Here's a Great Freebie or Something

And here's Information about it. Click here!

When I started planning our Primary Bathroom for the One Room Challenge I did not put a mood board together. Right? I know….I know… I had my hero pattern (more about that here) and marched myself right to Ace Hardware to get a handful of paint samples which I then dutifully put on the walls in different places and looked at them in different light. All the things.

And I’m sure you can guess what happened. Nothing felt right and I ended up sitting on my bathroom floor frustrated and overwhelmed. Lesson Learned.

Mood Boards can be incredibly simple yet make a massive impact. Pinterest is great for the big picture inspiration but taking it a click deeper into a mood board hones in on your style, your go to colors, textiles, patterns, feel of the space, and more. 

Primary Bathroom Mood Board

They can be used for a particular room design as in my case, or if you’re struggling to nail down your overall style or create a more cohesive home from room to room, they can be used for that too! Really anything. They can be electronic or good ‘ol fashioned paper clippings on a real life pinboard. 

Pinboard Ideas

I recently started using Canva to mood board and have never looked back. There is a free version or Canva Pro is $120 for the year. The biggest difference for me is the Canva Pro does have a background remover tool. But you could always remove the backgrounds prior to uploading pictures into Canva by going to https://www.remove.bg/. Canva has an app and a desktop version which is nice to have that flexibility. Before I had Canva I used just about anything – a google doc, word doc, powerpoint, etc. It doesn’t have to be fancy! 

Then just start! Throw some pictures on there. Then some more. Then edit, edit, edit!! Keep it casual and don’t worry about room layout or placement. You can mood board with just a small handful of key items and let the room evolve as you go or put absolutely everything on there. I think I fall somewhere in the middle.

What draws your eye first? What makes you feel excited? What feels off? I promise your natural style will start to show through! And you’ll have more confidence than ever.
