Interior Design: Creating a Vision Board

This workshop offers an imaginative session where participants will create an interior design vision board.

A vision board is a tool used to showcase a collage of images, fabric swatches, paint colors, wood samples, and other materials that tell a design story or convey inspiration for one.

The Harcum College opportunity to create a vision board allows prospective students explore interior design ideas and communicate their own sense of taste, style, and overall feel for a room of their choosing.
