8 Hot Tips for Designing a Moodboard
  1. Have you fallen in love with a piece of hero furniture (new or old) or a striking pendant light? If so, start by placing (i.e. screenshot on a word document) this on the page front and centre. This item will form the basis of your room (bingo)!
  2. Add flooring from the onset, such as a timber or vinyl plank flooring, bamboo or plush carpet. In our experience you’ll gravitate towards light or dark tones or simply, you may be required to match existing (easy). Place your flooring material in a large sample size to the bottom of the page.
  3. Brainstorm a cohesive colour scheme generally using a maximum of three tones e.g. White, Green, Mustard or White, Grey and Pink. Screenshot paint swatches, brush strokes or soft furnishings in these tones and group them together on the page.
  4. Think about elements you’ve already have gathered for the space and incorporate your personal touch, this may include framed artwork, floor rugs, a quilt cover or coloured cutlery set.
  5. Cushions and bespoke upholstery are always a great way to soften any space. Try and incorporate linens for a Hobbs country-style look.
  6. Always add greenery via pot plants or blooms to instantly freshen the moodboard and bring “life” to the page.
  7. Hot Tip: Try swapping in-and-out accent colours until you get the perfect ambient “feeling” you’re hoping to achieve. We often find colours you’d hoped to include may just now feature as accents in soft furnishings instead of larger ticket items.
