Another day, another viral trend that’s taken the Internet by storm. This time, the viral trend in question is the delightful Dopamine Decor trend.
A complete antithesis to the minimalist, beige and white decor trend that had a chokehold on the Internet for ages, Dopamine Decor is all about embracing maximalism and playing around with colours and patterns.
Dopamine is the neurotransmitter which induces feelings of happiness when released in the brain. The trend aims to create spaces that spark joy and make you feel instantly happy.
How to add ‘Dopamine Decor’ to your space?
Essentially, Dopamine Decor is all about infusing your space with personality and shunning rules in favour of picking out decor that makes you feel happy. It means experimenting with colours and filling your space with pieces that you like, regardless of rules about clashing patterns or textures. However, this means that the trend is deeply individualistic and depends completely on your taste and preferences.
But there are some guidelines that you can follow to ensure your space induces dopamine and not a migraine every time you enter it!
Consistency can help you create a harmonious and aesthetically pleasing space when experimenting with Dopamine Decor. You can go for a pre-decided colour palette and experiment with shades of the same colour or complementary hues. You can also settle for neutral base tones and play around with colourful and vivid accents.
