Inspiration images and sketches can really help a client understand what their designs will look like. Going from vision to reality requires not only a lot of planning but also requires a lot of inspiration. Like many designers, mood boards are a crucial part of envisioning a project at it's most raw state. A mood board is a collection of images, shapes, patterns, fabrics, and art, that work to create a cohesive aesthetic that can later be translated into a magnificent design.
Creating a mood board can be overwhelming for someone who doesn't know where to start. An artist may start by flipping through a design book or by looking at fabrics. We additionally recommend utilizing Pinterest.com as a tool to find unique and artistic photos. The most important thing is to have fun. The goal is to create a board that is cohesive, we recommend looking for color swatches that work together and are pleasing to the eye. Similar tones and complimentary colors can all work to create a unique aesthetic.
By planning out your idea in the form of a mood board, you open up your design to a realm of possibilities. A mood board will allow you to take the creativity of any project to the next level.
