Buy a large foam board and pins from an art or stationary shop and collate samples, images, samples of the fabrics, wallpapers, furniture and flooring that you might want to use. Pin them on the board to see how they all work together. Don’t be afraid to add textures with flooring, rugs and fabrics such as velvet, wool, and tweed.
Refine and enhance the colours you want to use – for the painted walls or wallpaper, furniture, blinds and curtains. The third colour could be a highlight for cushions, lampshades, bed quilts and accessories such as a tablecloth or even a painting. Interior designers suggest using three colours are normally better than two – use these colours throughout the room.
Place the mood board in a room and live with it for a while.
