How to create a mood board

Do you want to revamp your home in a way that makes it look like it just popped out of a décor magazine? Do you want your fellow friends and neighbours to drool over your décor? Everybody comes across inspiration on a day- to- day basis that they may not be aware of. In fact, I’m certain you have that creativity in you. Yes, that’s right; you don’t necessarily need a degree in architecture or interior design to do so.  Here is how we can help put your concepts into practice:

We can understand how it may seem challenging at first. All those colors and shapes. Where to start?

The first thing is to simply start with a mood board.

Tip 1: Hey, what’s the big idea?

Okay, so this is the part where you select everything that defines your unique personality. Think about the colour of the walls and floors. Add some big furniture pieces that would fit well with your mood. Feel free to add some decorative ornaments; frames or mirrors that could help define your design even more. Stay creative and think outside the box.

Tip 2: Don’t forget what you have

… but if you do, you can always sell it on dubizzle and then we love you. Keeping what you already have in mind is going to help incorporate more harmony into your décor.

Tip 3: Print out samples

Pinterest is ‘the place’ for interior design inspiration and so is  so is Houzz. Spend a good amount of time and while you’re at it – the screenshot is from our ethnic inspiration board on Pinterest, with inspiration from dubizzle and from across the web.

Feel free to look beyond the digital world. Take photos when you’re out and about of places and objects that inspire you.

Tip 4: Take colour samples from Ace hardware or any other home hardware store

Don’t pretend like you’ve never done that before! Honestly, it’s a great way to get even more creative with colours as they have the widest selection. You are bound to find something you like that coordinates with what you have and blends in well into your home.

You are destined to run away with colours too!

Tip 5: Take your time

Everyone wishes to get things right the first time. Concentrate on what you are trying to do, or change in your home. Take your time and reflect on the long-term.

Tip 6: Stress on inspiration

If you’re going to stress out on something, let it be inspirational. You could have the most minimalistic furniture, yet some seriously innovative ideas that once implemented can leave people in awe.

Tip 7: Watch your audience faces

Watch their facial and emotive reactions as they observe your living space. Possibly the best part! 🙂

So, what’s next?
