Tips for Creating an Inspiring Fall Mood Board

InspirationKimberly HeimbachComment

I LOVE creating a new mood board every season. it just gets me in the mood and helps me to organize my thoughts for the season. It is a combination of art, imagery and quotes.

My process for creating mood boards includes:

  1. Collecting tear outs from magazines the old fashion way.

  2. Saving pins on Pinterest to a seasonal board then printing out on glossy photo paper.

  3. Adding personal elements liked dried flower crowns I’ve worn at events and watercolor illustrations.

  4. Using extra tools like scalloped edge scissors and gold pins to put it all together.

As an on going process I have a folder where I collect inspiration as I come across it so when I am ready to update my board I have alot of fun things to look through and see what fits the board. I think of color palettes and the season to keep everything cohesive. You can shop all my recommended essentials for an inspiring moodboard on Amazon.

Changing seasons bring on the inspiration for me. As you can tell from all my recent fall content. It inspires me to try something new, embrace a seasonal color palette, revel in the weather, let go of the old and make room for the new. Here at Ladyfolk Studio we are all about incorporating beauty and creativity into everyday and a seasonal bucket list is one way to do just that.

You can make your own list of what will inspire you and what you would like to accomplish this fall season or pick and choose a few from my fall bucket list below.

  1. Visit a pumpkin patch.

  2. Have a bonfire and roast smores.

  3. Run through a corn maze.

  4. Carve the perfect pumpkin.

  5. Make a fall wreath.

  6. Bake cookies.

  7. Go for a long hike.

  8. Visit an Oktoberfest with friends.

  9. Go apple picking.

  10. Visit a haunted house.

It all starts with the shift to cooler weather in October. Followed by my dating anniversary with my husband October 11th, then my birthday October 20th and then Halloween! I mean what is not to LOVE about all that! A few other things I love about Fall…

  1. Candy corn and Pumpkin flavored everything!

  2. Lighting candles all over the house.

  3. Decorated front door stoops.

  4. Red lipstick and dark nail polish.

  5. Halloween movies every night in October.

  6. Rainy days and hygge.
