Create a digital mood board online with these free tools
Creating a mood board online is a great way to quickly create a sample of the decoration style you would like to achieve. It is particularly useful if you’re planning to do most of your home decor shopping on the internet and you don’t tend to buy many decorating magazines. It is also very practical because, unlike traditional mood boards (the ones that you can create on a poster boards using samples, printouts and cuttings from magazines) it does not require any preparation and it doesn’t cost a penny!
I have been doing some digging and I have found 3 fantastic free online tools that easily let you create a mood board in a couple of clicks.
If you decide to give them a try too, it’d be great if you could let me know your thoughts and show me your curious creations too!
Mydeco has got to be one of my favourite sites as it packed full of quirky home decorating ideas and inspiration.
You can start experimenting with this tool straight away without registering. However, if you don’t register you will only be able to add Mydeco recommended products to your board and you will not be able to include your own items (ie pictures that you have seen on other sites and saved on your computer). Also, you won’t be allowed to save your creations so taking 2 minutes to register to the site is well worth it. Click here if you fancy giving it a try!
Olioboard works in a very similar way to the Mydeco tool but you will be required to register before you can create your first mood board.
You can simply drag and drop items from their library of accessories or upload your own.
The downside is that the site is based in the US and only offers products available from American stores. You can register here.
ImageSpark hasn’t specifically be designed for home decorating mood boards but it’s still a great and useful little tool. Unlike Mydeco and Olioboard, it does not have a preset library of home accessories so you will have to start collecting inspiring images and products from elsewhere on the web, save them on your computer and then upload them to the site. Register here to try it out.
