How To Create A Mood Board For Interior Design

Our home can become not only a place of relaxation but also a source of inspiration and harmony. A well-chosen mood board will help you in this direction. Here are the steps you need to consider and take in building up a mood board for your interior design project.

Create a Comfortable Atmosphere and Harmony in Your Home

The home of a creative person, carried away by new ideas, should be in harmony with the mood and inner world of its owner. That is, to also radiate your own, unique mood. It is easy to make such a miracle by adding only one decor element - a mood boardConsider it as an assistant in achieving inner harmony. 

The mood board is not only a central place in the interior, but it is also an irreplaceable tool for designers or photographers. They compose collages of flowers or photographs of interesting objects or places to understand the principles of harmony, colour, and aesthetic.

Naturally, such a noticeable and interesting thing could not remain an exclusively applied tool in work. Moodboards have quickly become a new trend in apartments for modern and creative people who want to live in an inspiring place.

Popularity and Style

The mood board has earned much popularity among creative people because usually, a creative person collects drawings, drawings, or photographs. The best way to organise such collections is a mood board, which will turn your room into a unique space, and also give a new lease of life to old photos and magazine clippings.

The second reason for the popularity of mood boards is that they are practically cost-free. You can make the room a stylish and comfortable space for living without unnecessary investments and buying expensive decor elements.

Choosing A Mood Board

Moodboards come in a variety of materials, sizes, and even shapes. Corkboards are especially popular - you can attach photos, pictures, woven patches, and much more to them using simple pushpins.

But it is better to assemble a collage on a mood board made of plastic or wood with adhesive tape so that there are no ugly holes left on a flat surface. The best option for a classic Asian interior would be a wooden mood board in a warm shade (red or brown).

It is also important to ask yourself: What will your mood board be about? Travel? About a career? About fashion? About love? About the weather? About your favourite Netflix shows? You can, of course, make a collage of various themes, but then you will not get a single collective image. Remember: your mood board should not be confusing, but inspiring and supportive in maintaining your focus on what you want and love.

It is also important to consider the colour scheme. It should be pleasing to the eye, maintain the mood that you want to put into your collage and, of course, it should not conflict with the colour scheme of your space.

You can then proceed to the fun part of this process - drawing up a collage. To make the composition look harmonious, it is best to first collect everything you need, and then think about the content of the mood board.

For a start, you can take clippings from magazines, photographs, printouts, etc. You can also add inspirational quotes and various objects to the collage: letters and numbers carved from wood, dry twigs, paper flowers, you can even adopt a stylish hat or a small lamp - this is already a flight of your imagination and the result of your inspiration.

How To Create A Mood Board?

Despite its simplicity, there are some helpful tips to create a harmonious mood board that will delight your eye:

  • maintain a common, consistent mood board style. Try not to add elements that stand out from the general mood;
  • a well-designed mood board should evoke approximately similar emotions in most people;
  • a guarantee of a high-quality mood board - many shades of the same colour;
  • if you are using photographs, try to select images of good quality;
  • the completed mood board should not only have a unified narrative, but also a general abstract story.

Mistakes In The Creative Process

Of course, you can get carried away and make a few mistakes. Therefore, it is important to pay attention to certain details and adhere to certain principles.

  1. Avoid long phrases. The mood board is a visual object that should create associations and entertain the imagination. Having to read long phrases will not fit this format at all.
  2. Avoid platitudes. The mood board should engage your imagination by helping you create or think about something new. Banal and hackneyed photos and pictures are the worst friends of a good mood board.
  3. Do not clutter up space. Don't try to create a frame-to-frame mood board. It will look messy and out of place.

Choose The Right Place For Your Creation

The ideal place for a mood board is next to the workspace, where inspiration can help you find a non-standard solution to solve even the most common problem.

Another place suitable for a mood board is the "recreation area". Somewhere where you feel most comfortable and ready to plunge into the world of dreams and let your imagination go on an uncontrolled journey.

Remember, your mood board should reflect your wishes, feelings, and inner peace. Therefore, you can create several projects and place them in different parts of the house. A special mood board for tea ceremonies in the kitchen, a pleasant and spicy one for the bedroom, a stylish one for the living room, one set up in the office for business thoughts, and one to generate inspiration in the creative room. You can create the interior of your dreams and inspire yourself by creating wonderful masterpieces!
