This can be a really useful way of devising a colour scheme for a room, particularly if you’re not sure where to start. Inspiration for a room can come from anywhere. A photograph, a fabric sample, a toy, a favourite football team colour, a cushion, a wallpaper.
Once you have found your source of inspiration, you can pick out some of the colours within this to find colours for the walls, furniture and accessories of your room.
Create a mood board
Collecting all the items you would like to put together in the room in one place can give you an idea of how the items and colours will work together. You could do this by creating a physical mood board of actual samples of the items or colours. Or by collecting images of the items and colours onto a computer generated board as I have done below. Putting all your ideas in one place gives you an overview of how they will all look together. It also helps you avoid buying things that just do not work with the rest of the room.
Try it and get your creative juices flowing!!
