Creating a Storyboard for your next design project...
Before committing to any decorating or design project, it is important to take time to create a simple storyboard. This is something anyone can do and is a great way to compile ideas, pictures, samples and swatches and view them together as a group.
Here is our recommended step by step process:
Start with pictures and ideas - which can come from magazines, catalogues and brochures.
Ask suppliers for swatches and samples.
Use white cardboard as a base. This will help to represent your colours accurately.
Arrange your swatches and samples to see how they all work together.
Like pieces in a jigsaw puzzle, play around until everything seems to fit and work together in harmony. Anything you're unsure of should be removed and replaced with something more suitable.
Once you're completely happy, glue everything down. Then use this storyboard as the basic style guide for your new design scheme.
Those are our tips to creating a simple storyboard for your next design project, have fun creating something wonderful!
