Tip 5 – Make your mood board beautiful!
You’ve refined your style, sourced and collected everything you need to create the room (or home) of your dreams, now it’s time to make your mood board beautiful!
If you’ve got lots of sourced images to organise and arrange, start by grouping products together in zones. For instance, place all the dining table components in one group, and all the artwork in one cluster.
It’s ok for items to overlap – you can use the ‘forward’ and ‘back’ buttons within Style Sourcebook’s mood boarding tool to push items behind or in front of others.
When placing items on the mood board, consider scale. Generally speaking, try to keep things at a scale that makes sense in the real world – you don’t want a giant pot plant towering over a tiny armchair.
It’s ok for items to be cropped – a large couch might be too big to fit on your mood board, so it’s fine to have it cropped out of the frame on one side (as we have done here), and a pendant light always look good dropping in from above!
Once you’re happy with your mood board, you can save it and download it, email it to yourself, or share with friends, family and clients – and you’ll be one step closer to making your vision a reality!
