So, I have this thing with mood boards. Not so much making them – though I do that from time to time too – but what I really love is looking at other people’s mood boards.

If you’ve ever read my About page or my very first blog post, then you know that I’m fascinated by the creative process.  I love to get an under-the-hood peek at what’s inspiring all those capital-C Creatives out there, and one of the most obvious (though no less satisfying) ways to do that is to look to their inspiration boards.

Pinterest has become a great place to get to know what’s inspiring all those great designers, artists and makers out there, but – if you ask me – nothing beats the real life mood board.

In fact, I’m pretty sure my ultimate mood board would be a collage of the printouts of all of these mood boards.

Trippy, right?

That’s how much I love them.

So here you have it: 15 IRL (that’s “in real life” to you, Mom) mood boards to inspire your own creative endeavors this weekend – or just, you know… to look at.

I can honestly say I follow MaeMae & Co’s Instagram for the mood boards. Gorgeous! Oh, and their paper design ain’t bad either.

    Hey!

    I just love your website and all you do! I have been following you for a while thank you for honoring artists and showcasing them!

    I am an artist myself and I am redoing my website and I was wondering if you would let me know the font you used on this page for the “date” and TITLE? I just really like it and can’t seem to find it. IT would be so appreciated!

    Thank you,
    jessica
