Monday Mood Board: Traditional Dining Room

If you saw the Traditional Living Room Mood Board I posted last Monday then you probably noticed that this one looks pretty similar.  That’s because both mood boards are for the same client.  The house features an open floor plan with a clear sight line from entryway to living room to dining room.  To make each room feel connected yet unique, I increased the depth of color from one room to the next.  The basic color palette remains the same, but the dining room hues are more rich and saturated.  The result is a dining room with a hint of drama befitting the home’s classic Victorian architecture.

As mentioned in my recent post, The Importance of Mood Boards in E-Design, a Mood Board is a collage of images that represent the interior designer’s vision for a particular space.  Mood boards often combine photos of rooms from design magazines and blogs, abstract images, and photos of furniture or decor that may eventually be used in the design.  The designer’s vision is based upon the client’s initial description of their style, needs, and goals for their room.  By gathering images together in a mood board, a designer can paint a clear picture to convey style, mood, color scheme, and more.  I like to add text to my mood boards to ensure that the client can easily understand the reason I chose each photo.
