Visual communication is probably the most important tool in compiling a colour scheme for presentation to a client. Mood boards or concept boards are the vessel an interior designer would use to deliver a range of options. These boards can include colours only or can incorporate an entire scheme right down to the fixtures and furniture. If incorporating colour, concept boards should contain the actual colour swab and not a computer generated one as they do not represent true colour. Other components such as fabrics and furniture can be downloaded from an online source but should be used as a guide and not a true example. Also, images of finished rooms could be included, again as a guide to achieve the desired result.
It is also important to compile more than one visual mood or concept board from which the client can convey their preferences. This helps the designer create a concept that is as unique as the individual.
