There’s no shortage of dream home inspiration out there. But how do you get from swooning over beautiful homes to taking action? That’s where Style Sourcebook comes in!
The first step in refining your vision for any interior design project, is creating a mood board. This is where you collect your ideas, source product, and start to get a sense for how everything will come together in a space.
Style Sourcebook makes mood boarding easy, with their simple drag-and-drop tool, and a marketplace of over 130,000 interiors products to source from, all in one place.
Here’s our step-by-step guide to creating your very own mood board using Style Sourcebook, inspired by one of our favourite TDF homes; the dreamy Ivanhoe renovation of designer Sarah Conly.
Tip 1. Start with a space that inspires you.
There’s nothing more daunting than a blank canvas – or in this case, a blank mood board. Kick off the creative process by collecting reference images of spaces that inspire you. You don’t need to go crazy, two or three pics is a great start!
Tip 2. What catches your eye first?
Now it’s time to really dissect what it is about your reference photos that really takes your fancy. What catches your eye first?
In this case, the distinctive features of Sarah Conly’s dining room that really stand out to us are the hanging paper pendant lamp and the woven rattan dining chairs. The coloured glassware on the table in golden tones is also a gorgeous finishing touch.
Once you start looking closely at your reference pics, it quickly becomes clear what components you need to find, to re-create a similar look!
