You’ve heard of dopamine dressing (I, for one, am a fan) and now, I give you ‘dopamine decorating’!
Whether you’re in lockdown or just spending more time at home, get your mug cakes ready, folks, this selection will revitalise both your room and your mood I-SO much...you might never wanna leave. Best of all, most of these pretty products are available online. Yup, you don’t even have to leave the house or mask up to shop.
1. Art Prints
Art is a sure-fire option to adding inexpensive cheer to your walls and many local artists offer affordable print versions of their originals. There are also print-on-demand services like Society 6 that acts as an artist directory!
Jungle Vaycay, Society 6 // from $54.40
All The Lovers, The New Devine // from $120
2. Wall Hangings
All the impact minus the framin’ fuss, wall hangings are a perfect alternative to adding a little colour and texture to your walls.
Alamarita Woven Wall Hanging, Sage + Clare // $399
3. Wall Decals
The very best decoration for renters or indecisive Librans (me). High-quality decals make it easy to change your mind because they don’t leave sticky goo on the walls when you remove them. They’re also a fab way to lift a decorated room if it still feels a little blah.
Instant mood-booster, guaranteed! As a seasoned plant-mum (sometimes over-waterer), I can assure you, they bring all the joy. They’re also fabulous air filters, especially if you’re stuck inside. Some nurseries even deliver!
Little Bella Pot, Little Leaf Decor // $36
5. Dried Blooms
My current obsession, they look stunning and last for ages. You can go neutral or opt for an explosion of colour. Either way, they’ll add a little sophistication to any space.
Comfiness and colour for the win! Cushions are one of those items of which you can never really get enough. I keep a stack in my cupboard and change them around when a room needs a little spruce.
Nancy Knit Cushions, Sage + Clare // $149
And to top things off, rearrange the furniture to get an endorphin kick! Guaranteed to get your blood pumping while giving you a sense of achievement post-decorating.
