Mood boards are essential tools for interior designers because the look and feel of an interior or exterior space that will be created can be made more concrete for clients. Colors, textures, furniture, materials—these are just some of the things that can be placed in a mood board. In the same way, homeowners can use mood boards when they are considering to renovate the home or to give a particular room a makeover. For this reason, we have made so many mood boards in the Let it B blog to provide readers with color and design inspirations. Here are the top 10 mood boards in the MyBoysen blog in 2021.

Light brown to brownish orange—these are the tawny colors of the tiger. Golden and warm, these colors can lift the energy of any space.

Tiger markings are the way they are so that tiger scan easily blend in with their habitat. Not so when these colors are used in interiors. Paint your walls off-white then add dark brown to blond wood furniture. Make use of the many rattan home accessories that are available in the country. Bring in bright orange or gold hues by using these colors in lamps, fabrics, and artworks.

9.  The Red Edge

Paint Your Home a Joyful Red | MyBoysen

Primary colors get attention, especially red. It’s that hue that emits the come-hither vibe, whether it be in lipstick or on a wall. No one can ignore red because it is an intense, fiery color. It goes well in a child’s room as an accent color. This is also a good color for a living room or a dining room, especially if you are an extrovert who loves to invite people to your home. Not during this pandemic though.

If you are not sure about red, then just use it for an accent wall or on trims. But if you are the adventurous type, give red a go by painting this color on a much bigger surface.
