Dining Room : Inspiration Board

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:
     -furniture layout
     -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.

 
Do you have a favorite?
