1. Gathering images

Find our Pinterest boards πŸ‘†πŸΌabove at

Before you start pinning and saving images, create different Pinterest boards for each area of the room.

• Living room
• Kitchen
• Dining area
• Bedrooms (Master bedroom, Study/Office, Kid’s room)
• Bathroom

While Pinterest is commonly known to be the main source of inspiration, Instagram, websites of ID firms, Qanvast, Renonation, Home & Decor Singapore etc. are also great sources of gaining home inspiration in Singapore’s context!

2. Going through the images

The common mistake that most make is to pin endless amount of images but never going back to look through them.

You may have thought that “the more inspiration, the merrier!”

However, do not make this mistake of over-pinning, it will only cause yourself to be confused and unfocused with what you are looking for.

Remember to allocate time to look through every image you have pinned and ask yourself these questions

✨ What does it resonate in me?

✨ Is it the style, the colour, the layout or the atmosphere?

While you do this, eliminate images that doesn’t add value to your mood board. Soon, you will be able to keep your mood board concise and clear.

3. Pick only the most representative images

Look through your Pinterest board as a whole and observe

✨ Are there are any recurring elements?

✨ Is there a colour that you particularly love?

✨ What is the overall mood that is common in most of the images?

Further narrow down your collection to no more than 15 images that covers all different elements as mentioned above.

Each image should represent what you are envisioning well enough.
