Creating the luxury home of your dreams is no easy task and sometimes there are no words to describe your design ideas. Don’t worry, we know exactly how you feel, but one of the best ways to get your designs across effectively, is to get visual.
Creating a mood or inspiration board when building your dream home is a great way to stay inspired and ease the decision-making process. But gone are the days of trawling through magazines and cutting out your design ideas. The internet is full of inspiration and concepts can be found easily with a quick Google search. But by far the best way to collect and store all of your design ideas in one place is through Pinterest.
Think of Pinterest as a virtual mood board which allows you to scroll through thousands of photos and pin your favourites into collections or boards. Pinterest allows you to create and upload photos into custom boards like ‘Bathroom Ideas’ or ‘Luxury Flooring’, which can then be shared and re-pinned by others who are inspired by the photos. It is easy to get lost in the Pinterest world with so many beautiful and inspiring boards, but by following and collecting ideas that resonate with you and your style, your dream home will start to come to life.
In any relationship between designer and client, communication is always key. But we are all different, with diverse experiences, ideas and styles. Words will rarely suffice when it comes to communicating your dream home vision, and that’s where a mood board comes in. Your mood board can be as limited, or as expansive as your heart desires.
Are you a minimalist? Contemporary? Traditionalist? Do you place importance on open floor plans with space for a family lifestyle, or does your life require a structured home design with secluded areas for working? Neutrals or bright colours? Tiles or polished concrete?
Bring all of your ideas to life with a comprehensive mood board, which you can then take to your designer. If you find yourself unable to convey certain styles or ideas, Pin it! Having the freedom to sit down and both look at a collection of images means you’ll all be on the same page from the beginning and is guaranteed to streamline your entire design process.
Not only is Pinterest great for inspiration, the platform is a great way to keep on top of the latest design trends each season. And with photos linking to the original sources, you can always find more information about products or designs.
