Mood Boarding ~ It’s a Must!
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!
