DIY: create a mood board

Time to unleash your creativity!

What is a mood board?

A mood board is a board on which you can create an atmosphere. Usually people create it to make their goals, ideas or dreams clear to themselves, or to share with other people. Or more spiritual, to share with their God or the universe.

These goals can be:

  • Where do I want to be next year in my career?
  • What kind of house do I want to buy?
  • What is important to accomplish in 5 years (work, travel, family)?

Old-fashioned tinkering or digital?

The choice is yours! There are actually no rules when making a mood board. The most important thing is that everything you put on your mood board gives you a good feeling. Don’t think about it too much. Before you start, think about what purpose this moodboard has. Get inspiration from old magazines, books, newspapers, wallpaper, napkins. Anything goes… Go with the flow! Do you prefer to work digitally? With Pinterest you can create the most beautiful moodboards in one click (we also use this app)! 

When you’re ready…

Take another look at your mood board the day after you have finished and write down the feelings the board gives you. Only then is it time to give your board a title! Tip: in the book ‘The secret’ by Rhonda Byrne you will learn more about visualising your thinking skills and feelings.
