Do you have an inspiration board? Inspiration boards are very important to organizing your ideas and the plethora of visual ideas that are now before us with the variety of online resources. Houzz and Pinterest are both based on this idea. I use shared online boards with my clients in order to bring visual focus to a project and get into my client’s heads to discover what they like both visually and emotionally. This tool makes me a more efficient designer!
I also highly recommend having a physical inspiration board somewhere in your life where you can keep magazine clippings, colors and fabric samples. Come by the office and I’ll share with you the many inspiration boards that we have surrounding our work environment.
