Happy Tuesday friends! Mood boards are a perfect way to gather thoughts and lay out the plan for a space prior to buying items and creating a design board in PowerPoint makes it easier. This helps to eliminate a lot of ordering and/or going back and forth to stores, which we all know can be a pain. I’m no interior designer at all, but I love to create a design mood board in PowerPoint for the various projects that I work on, specifically when I may be working on a new room design. You can see where I’ve created them here and here.
There are various programs, software and even apps available, but I want to show you how to create a design mood board in PowerPoint. It’s pretty easy and by the end of this post, you will easily be creating some of your own design mood boards! Let’s get started.
To begin, open a blank page in PowerPoint. Make sure that if there are any text boxes, they are deleted by clicking the box and hitting delete.
Next, in Google, start selecting images that you would like to add to your board. For example, if you are working on a bedroom project, start with the type of headboard that you are looking for.
Click on Images and Select the image that you feel fits the aesthetics and copy and paste it to PowerPoint.
After pasting the image, select Picture Format…
Then select remove background on the far left.
Everything that highlights in purple will delete. Anything that you don’t want to delete, you can extend the cursor so that it will not include anything that you don’t want deleted. Once you have the photo the way you want, select Keep Changes. This will automatically save a photo and show it as you see fit.
As you add items, the photos will begin to stack on top of the previously pasted images. For example in the photo below, you can see that when I added the rug, it pasted on top of the headboard. No worries, this can be fixed by following these steps:
Right click on the pasted photo, select Send to Back. If you need to bring a photo on top of another, follow the same steps and select Bring to Front.
Keep adding until you’re happy with your room design or project. This is a random room I threw together, but I am sort of digging the elements for my own bedroom makeover one day.
Once you have everything added to the mood board as you desire, you are done! You can save the page as a PDF or just save it in PowerPoint. It’s up to you.
Its super simple and again, I know that there are software and things out there that may work better for you, but it’s all a matter of preference.
That’s it! Do you have a particular software that you like to use? Let me know!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Until next time!
Make sure you pin for later!
What a great idea! I can’t wait to try this for the home office project I have in mind.
Yay awesome! Good luck!
