Pro Tips for Creating a Mood Board

In the modern day Interior Design Studio, an Interior Designer has many different options when it comes to choosing how they will present his/her ideas to a client, whether this is in person or via an e-design service.  This is primarily due to incredible advancements in technology, where image editing and 3D software are now considered essential components within an Interior Designer’s toolbox.

But there’s one traditional communication method that still serves a very important function, and that’s the humble Mood Board.  They can be a touchy-feely playground of various fabrics, finishes and (sometimes) sketches:

To entirely digital offerings, that can be presented using a laptop, at a client meeting, or included in an e-design package and pinged to a client in a matter of minutes:

Mood Boards have their place in the Interior Design process, because they are such an eye-catching, compact and informative snapshot of a proposed design.  They happily support the Interior Designer when communicating his/her design, with their lighthearted display of products, styles and colours.  AND, they can also be a very useful branding and marketing tool.  These little visual gems can be used in portfolios, website/blog content and social media activity.

In an industry where visual aesthetics is super important, it’s IMPERATIVE that Interior Designers equip themselves with the necessary skills and knowledge to produce Mood Boards that are well structured and professional in appearance.

At the SketchUp Hub, we love the convenience and creative opportunities that digital Mood Boards offer, and we’ve seen many Designers struggle with the curation of the more fluid styles of these simple but highly effective visual tools.  So we’ve decided to provide you with some tips on how to create a digital Mood Board that is visually pleasing, creative and professional in appearance.

    • Hi Krystie! The free download has changed from this blog post was published! When you registered you would have received an email with a download link to my new PDF on how to produce accurate, professional and creative floor plans. But I’m in a good mood today, so I’m going to email you a link to the mood board PDF too 🙂
