A mood board is a tool that helps you put all of your ideas together in one place. Interior designers use mood boards to outline the general style, desired mood, preferred colors and overall feel or a room or space they are working on. Used during the initial planning stages of a design project, a mood board helps visually convey ideas, thoughts, desires and preferences. Mood boards can also be helpful in outlining elements that should be avoided in a project, too.
