Inspiration boards are one of my favorite things to put together. After the initial consult with a new client, I will have gathered a lot of the most important information:
-what will you and your family be doing in this space?
-what furniture/art that you have do we need to work back into the space?
-what colors are you drawn to?
-what “feel” do you want in the room?
And, we’ve had the chance to talk through some main design decisions:
-paint color [or at least a few options] -art layout: where the focal wall is.
The inspiration board is then born. It becomes a spring board for conversation and the direction of the room. Gives me a chance to really solidify how we can make this a room that you and your family are going to love.
Here are 2 inspiration boards that I recently created for a dining room. The focus was on the main focal wall and a small sitting area off to the side of the room. My client and I were then able to discuss which option she liked best, which items she didn’t care for, and how we could bring the “inspiration board look” alive in her room.
