Creating a mood board is a a practice in svadhyaya, or self-study. Pulling inspiration and assembling it all together in one place gives me a chance to study my choices in color, texture, light, and composition. For me, it’s about more than just collecting images I love; it codifies my feelings and my perspective on life. It tells a story—my story.

My spring mood board is full of life! The green branches and bright light pay homage to nature and a deep faith in the cycle of rebirth. Those pops of pink and red feel playful and bright. And the spacious, modern design of that living room is really speaking to me right now; it’s relaxed but thoughtful, and reflects a shift in my taste from traditional to more of an unbuttoned take on classic style.
I translated my mood board into a wishlist for spring. I would love to get my hands on
any all of these treasures!
You can create your own mood board by tearing pages out of magazines, archiving photos on Instagram or in a special folder on your phone, or with a Pinterest board. The key is to have one place where you can see all of your chosen inspiration; it will help you identify a theme, a mood, and an intention for the season. This practice will offer you valuable insight into the lens through which you see your experience, your life, and yourself.
