Absolutely inspiring and gorgeous…what teen-aged girl wouldn’t want this room to be her little “special place in this world”?
