Is there any advice or perhaps a tutorial on how to create mood boards and choosing the right color pallettes? I saw your video on how to become an interior designer & that’s been my dream since a child although I just started college at 23 (decided to sit out a semester & ended up being years lol! worst choice I’ve made btw!) but I would like to get better with my mood boards because sometimes I feel like I don’t choose the right colors or perhaps add too much in a small space or want to put so much and it ends up looking like a big bowl of slop! ):
Thanks for posting!! Congrats on school! Mood boards are a great tool and lots of fun to get inspired for/by and make, but I can understand the trickiness of finding the right balance!
For color palettes, it is helpful to draw first from one or a few main inspiration images. When designing for clients for OMG We’re Coming Over, Breaking Beige, or other situations, I try to find the common color themes between the images they send me as inspiration for their rooms. Even if this exercise only gives you one main color, you can use Pinterest to look up lots of color palettes based on that color, see what fits the vibe you’re going for, and use that as a guide!
When deciding how much or how little to put in a room, I find that a floor plan really does help. Seeing everything mapped out, understanding the proportions and how each piece plays off the others. This will help you identify if there is too much packed in, or if there are empty spaces that could use a little more decorative love.
