Design boards are our source of origination and creativity! Our overlays contain different fabrics, paint colors, inspirational items, cabinetry finishes, textures, wall coverings and images. This is where we start all our projects. We curate these items and place them on a design tray, collaborating and creating a scheme for each client’s palette!
Design boards help us show our clients what we are thinking. They help us translate their words and phrases describing their home and turn them into imagery. They are a physical and visual way to express and present ideas in a way that others can visually follow.
First, we develop a theme or style. Lately at our team meetings we have been curating one word into a design. Our past words have been botanical, sahara, west coast, bouquet, etc. Everyone in the office is involved with making their own design board. It shows how one word can be interpreted differently from person to person, which is why visual representations in what we do is so important!
Design boards are a great starting point for design and inspiration. It is a visual aspect that helps the client feel and picture what their space will look like!
