Alexa, play Happy by Pharrell Williams. Colour and joy filled design is sweeping the world of fashion and interiors in 2022, adding a well needed pep into our step and an injection of pizazz on the days when life is feeling less than smiley. Gone are the days of minimal, neutral interiors; colour is seriously having its moment in the spotlight, and to that we say, hooray!
There is in fact a science behind bright colours and their positive impact on mood, meaning a dopamine decor filled homeware haul is likely to get those endorphins flowing.
Whilst colourful design and print of course aren’t an antidote to all woes, there is in fact a science behind bright colours and their positive impact on mood, meaning a dopamine decor filled homeware haul is likely to get those endorphins flowing. Happy colours tend to include bright and warm shades like yellow, orange, pink and red, in addition to pastel colours like peach, light pink or lilac also being said to have an uplifting effect on ones mood. For an ultimate dopamine hit, consider combining multiple primary and secondary colours together to trigger the most positive feelings in your home sanctuary.
If you’re feeling stuck when switching up your interiors with positivity in mind, consider the phrase more-is-more to be your sign post to success with this trend. Be it patterned wallpaper, shelves dressed with colourful books and vases or going all out with a statement pastel fridge, lean in to the idea that maximalism embraces clashing and eclectic styles, and hit ‘checkout’ on the items that seriously spark joy within you.
