What is Dopamine Decor?

First, let's start with a scientific explanation. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter in the brain's reward center. When we do something that makes us feel good, dopamine is released and we feel happy.
On to the decoration now, the Dopamine Decor, is a new trend we're seeing quite a bit on TikTok and it's about creating a space that makes us feel happy. Some of the features we usually see, are bright colors, bold patterns and other elements that make us smile. Therefore, the goal of this style is to surround ourselves with things that make us happy in order to increase our dopamine levels!

How to replicate the style:
Fortunately or unfortunately, there are no specific or strict rules when it comes to Dopamine Decor. But we can identify some general elements that you can follow if you want to incorporate this style into your home.
Regarding the colors, one of the best features of this style, is that it allows you to experiment with bolder colors. Choose bright, cheerful colors like yellow, orange and pink. These colors are known to boost dopamine levels in the brain. You don't have to paint an entire wall in these colors. You can incorporate them with your furniture and decorations.

Patterns and textures can also be used to create a dopamine-friendly space. Think geometric shapes, stripes, psychedelic, plaid, animal print, floral or anything else that catches your eye. You can mix and match different patterns without your space looking chaotic. Just make sure the overall effect is still pleasing to the eye. Choose fun, colorful pillows and blankets that showcase these patterns.
