In an era where wellbeing and happiness take centre stage, it’s no surprise that interior design trends are picking up in this. Enter Dopamine Décor – a look that not only aims to beautify your home but also to boost your mood and create a sense of joy. Here’s our advice on creating living spaces that inspired and invigorated.
The Power of Colour: Colour psychology plays a pivotal role in dopamine décor. Opt for bright, uplifting shades like sunny yellows, vibrant oranges and lively blues. These stimulate the release of dopamine in your brain and evoke feelings of happiness. Shop the look at Primark Home.
Personalised Spaces: Create a room that’s very you with clashing prints and statement artwork in beautiful bolds and brights. You don’t need to cover entire walls with the look; even small accents like cushions, throws and artwork make a big impact. Checkerboard bedding from Weird Stock.
Playful Patterns and Textures: Incorporate playful patterns with mix and match vibrant textiles, such as cushions, rugs and wallpaper for an inviting and tactile environment. Experiment with various textures, from velvets to knits, to add depth and comfort. Blackberry Rose wallpaper, by Olenka Design.
Natural Elements: Incorporate nature into your décor. Houseplants add a touch of greenery while improving air quality and reduce stress. Natural materials like wood and stone add texture to your space. You can fake it with blooms, florals and botanicals in your choice of accessories, like these from Dunhelm.
Thoughtful Arrangements: The way you arrange your furniture can greatly affect the flow and energy of your home. Ensure your furniture arrangement is both functional and aesthetically pleasing, allowing for easy movement and a harmonious balance of energies in your living spaces. Pink velvet sofa, from DFS.
