Design 101: Concept/Mood Boards

When contemplating a redesign, ask your interior designer to present a concept board with all of the finishes they plan to use in your new space:
 

A concept board is a wonderful tool that allows you to easily visualize all of the fabrics, color swatches, finishes, and textures that may eventually adorn your new pad.  
It also helps demonstrate how each element will unite with the space to create a sophisticated final look.
 

 
Another great reason to use concept boards?
It can help you see what might be missing in your current design and
can direct you to those special pieces that will help round out your space.
