A picture expresses beyond words on paper.  A mood board showcases beyond ideas in the mind. As a tool used in guiding the design process, a mood board allows one to get insight of the design concepts, ideas and inspiration. They offer a glimpse of the style of a space and allow for flexibility and changes in the process of generating design decisions. This class will offer guidance on how to create your own mood boards for your living spaces. We will learn the benefits of using mood boards, how to identify the mood and emotion of your space, what to include in the mood board and how to translate the mood board ideas into actual design decisions. Participants will be encouraged to use a space in their own homes as a learning laboratory for testing and implementing the concepts that we learn. There is no prerequisite for this course, just a desire to make your space beautiful and meaningful.
