Interior Styling | Home Moodboards

2.04.2013

As you know, I love creating moodboards from images I find via my Pinterest boards or around the web, but today I'm going to talk about the real-life kind that you can make for your home. To start with, I've found some great ideas for turning simple photo collages into something fun and unique.   


Sticking your favourite photos on to a blackboard wall, like in the kitchen above allows you to personalise the surrounding area with messages, drawings or quotes. In addition to family photos you could stick little keepsakes like treasured invitations, tickets to a memorable show or even your child's artwork.




A cute idea for the bedroom or living area, heart shaped collages are very cool, as is the one below which covers the entire length of a bedroom pillar.




I love how  Karine Kong of Bodie and Fou has used black washi tape to stick pictures on to the wall of her London home.

I'm looking forward to displaying a moodboard in the workspace of our new home. Personal photos, tear slips from favourite magazines and catalogues, postcards or any work-related/personal inspiration can be brought together to create an eye-catching feature. As with my virtual moodboards, I like the idea of sticking to a colour theme. Always a winning combo, the workspaces shown below are gorgeous in black and white with touches of pink. 



The curator of the one above has gone all out, covering the wall above the desk with a mix of fantastic visual inspiration. Completing the look, in true Scandi-style, are a pair of fabulous antlers. 


An alternative to sticking images to the wall, you can use a board like in the one above. A store bought memo board, piece of plywood or board covered in fabric would do the trick nicely. Below are some more ideas, including a couple of clever DIY's. 


This one, thanks to Heidi of the gorgeous Norwegian blog FruFly, is simply a canvas painted with blackboard paint. Special photos, together with little notes and doodles make for a very sweet family moodboard!  




I especially love the gold framed 'love' moodboard and the one above made from a vintage pull-down map.

I hope that's given you a nice dose of design inspiration for your Monday! One more thing before I go... you may have noticed that I've installed a 'pin it' button on the blog, which means you can now pin images from my posts to your Pinterest boards with one click! Simply hover over the image until the 'P' appears on the top right-hand corner, click on it and pin! So easy!

  1. You have inspired me. I think I am going to simply print off a whole lot of family photos from my computer in black and white, use washi tape and create a mood board. My favourite is that sepia coloured one above the couch. x

  2. Love photo mood boards, it brings such personality to a room, especially love it with washi tape! On my list of many things to do here but first I need to print them! I did something similar in Sydney minus the washi tape though...

  3. These are all great. I'd love to have one by my desk, with photos and tear sheets etc, but as my desk is our living room, I try and keep it a bit simpler. One day, when I have my own office! x

  5. Definitely a good dose of inspiration! Wonderful stylish ideas to display photos in a tidy, neat way. I don't like to have too many photos frames in one room yet it's a shame to keep photos hidden away. A lovely surprise to find that you are my new follower - thank you. I've spent some time looking at your previous posts and I'm pleased to be following on Bloglovin' and Pinterest - looking forward to more design inspiration!

  6. Great inspiration for me here also! If you could see my study... horrendous! Going to get in there today, file and attempt to start my moodboard. Have just bought some new washi tape too, so no excuse :) x

    1. Tell me about it .. the joys of renting, while we build. I think washi tape is the way to go. I can't wait to use mine. You'll have to post a pic when it's finished! x

  7. Pinterest has definitely become my go-to for all things interior design! I adore these... particularly because I've always wanted a cute design to display my many photos of my boyfriend, my cat, myself, and my friends. Thank you so much for sharing! :)

    xo,

  9. These are such cool images. We have a panel of chalkboard in our kitchen/dining/family area that visitors always gravitate to and add their words of wisdom or pics (always interesting to read the morning after!!) & I have started sticking images to it with washi tape so it has ended up looking like your first image. Such fun & always changing x
