Raised in California and transplanted to Utah. Married my college sweetheart from Montana, and we are raising 4 nuggets together. I love all things DIY projects and doing them on a budget. I don’t mind messing up and am ok with the 90/10 rule - nothing is perfect over here and it’s fine by me! Encouraging all ‘wanna-be’ DIYers to just get out there and try it! You will be so glad you did.”
Making a living room mood board is easier than you think. I am partnering with Carpet One Floor and Home to showcase how simple it is to incorporate their new spring trends into your mood board design.
I have a space that has been changed a few times and I would love to change up again in the future, but I am still in the planning stages. Our living room is currently a farmhouse style.
I am creating a physical mood board this time around. Digital mood boards are also fun to make.
Not sure what a mood board is and how it can help you in your design process? Check this definition out:
Mood boards allow you to gather inspiration, articulate a feeling or mood, and pitch ideas. A mood board typically consists of images, color palettes, and typography.Miro.com
How do you make a mood board? There are so many different ways for you to start. Here is what I do:
My mood board will be a basic style of flooring and color combinations, mixed with decor pieces. As I get closer to my project, I will add in furniture ideas as well.
Here are few great links to give you more reference to get you started:
For this project, I used the Carpet One box they sent me to create my mood board using their 2021 flooring samples.
They also have an amazing program where they will send you a samples box of 6 floor samples for $12 right to your door. It makes it so much easier to check flooring samples than heading to the store.
The 2021 Trending Samples Box I received was filled with contents that helped me create my mood board. These are items that can help you create a hands on mood board like I am doing.
Many things can give you inspiration when creating your mood board. In addition to Pinterest, I like to look at magazines and paint samples to help give me ideas.
The key component to my design box was the flooring samples. They sent all different types for me to review.
I took some time to compare the samples. I picked 3 different sets for my mood board to think about. Here is each combination and the links to each of them on the Carpet One website.
Ultimately I decided on the Hickory White Wood Floor, the Glendale Carpet and the Brandon Pier Carpet.
Carpet One Floor & Home, a cooperative with over 1,000 independently-owned flooring retailers across the nation and Canada is the largest buyer of floor covering in North America. Their flooring experts have selected 10 flooring styles in the hardwood, luxury vinyl tile, ceramic tile, broadloom carpet, and laminate categories, that represents their most popular styles for 2021. When you need help picking our flooring, their website offers tons of free help which I have listed below.
Adding paint colors and accent colors can really change up a room. I like to add a few different colors in my mood board to get a variety of ideas.
Keep in mind which furniture you are keeping or getting rid of. Then look for pieces that will fit your new style. Since I want a more boho theme, I added clay pots, greenery and rustic reeds.
My Living Room Mood Board with Carpet One is full of color and new styles for me. I loved having a change to brain storm and get creative with their 2021 flooring samples. Someday this living room will have a new fresh look! Check out this blog post to see other room ideas for your home!
