HOW TO CREATE A MOOD BOARD

Friday, 1 November 2013
         One of the first things we learn in Design School is to EXPRESS our ideas, inspirations, and visions in a VISUAL FORM. Every great project revolves around the preliminary phase of design. By gathering our inspirations, we create a concept which leads us to the next step in our project. The concept is the BASE of your design.

* * * HOW TO BEGIN? * * *
      1. If you are creating a mood for a particular space, find an image on the internet that reflects the style you'd like that room to resemble or feel like. One of my favorite ways to gather inspiration is through PINTEREST. Once you created an account, you can start pinning away! The advantage of having a PINTEREST is that you can separate different inspirations on multiple boards.
   2. If you don't find PINTEREST to work well for your project, you can create Mood Boards via online software such as: 
      3. Once you have gathered your images, consider common colors that seem to repeat.      This way, your color for finishing (eg. lampshades, cushions, rugs, etc...) will be determined. 

The Mood Board below was used as a concept to redesign a transitional tunnel.
4. Mood boards can also be create as a hard copy. They can be done on an illustration board (which you can purchase at your local craft store). Simply print out inspirational photos or cut them out of a magazine and mount them to the board.
