Designers use mood or concept boards to convey the overall feel of a project, putting together images and objects which inspire, target desires and creativity and innovation.
Mood boards are also very useful at the early stages of a project as a guide tool to show to clients for approval before proceeding further.
The items on a board would include samples of fabric, wallpaper samples, Paint colours, Flooring, and pictures or photographs of furniture that you want to incorporate in your design.
I always advise clients to have a mood/concept board done as it will give them a great idea of how the room will look like when it’s finished.
Below are a few examples of mood or concepts boards for a variety of projects.
