Do you love a soft and subtle color palette?
I do, but I don’t seem to feel as comfortable with only soft colors in my own home.
I always find myself adding contrast to a subtle palette, even though I appreciate soft colors.
Do you like a more subtle palette?
What’s your color scheme at home?

Our House Mood Board

The Inspired Room Mood Board

Creating a mood board can be a very helpful way to figure out what mood or look you want to create in your home. We made our mood board (above) on the computer with Photoshop, but you can create something inspiring for your home with a bulletin board, too.

A mood board can help you start to visualize how old pieces will work in a new space, or how new furniture or lighting could be mixed in with pieces you already have to create a whole new look.

It’s fun to get creative with a color palette, or remind yourself of colors and patterns you’ve already committed to. You can even play around with color tones and intensities of color to change the mood of a space!

I find it’s helpful sometimes to get away from the room itself and instead play with the elements and color family on paper (or the computer) until you find a combination that inspires you.

Do you ever make mood boards for your home?

PS. Yesterday we kicked off The Love Your Home Challenge! See the list of week one’s challenges here!
