So you’ve found yourself an interior designer, but how do you start letting them know what direction you want to go in?

One tool that designers often utilize is a mood board. If you’ve ever created a Pinterest board then you have a general idea. As with your interior designer search, starting your mood board with Pinterest online is a great idea.

However, don’t completely discount a physical mood board. As you begin to work together on your project, your designer will recommend different materials and fabrics to create the concept for your space. These, along with images that you’ve printed from Pinterest or found in magazines, plus other items that you’ve found in stores or in nature, will help create the inspiration and direction for designing and decorating your dream room.

Once you start you’ll realize that inspiration is everywhere – I’ve seen an entire room designed around one towel!

Let your imagination run wild and start your own mood board today!
